2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a watery brown with a thin head. Smells nice with dark roasted malts and chocolate but that’s where the fun stops. The taste is watery, deeply toasted malt seeming burnt at times. Looks ok, smells good, tastes worse. Actually its not that bad. Or good. Or bad.

Bottle from Systembolaget. Smell of chocolate, hard bread, also a bit funky aroma, same as their pale ale. Similar taste. I miss the roasted coffee notes, this was more like a porter.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Had not tried this in a couple years and had it on New Years Eve at the Nakameguro Taproom. Seriously underrated brew. Great example of the style, with its modest ABV, dryness, dark chocolate, dark fruits character and just a hint of baked cake. Moderate bitterness on the end and deceptively full bodied for the ABV. Solid depth and balance through out. Superb.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Didn’t realize how rare this was before opening, so sorry for not sharing it. Tight, tan head. When you smell it, you’d swear it was a West Coast hoppy amber or IPA. Plenty of C hops and a hint of black patent malts. Flavor of orange and tangerine to go along with the burnt coffee and wet forest timber. The beer has a really natural taste to it, fresh. Like lime gummyworms. I’d love to try this on a nitro pour.
