fiulijn (13533) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 1, 2007
UPDATED: APR 5, 2009 2009-03-10, bottle at Nya Tröls, Malmö, 7-4-7-3-14=35
Hazy dark amber color; nice head. Medium aroma, sweet caramel, nutty. Good sweet caramel and malt flavor, correct bitterness. Side to side, less complex than the Munken.

2007-09-22, draught at Stockholm Beer Festival 2007, 7-5-8-4-16=40
Cloudy amber color; thin creamy head. Delicate malt aroma, lightly cheesy. Full bodied, very good malt flavor, immediately the alcohol fires up the guns, and the bitterness comes in to balance it, with a lot of oils; toffee, parmesan cheese too come to mind. Extremely powerful. Excellent.
