Bottle. Dark reddish-brown, carbonating beer, with a large, dense, creamy beige head. Weak aroma of dried fruits, some alcohol and spices, and caramel. Round, balanced flavor with sweetness from caramel and raisins, a hint of roasted malt and spices. Nice body and a pleasant finish.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A nutbrown beer with a fine head. The aroma is sweet and fruity - like a typical ale. The flavor is very sweet and smooth with no bitterness, but hints of fruit. All in all a very plesant beer, but so sweet that I will only have one in a sitting.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draught at Oliver Twist, Stockholm. Clear deep ruby, majestic cloud-like head. Fruity nose with dried plums and lemon. Sweet and medium bodied with lots of perfumy soap and an unusual estery apricot flavour. Some soothing caramel mixes with dextrose. Drying finish with low bitterness. Despite all flavour it feels mild. Complex, but with some drawbacks.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clean brown colour, with ruby shades, creamy head and beautiful lace. Some malt aroma, too light. A lot of caramel, brown sugar, some malt, a bit of peanuts and hazelnuts; cookies; rather dry and astringent. Strong, bitter and persistent palate. Only at the end some sweetness arises.
