GTAEgeek (1502) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - AUG 7, 2015
33 cL bottle. Dark, opaque brown color, with a bit, bubbly, beige head. The aroma is simple and pleasant, with notes of brown sugar, a touch of rye, black bread, and some baking chocolate. Sweet and malty flavor, with a subtle balancing bitterness. Medium to heavy body, chalky, chewy, and dry. This is a nice, simple, and well made beer. Lovely, malty nose, and unassuming flavor.

Vignale (2577) - Malmö, SWEDEN - JUL 30, 2015
Flaska från beernavigator något år gammal. Stort skum, mahognyfärgad. Mycket kolsyra och småbubblig munkänsla. Massor av malt, känns fortfarande aningen kantig, lite kärv malt, rejäl sötma, kraftig, rustik, en inte helt integrerad beska. Kan säkert vinna på lagring något år till. Men när temperaturen stiger och kolsyran lagt sig mjukar den till en bra rustik dubbel. Gott
