Bottled. Coppery brown colour with a mediumsized off-white foamy head. Aroma is floral, grassy, mild caramelly and nutty notes. Flavour is bitter hops, some fruity and caramelly notes along with mild resin and wood. Still rather mild and actually watery for being this strong.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
0.33 l bottle from Alko. Amber color. Aromas of nuts, pine, rummy caramel, almonds and toffee. Nutty, caramelly and toffeish taste with pine resins, muscovado sugar, some wine gum like fruitiness and some raisiny notes. Medium body. Alcohol is perhaps a bit sharp which makes this feel stronger than 6.7 %. Nice fruit cake aromas. The taste needs more malty richness, a bit more sweetness an fullness would do good.

A bit too grassy taste for a strong ale. Medium bodied, slick palate with soft carbonation. This beer has pretty much nothing to say.
