3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at Reading 2006 (Sunday) - thanks Duff. Dark, almost black with ruby hues when held to light. The mosty malty aroma is masked by lots of carbon dioxide coming off it. To taste this is sweet caramel and malt with restrained fruit character. A beer that is extremely easy to drink.

A nice dark lager, with lots of koffee bitternes and sweety dark chocolate. A good dark lager, I like it!

I understand where this beer gets its name from. It is absolutely divine. The scent is like floating in small clouds. The taste is like from another planet. The aftertaste is left for a while and tastes wonderful. I can not say any negative things about this beer. But buying this today. You will not regret you!

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle, Oliver Twist, Stockholm, Sweden. Rudy brown colored beer with a small creamy head that doesn’t last well. Nothing to speak of in the dull nose. Faint smells. Flavor is not flawed, but again very dull and doesn’t provide much to describe. Little mouthfeel. A barely drinkable beer.

UPDATED: JUN 10, 2008 Bottle. Deep brown color with a beige head. Aroma of roasted/burned malt, chocolate, toffee, and coffee. Tastes of roasted and sweet malt, coffee, chocolate, caramel and a bitter finish. Creamy mouthfeel. A bit similar to a stout/porter.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sample at Indy tasting Dick’s BBQ 3/31/06 - thanks MrWalker - Aroma is roasted dark malts and smoke. Pours cloudy dark brown with small head and good lacing. Flavor is roasted dark malts, chocolate, earthy, and smokey. Palate is sticky. Tasty brew. I may have to dig into the style a bit more.
