Bottle @ Vinoble Odense. Pours nearly black with a creamy white head and lacings. Hoppy and roasted nose and flavor. Gazoline, berries, citrus, roast and ashy coffee. Hoppy tropical finish. I sense a bit of a baking yeast note - gladfully not enough to spoil the fun.

Tap at C4. Mild hop aroma. Cloudy black colour. Small light brown head. The flavour has a good hoppiness. There is an underlying roasted malt base, which is too dominant for me taste.

Bottle from Systembolaget. Hoppy smell with some dark malts, grapefruit, chocolate and some coffee. Roasted and toasted smell but there is also a hop aroma that moves towards pine and grapefruit. Nice mix between the dark malts and the hops.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Aroma is moderate malts with a spray of citrusfruits together with a dark and a slight pine wood sensation. The taste is at first medium sweet before the pineoil kicks in and together with a orange/citrus freshness this turns out to be quite delish. The aftertaste is slightly dry and bordering towards a smokey experience. It doesn’t tip over however and stays in the rustic Scandinavian wood area and sends memories from long walks in a shadowy pine forest on a late summer day
