UPDATED: DEC 8, 2009 Bottled (brewed at Sand Creek Brewing, WI) at Monk’s Café Wallingatan, Stockholm. Mahogany colour, rich head. Cardboard aroma. Sweet fruity and well rounded. Mildly syrupy with primitive crystal malt covered in too thin layers of floral hops to hide the severe shortcomings. Light resiny bitterness. Pointless wishy-washy pseudo-micro showcasing only cardbaord and resin.

Can shared by alexsdad06. Poured clear brown color with an average frothy off-white head that was mostly lasting with good lacing. Solid balanced aroma. Medium body with smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium toasted sweet flavor with a medium smooth sweet finish of moderate duration. Solid brew.

A: This beer pours a solid, dark amber color with a finger of off white head. S: Starts off with a fairly strong nutty note. There’s a bit of citrus peel and a mild grapefruit aroma that seems kind of strange, but it works. Plenty of toast, mild roast, and lots of bready malts. T: A more mild flavor than I was expecting. There is a lot of bread some toast and plenty of floral and earthy hops. Just a hint of citrus to go with the mild nutty malt note and molasses. A light bitterness on the back end. M: The body is medium with a medium level of carbonation. O: Drinkable, but it didn’t really blow me away. A decent beer.
