3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark with practically no head. Smells dark. The taste is surprisingly soft considering the alcohol level. The palate is soft too, very waterish! A quote good one!

Bottle from Systemet. Vintage 2014.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
33cl bottle from SB. BBE 01/16. Near black, thick light brown head, lasting. Dark bread, syrup, molasses in aroma. Really strong notes of ryebread, lovely. Flavor has rye, molasses, soy sauce, hint of chocolate. Mämmi comes to mind. Quite thin body for this ABV, hides alcohol completely. Excellent brew, really enjoyable.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle at home, 330 ml. Thanks to Nisse666! Poured into a snifter, ABV 7.9%
Deep red brown colour on the body, with one finger of brown head sitting on top, quite thick, with very good retention. light lacing on the glass.
Aroma of chocolate when first poured, replaced by stewed red fruits,sugar and molasses after a while.
Taste is sweet, almost cloying, but it doesn’t bother me. Again red boiled fruits, sugars, the chocolate touch is there on the finish in the form of a dark, bitter one.
Medium thick body, soft carbonation, sticky palate.
Overall quite good, at moments the sweetness seems extreme and too--much but in general was an enjoyable beer.
