fiulijn (14328) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 1, 2007
Draught at Stockholm Beer Festival 2007
Dark mahogany color. This one as well has a light aroma, with roasted malt, chocolate, alcohol, very light tobacco leaves and vanilla. Good body strength, round body, with a quite sweet caramel flavor, with notes of chocolate and roasted malt; the alcohol warms the mouth more than expected. The final is well balanced with all the flavor mix, and rhubarb candies, but gets thinner than the front. Very good.

The flavor is sweet malty with notes of hard roasted malt, coffee, and chocolate, the hard roasted malt giving it a slight acidity, leading to a dry bitter finish.
