3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled at Monks Café, Stockholm. Pours out in a hazy reddish brown colour with a small white foam. Malty sweet aroma of hazelnuts, caramel and fudge. Full and malty sweet flavour of caramel, fudge, brown sugar, almonds and hazelnuts. Sweet but never cloyingly so finish spunned sugar, caramel, fudge and alcohol. Tasty but still quite simplistic. Lovely malt character.
