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 it’s 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 Umeå. 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.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a dark, coppery brown with a very nice, frothy head that diminishes quickly, but not entirely. The taste is malty, but doesn’t finish entirely clean. Very smooth, though, & enjoyable.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pint bottle. The beer pours a rich mahogany brown with a decentlly structured beige head. There are notes of leather, toasted oak, pumpernickel bread, and stewed cherries. Any hint of sweetness is well intigrated with a solid backbone of darker malt and a slightly charry character. A lovely beer for the style.
