Nice dark amber colored beer. Complex but balanced taste. The alcoholpercentage might be 17, but it tastes like less. Sweet, syropy. Nice brew!

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
(Draught at Monk’s Porterhouse, Stockholm, 4 Nov 2010) Dark reddish brown colour with frothy, beige head. Malty, fruity nose with notes of caramel, dried fruit, treacle, marzipan, cherries in brandy and hints of oak wood. Malty, fruity taste with dried fruit, orange marmalade, caramel, treacle toffee and hints of citrussy hops in a slightly vinous, oaky finish. Full body, sweet with a generous bitterness. It’s quite well balanced for it’s strength. Obviously there is alcohol shining through, but not as much as 17%. Very tasty. Lovely beer.
