4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: AUG 12, 2012 Bottled at Bittens, Härnösand. Near black, rich creamy head. Aroma of chocolate, raw licorice and black currant. Mid sweet with medium body and soft mouthfeel. Mildly tarry with spun sugar, relaxed and chocolaty. Hops seem fairly restrained compared to roasty malt. Mid bitter finsih. Really nice - probably the best debut beer from a new Swedish brewer since Närke Stormaktsporter!

Bottle from a friend. Some hops on the nose, cat pee and stomach acid, reminds me of Simcoe. Fairly mild smell, some hops with a roasted finish. I think this could be a bit old, best served before 12/12.

Aroma: Smelling of red fruits, cream and blackberry marmalade, a whiff of coffee.
Appearance: A hazy black colored beer. A high tan head with good lacing and good curtains.
Taste: Tasting sweet dark bread, marmalade and licorice.
Palate: Medium high carbonation, small bubbles, a soft texture. A small body with a slight dry finish.
