330ml bottle along with the IKEA Ol Ljus lager bought during a weekly sale at local IKEA store.Clear dark reddish brown colour; Minimal head and off-white foam which disappears in less than 20 seconds; No lacing and okay carbonation; strong smell of dark malt and cheap soy sauce; Light body and very watery palate, with taste of coffee sludge, faint malt and straw. Light but evident hop bitterness with lingers with dry after taste.

Comments: After the terrible experience I had with IKEA’s Ol Ljus lager, the expectation with this one has to be lowered. Turns out it was just as bad but in an entirely different manner. Its smell is a poor-man Mackeson XXX gone rotten, and if you can get pass that, its artificial and bad coffee taste will post a challenge to many beer tasters. Adding the non-head and watery body, this combination just doesn’t add up. Stay away.

Ahorn strop, cherries and lots of malt aroma. Dark Brown, red colour and a white small head. Ahorn flavour without a good bitter in the beginning. A bit watery though. But for an Ikea beer... Well lets say its not bad!

Flesje van de ikea, wat mij meteen opviel is dat hij, net zoals de blonde variant. 4.7% is, terwijl het een donker biertje is, die zijn meestal wat hoger in het alcohol percentage. De geur is licht fruitig maar niet heel veel uit te halen. De smaak is wel beter als de blonde, maar mist toch behoorlijk wat diepgang en body wat je bij een donker biertje verwacht

Bottle shared. Pours cola brown with a tan head. Aroma of malt, caramel, brown sugar and a little overripe dark fruit. Flavor is light moderate sweet and over light bitter. Light bodied with moderate carbonation. Nothing outstanding but I really enjoy it.
