3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
750 ml clear bottle poured a clear reddish brown with a lasting ivory head. Aromas of rum, vanilla, oak, light carmel and a hint of fruittiness. Palate was light bodied and smooth. Flavors of rum, vanilla, oak and light toffee with a smooth lingering vanilla finish. This is my idea of an ideal session beer.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz. bottle, pours a deep dark brown with an amber hue and a small beige head. Nose brings out English malts, dry bready caramel, and very subtle rum notes. Flavour is along the same lines, very subtle and smooth, with notes of toffee, vanilla, cocoa and bready malts -- not really much rum, but the subtleties are really nice. This is much better than I expected. Rather quite nice really.

Bottle, bought @ Systembolaget.
Pours coppery chestnut with a small, creamy and kinda fizzy off-white head. Aroma has mild dried fruits, toasted caramel, mild toffee and a mild oaky dryness. Low to medium carbonation, kinda light mouthfeel with good dryness. Flavour is quite oaky, nice character from the rum, toffee and good caramel base. Perhaps a bit of oaky astringency as well. Fine beer.
