Svesse (6234) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - SEP 2, 2008
(Bottle, Monk’s Café, Stockholm) Dark brown colour with frothy, beige head. Fruity, malty nose with notes of dried fruit, raisins, prunes and chocolate. Malty, fruity taste with chocolate, dark fruit, prunes, cherries and a chocolatey finish with a slightly spicy bitterness. Smooth mouthfeel with alcohol very well hidden. Very balanced, but lacking some of the character of the cask conditioned version. Still a nice beer.
