2.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottled 2YX (Whatev that means)
Pours a nice cinnamon brown with some etched surface foam that is oat colored. Smells of toasted oats, some malt syrup, smacks cereal, and bit of cardboard. Smells sweet. Flavor is toasted and sweet oats, some cola, some bakin soda flavors. The body on this is surprisingly empty with carb and an off dry finish. I’m not impressed ewith this beer.

The beer is sweet and the alcohol shows itself even being low. I tasted caramel and a little bit bread. Sweet aroma.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
(Bottle, 0.355 l - BBE 9/2015, from Alko, 20131129) The beer poured dark brown and clear. Its head was medium sized and white. Aroma had malts, caramel, fruitiness and molasses. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were malts, caramel, molasses, raisins and bitterness. Afteraste had caramel and bitterness. Weird brew. Tastes a bit like oxidised bitter even though this should be a quite fresh bottle.

Bottled Alko. Clear deep copper color, steady beige head. Caramel, some faint hoppyness, perhaps a bit toffee. Light to medium-bodied, fizzy. Coffee, toasted toffee, nutty and bready. Not very sweet. Some lingering bitterness in the aftertaste. Somewhat a bit too simple for my liking.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Botled. Dark copper color, clear. Big head is slightly tanned. Citrussy citra-hoppy nose with caramelly and toasted nutty notes. A hint of roasted barley and very dark chocolate. Starts caramelly but quickly dries into resiny bitterness and slightly sourly roasted maltiness. Lingering bitter, dry and quite heavily toasted, dark chocolatey and almost smoky finish. In the late finish some raisiny notes appear. Quite complex malty flavors through out. Medium body frothy and fresh texture. Linering bitterness.

355 ml bottle. Clear dark reddish brown colour, thin off-white head. Aroma of toasted malt and caramel, with nuts and chocolate, and a whif of citrus hoppiness. The flavour is sweetish, toasted malty, with biscuits and chocolate, notes of nuts, and a moderately bitter, aromatic hoppy finish. Tasty.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Brown body, offwhite head. Aroma has chocolate and caramel, lots of maltiness in really nice balance. Sweetness doesn’t overcome. Noticeable bitterness in flavour. Very balanced.
