3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma: nice dark malts, chocolate, citrus, mango, freshly roasted coffee (very nice), the hops definitely make it so much better… Slightly off note in the background of well used idrottssalsgolv
Flavour: initally pretty bitter, fleshy, big maltiness. Some sourishness, sweetness and more bitterness comes booming. Very full-bodied. The flavour is in the realms of imperial stout, with more citrus and cocoa bitterness and less roast. This is awesome. The aftertaste if of sour cocoa. Really suprisingly cocoa-like. The hops add som e freshness which I believe lifts this up from a bitter cocoa-mess. Don’t get me wrong though, the bitterness is far from unbearable, it is just not balanced up very much sweetness, making it a beer that makes you thirsty.
Appearance: Dark earth brown, clear body. Yellowish-greyish fine head. Not creamy, but not bubbly.
Palate: Slimy as if cocoa were used. Fluffy, thick, elegant. Carbonation is rather weak (natural) – good.

Dark brown to black color. Light aroma, metallic, vanilla. Dry mouthfeel, with a sharp sourness from the roasted malt, dark caramel flavor, quite strong bitterness from the roasted malt too. It’s based only on the roasted malt, aggressive.

<i<courtesy of Per - cloudy dark brown colour with a persistent beige foam; nice lace; dusty with a robust biscuity maltiness and some sourish notes; creamy mouthfeeel, sweet and sour/acidic with a late bitterness; long malty, cookie-like finish with persistent sourish notes - very nice though I’m not fully convinced that this batch was totally under control

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, thx to OleR. A clear, ruby beer with a lasting, finger-thick beige head. Roasted nose with chocolate, raisins and hops giving citrus scents. Orange mostly. Roasted, chocolatey flavor too, with notes of dried fruits, dark sugars, citrusy hops and a little bitterness. Full-bodied and sweet. Roasted finish with citrus and a nice bitterness. A quite lovely beer, maybe not the most Christmasy beer I’ve had, but lovely anyway. Nice with some cheese. (090501)

Bottled (BB 04/2009, Vasa session).
Deep ruby color, creamy beige head, lace. Coffee, caramel, nuts and typical Dugges yeasty aroma. Very coffeish, sourness - maybe slightly infected. Also nuts, caramel and toasted malts. Some bitterness in the aftertaste. Not the Dugges’ best.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, 7.0%. Good roasted aroma, a little refreshing aroma hop. Almost black colour, nice stable light brown head. The flavour is also nicely roasted, but there is a lactic note that I do not really care for. Still a good beer, though.
