4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Mahogany red with a golden and dense head. The aroma has notes of fruit and light sweetness. The mouthfeel is oily. It’s a very complex beer, and the impressions invade my tongue and palate for a long time - actually the flavour develops for several minutes and goes deep down in the throat. I get notes of mango, preserved figs, licorice, pine, resin and hops - hops - hops! The sweetness are found in different levels, but never ever too sweet and the bitterness is nice and rather dominant throughout the entire flavour. A truly nice beer!!

UPDATED: NOV 11, 2005 (Number 1300, bottle in a hotel room at Gothia Towers, Göteborg) Nice amber color, great offwhite/yellowish head. Wonderful aroma from figs, nuts, rasisins, cream and toffee. Nutty flavor, strong and more and more hoppy, grassy, bitter. Great body and with a both bitter and malty finish. Id love to have this beer again...
