2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Cloudy Amber in colour with a white head. Aroma of citrus., pine, and fern leaves. Taste is quite similar with alchol burna and long lasting bitter aftertaste. I would like a better balance of flavours.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
500ml Bottle (Tack Svesse) - Brown/red in colour with a slight haze and a foamy head. Very fruity aroma with raisins, sultanas, figs, dried banana and a hint of vanilla being detected along with a moderately alcoholic scent. Fairly sweet at first, the taste then becomes a bit hoppy with some roasted and vinous notes. The finish is fairly warming and sweet and the alcohol is noticeable but is not overwhelming. It leaves a nice bittersweet fruity and hoppy aftertaste. Quite distinctive and very tasty.

Bottle at home - thanks to marsiblursi. Clear red/brown - white head. High berries, high hoppy, malty sweetness, yeasty, grass, citrus, wood, licorice, nice hoppy - but a strange mix of belgian & american beers.

Bottle, BB M 9. Pours dark amber to red, with thin head. Fruity and malty aroma of figs, plums, some apricot, bananas and dark roasted malt. Taste is soft and spritzy. Medium body, roasted grains comes through. A hint of alcohol in the finish. Very balanced and clean, with vanilla and pineapple notes in the finis. Warming alcohol without any bite in the aftertaste. A bit too sweet finish though, and quite bitter.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: APR 19, 2009 Bottle. Pours a dark amber color with a nice white head which fades away after a while, looks very inviting. Aroma is vinous and malty with toffee, dried plums and raisins. Flavour is also vinous and malty with notes of toffee, plums and raisins. Quite sweet with a small bitterness which has faded away after aging though (I remember it too be a bit bigger). Very smooth mouthfeel and fullbodied on the palate. Really good stuff actually, certainly one of the better Swedish beers. Go Dugges!

This beer is very sweet and tastes of dark fruit, plums, raisins. It is very warming due to the alcohol. A very good beer, but my expectations were higher than this beer delivered.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle, 9.8%. OK hoppy aroma, grassy with some sweet spices. Powerful flavour, sweet maltiness, some malt syrup. Roasted, vinous aftertaste. Quite strong alcohol note, very peppery, but at the same time balanced by the maltiness. Also a little aroma hops in the aftertaste.
