3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
0.5 bottle. Clear, brown color with a reddish hue and a medium head subsiding quickly. Distinct malty aroma, wood, toffee, caramel and a bit of hops, warm and sweet. Taste is also sweet and malty, nuts and caramel, some alcohol, rather mediocre. Medium to full body, creamy texture and soft carbonation. Finish is a bit disappointing; mostly follows the taste but it also adds some skunky, barnyard-like taste. All in all the beer is not bad, but cannot be classified as anything outstanding.

65 cl bottle @ Gastropub Nordic. Rated on 25.03.2010
Aroma is rather malty with some hops and caramel. Flavour is somewhat hoppy with woody notes, some licorice, caramel and hints of grapefruit.
Too sweet. Not your typical APA, more like a barley wine.
