3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours dark brown with a 2 finger, creamy tan head. Very hoppy aroma, lots of citrus and tropical fruit, some pine right away, leading to roasted nuts, chocolate, coffee and light roast. Flavor starts of with chocolate, sweet cereal, roasted nuts, herbal hops, sweet, crusty white bread and floral notes, finishes with dark caramel, earth, burnt toffee, roast and leathery tannins. Palate is syrupy on entry, much more dry, but oily from there on out, with a moderate strength, but definitely sharp and blanketing carbonation. The after effects are pretty astringent. Good stuff overall, more of a Black IPA than most IPAs, but it just doesn’t fit together as well as it could. The mouthfeel could us some work as well.

Flaska stallyktan örebro. Bärnstensfärgad smått grumlig vätska med ljusbrunt skum. Maltig doft med inslag av citrus och apelsin. Något trött och övervägande maltig smak med blött oblekt papper och hint av citrus

Yum, another great beer from Beer Here! I was a bit sceptic towards it being a brown ale, which is not my favorite, but the fruity flavors from the hops do really go smoothly together with the malty flavors of rye etc. Aroma of rye bread and abricot (which I read on the bottle but it is really there). Really original and yummie flavor!

Good bitter and fruity aroma. The taste is fruity, caramel, bitter and perhaps a little sweet. Lovely bitterness in the aftertaste that fills the mouth forever. Difficult to assess, but it was good nonetheless. Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Fruity brown IPA with amazing appearance and body, but a somewhat tempered nose. There could definitely be more going on here in a bottle of certain freshness, I cannot say for sure how old this bottle is but it’s probably close to a year old. The flavors are still quite solid though, I definitely get a melon/cantaloupe quality amidst the sort of general "brownness" of the malts. A little too bitter in the finish.
