3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Systembolaget. Pours black with some rare red hints and the nice beige layer of scum. Malty roasted aroma, not so strong, maybe some dark chocolate or cacau. The taste malty, more roasted malts with some backing bitterness more likely coming from the use of schwartzmalz rather than hops. The texture is very smooth and the carb low, and I think I would guess this would be a stout in a blind test. I am not overly fond of this beer type, I think it is one of those you should drink in situ to really enjoy, but it is a nice example of the type. Would prefer more bubbles in it, the flatness of it makes it tiresome in the long run.
