Bottle from Systembolaget. Hazy amber, medium head. Toffee aroma with hints of fruit. The nutty toffee flavours are balanced by some hop bitterness. Quite nice.

Mad_Ferret (639) - SWEDEN - OCT 25, 2010
Bottle from Systembolaget. Hazy leather golden colour. Big soapy off white orangy head that leaves lots of lacing. Smells of caramel, bread, some fruit, floral, malt and hops. Flavour is thick and sticky sweet. Again caramel, flowers and fruit. The alcohol is present in a nice and warming way I think. Quite nice balance between hops and malts. The carbonation give me a feeling like licking a battery. I was actually a bit suprised and must say I enjoyed this though it was rather sweet. P. S. I must say now after finishing the bottle that the booze takes over more and more in the aftertaste.
