SamTheBarrel (544) - Vallentuna, SWEDEN - JAN 15, 2015
750ml dark olive-green bottle with the breweries embossed logo and a sealed cap, poured into a Tulip glass. Appearance is cloudy dark brown with a medium sized foamy beige head with good retention. Aroma of orange peels, raisins and caramel. Flavours of orange peels, caramel, raisins, muscovado and loaf. Taste is medium sweet and medium bitter. Palate is full bodied, slightly sticky texture and average carbonation. Overall a good beer, but a little too sweet and unbalanced.

Russintoner, ganska lätt kolsyrad vilket passade bra och behaglig värme i eftersmaken. God öl!

VsXsV (2641) - Linköping, SWEDEN - DEC 25, 2014
Bottle. Light hazy deep copper/brown liquid with medium off-white head. Aroma of dried fruit, raw sugar, orange peel, banana, red berries, vanilla and spices. Taste is light to medium sweet and light bitter with notes of dried fruit, toffee and light sweet alcohol. Medium bodied with medium to high carbonation. Pretty good.

Bill Becker (486) - Casper, Wyoming, USA - NOV 26, 2014
It looks a chestnut colour, small bit of foam that’s gone quickly. The smell is nice. Fruity with hints of a mild tartness. The taste is of the orange peel that’s kinda bitter, again a hint of tartness. The most surprising thing is how well the abv is hidden. Light bodied with light carbonation. Pretty average brew at way above average price.

Another Very interesting beer By these guys. Appearance is a huge sick light tan head that settles down but doesn't go away, A little lace and a cloudy brown color. Aroma is very complex with balsamic vinegar, fruit, yeast malt, perfume and each time I smell it other things. Flavor is similar to aroma but not quite as complex interesting interplay between bitter sweet and tartness and has a nice dry roasted malt finish. Great body. This would be a great lunch beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
