Colour and sight: Dark brown-red. A compact white-yellow, stable and lacing head. Scent: Touches of caramel, mocha and chocolate. Spices such as liquorice and coriander are also present. Flavour: Initially, a very good mouthfeel of alcohol and softness. This is followed by an increasing bitterness, partially from the hop, but also from the roasted malt and chocolate malt. Towards the end a nice balance between bitterness, sour and sweet.

Sparf (106) - Östersund, SWEDEN - MAR 28, 2014
Rödbrun. mycket vacker färg med ett tätt men snabbt halverande skum. Ganska svag, lätt syrlig arom med mycket bär, särskilt hallon och körsbär. Vinös ton med fatinslag. Torkad frukt, plommon, russin men inte alls något tryck i smaken. Mousserande karaktär. Halvfyllig. Trevligt värmande eftersmak.

Pours a dark brown color. Aromas and taste of red fruit and berries, sweetness and a fresh tinge. Not a fruit beer really, but it does remind me of one.

vomit (167) - Michigan, USA - MAR 22, 2014
Yuck. Delirium indeed. Some sort of malaise that makes me wonder why I drank this stuff instead of Blatz. My skull is suffering deliriums alright. Just not the fun deliriums that come with slamming a 12 pack of the finest: BLATZ! Keep this stuff for varnish or paint remover, or putting your tongue in the ER. Don’t question it. Don’t bother. I’ve been to Milwaukee so I ought to know.
