3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
(Cask at Akkurat, Stockholm) Dark ruby/mahogany colour with frothy beige head. Malty nose with dark fruit, notes of wild berries and a dash of earthy hops. Malty taste with berries, dark fruit, raspberries and caramel. Pleasant dose of earthy hops in a fairly dry finish. Soft, rounded mouthfeel, some bitter-sweet notes, but mainly dry. Not really adventurous, but very tasty and with amazing balance. Seriously sessionable.

Aroma is full of fruity maltiness and so is also the taste that develops into a strong bitterness that stays for a long time. A slight toffee touch and some burnt sugar is also present.
