2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Backlog, had this in June, 2013 when newly delivered to the swedish liquor monopoly. Bottle, pours copper clear with a minimun white foam. Aroma is butter, caramell, candy, bread, some oak. Taste is kind of weird, starting sweet and spicy, some wood and caramell, medium bitter. Body is medium, carbo is soft, very oily texture. This is not a favourite brewery, albeit this works (barely).

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Biggish offwhite head. Clear coppery body. Floral butterscotch
aroma with wooden spicy notes. Sweet-dryish papery butterscotch
taste with caramelly fruity notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, soft,
smooth mouthfeel. Dryish spicy fruity aftertaste with linoleum
and lavender notes. Interesting and unusual, but not very fresh,
and a lot of butterscotch. Still OK. (0.33l bottle, from wine
monopoly, web order.)
