50 cl bottle from Systembolaget, Karlstad. I liked this one! Malt, caramel and some fruit in the taste. Smooth and easy to drink, even though it’s a bit thin.

Aroma of toffee, cola maybe, carbonation and some sweetish alcohol.
Quite a bit roasty on entry, mellowing out into full caramely malts.

Weak aroma of dark malt. Color is a clear dark brown with ruby highlights, and a two-finger khaki head that quickly dissipates. Smooth malty flavor with dark fruits pulling through in the finish and a sweet aftertaste. Low carbonation and kind of watery. Nice.

Poured dark brown, smelled of roasted malts. Roasted malt and nut in the mouth with semi-sweet chocolate/toffee. Good mouthfeel with enough carbonation, but a bit thin. Not too bitter like some English strong ales I’ve had.

Once again, this is a new style to me and I have to say that I really enjoyed this beer. Poured a beautiful dark brown with a thick creamy head. This beer had so much malt and caramel to ot. Very low carbination and lacing was nice also. I did detect some rasin or fig hints to it too. I thought it was a great beer, but a stong ale? hmmmm I don’t think so, maybe I’m wrong.
