3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled, from Systembolaget. Dark ruby, rich firm head. Toasty nose with prunes and hay, Mid sweet with light-medium body and rounded mouthfeel. Dark bread, herbal spices, coffee and plums. Mid bitter finish. Very British, in a highly positive sense - more focus on drinkability and depth than on hip hop varieties and other features, that would attract the average hipster blogger. Would love to get this on cask.

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
50 cl bottle at Tullen Majorna, on Wednesday September 10, 2014.
Clear dark brown color, tan to light brown head. Sweet, fresh, malty, berries, banana (ripe), touch of alcohol, some liquorice scent, higher alcohols and estery. Mineral, roasted, ash taste. Dry, ash finish. Thin mouthfeel, medium bitterness that comes through rather harsh.
Turns phenolic with some warming up, also not that highly drinkable that I hoped when getting a mild ale.
Had scent at 7 at first, but with the phenolic notes lowered that to 6. Also had overall at 8 first, but lowered to 7 when it got increasingly hard to finish the beer.
Came close to returnign it at the bar and asking if it should really be this way. Not impressed, also starting to think that the excessive phenolic character might be from bacteria or wild yeast?
