Some fennel and cherry showing up. Caramel in the finish. Nicely peppery. A hint of cinnamon appearing. A good beer.

omhper (23008) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - MAY 27, 2008
Canned. Clear dark amber. Ethanol aroma. Sweet and syrupy, metallic and garsh. There are som ne substance, like notes of grassy hops, but it’s dominated by an alcoholic burn.
Earlier Rating: 10/21/2002 Total Score: 2.4
Sampled draught at Thembi, Maastricht.
Brownish amber with creamy rich head. Huge on caramel in the nose. Very sweet. Malty start but vanishes into a sugary, syrupy finish. Feels one-dimensional and industrial.
