2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Flat carbonation. Carmel and malt aromatics. Too thin and passive. This isnít something Iíd return to.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a dark brown with a coffe colored head. The aroma is malty and dark. The flavor is definitely malty but follows through with licorice and chocolate. Stays with you on the palate but is not cloying. A nice beer.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours a deep amber with a thick yellow head. Caramel aroma with undertones of orange? Sweet caramel taste with a subtle hoppiness. A slight tang in the aftertaste. This was too watery for a strong ale.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Small, malty and fruity aroma with some sourness. Medium body. Soft malt and fruits, typical english hop flavor, but itís on the low side. Average beer, and not what I would prefer of a strong bitter.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from the Systembolaget in UmeŚ. This is the sort of beer I miss living over here in Sweden - a thoroughly drinkable strong(ish) ale with bags of character. Pours a dark mahogony brown with aromas of rich black berries and a hint of coffee and smoke. Thick and rather flat mouthfeel and medium sweet middle. A smooth and balanced beer.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Light amber color, medium head with some lace. Aroma is slightly butterscotch, with some mild dark fruit (raisins) and other esters. Body is thin, flavor has some more light golden raisin upfront, but backed by sweet malts and some faint hops. Tail is fast, leading to some lingering sweetness and fruit.
