3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: FEB 28, 2009 On tap at The Rover, Gothenburg. Clear, copper color and a beige head leaving nice lacings. Hops and sweet malt in the aroma and flavor. The flavor has some beefstock notes as well. Full to medium body and a long, bitter finish. Rating: 6-3-6-3-13-3.1. (060824)
Bottle. An almost clear, copper beer with an off-white to beige head. Malty nose with fluorine-like hops and a slight touch of sourness. Sweet on the palate, medium- to full-bodied, with piney and fluorine-like hops. Fine bitterness in the finish. I’ve had it in my cellar too long, it lacks the freshness I’ve tasted before, but it’s a nice and easy drinkable beer with quenching qualities. Rating: 6-3-6-3-13-3.1. (090116)
From tank at the brewery. Clear, copper-colored beer with a creamy beige head. Pine, american hops, fruits and resin in the aroma. The flavor has pine, hops, fruits and some caramel notes. Full-bodied, with a long hoppy finish. A nice one from Dugges, but it felt better fresh from the tank than from tap at a bar. (060825)

(On tap) Beautiful, clear, dark amber with a small, off-white head. Very fat hop aroma. Medium body with rich, caramelish notes and then an extremeky fresh, citrusy hopping that leaves a solid but not overpowering bitterness. Doesn’t really appear to be 7.5% 240806

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
(Draught at Glenfiddich Warehouse 68, Stockholm) Colour is dark brown, leaning towards mahogany, with a firm off-white head. Nose is malty, with underlying fruitiness, notes of dried fruit, dark cherries, blackberries and dusty hops. Taste is rather complex: starts fruity with dried fruit, prunes, raisins and underlying notes of dusty hops, turns maltier with chocolate, caramel and dark cherries, leaves slowly with fat notes of dusty hops in a bitter-sweetish finish. Complex stuff, but with great balance.
