Garlic_of_Doom (448) - SWEDEN - JUN 1, 2012
UPDATED: MAR 28, 2013 Bottle from Systembolaget, 2010 vintage, 10%. Pours hazy amber with a 2 finger brownish head. A lot of carbonation the first minutes. Lots of raisins and figs, burned sugar in aroma. Bitter taste at first, then sweet and then a bit bitter in the aftertaste. Raisins, bread, bitter citrus, sherry notes, warm alcohol. Really nice!

Dark brown color with medium to low darkish head. The aroma is clearly caramel and raisins. The taste is in line with the aroma. Quite sweet too, completely lacking any bitterness. Not really my kind of beer.

panacea (65) - Mölndal, SWEDEN - JUN 27, 2014
2012 vintage. Nose is almost nothing. Maybe some dried fruit sweetness but very subtle. Taste is lots of dried fruit, sweetness and some booze. Body is perfect for the style. Some nose and this beer would be perect.
