rarbring (1643) - Linköping, SWEDEN - FEB 20, 2015
Aroma: The smell is sweet, brown sugar, fudge, nut caramel, some fruity aromas, red forest fruits.
Appearance: The beer is clear brown red, a tan head that settles rather quickly but leaves some lacing.
Taste: The taste starts with a brown sugar note, some nut fudge, then lingonberries and cherry seeds.
Palate: Medium high carbonation, small intense bubbles, the fluid is fresh and smooth but has a lingering dryness at the end.
Overall: Quite well balanced, and not too sweet - thats nice. Enjoyed at Grills in Stockholm.
Note: Bottle Reviewed 2011-02-16.
