Rödbrun öl med beige skum. Doft av malt, mörkt socker och kola. Även smaken är maltig och något för söt för mitt gillande.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours deep red wine intensive reddish, white-off cap. Pleasant spoty lacing.
One nose this bro comes fruity-berry, bit yeasty(ale-y in short), far away roasted malt, chocolate, only minus-not very intensive; a very light sour, a bit creamy, very light sweet, pleasant bitter from hops and a bit from roasted malt - all this in flavor. Indeed it has malty profile but very balanced with other parts of brew, creamy texture. O.A. - ale-y dark beer with roast and fruityness notes. Liked a lot. Must resample comparing with same style bro.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured a translucent dark beer with a coppery red tinge with a one- to two-finger light tan foamy head that diminished moderately quickly. Laced OK. Low carbonation. Aroma of sweet molasses (brown sugar), malt and roasted grain. Taste of sweet malt and brown sugar followed by a moderate hops bitterness. Light body (a bit thinner that I was expecting). Long smooth sweet finish. Quite nice.

UPDATED: JAN 1, 2013 I approached this beer with some reserve mainly because it didnt seem "cool" and without reading the bottle, i assumed it was a boring bitter. Im pleasantly surprised. It poured a reddish brown, with a frothy lingering head. The aroma was crystal malt, and sweet. The taste was nice, with more sweet crystal and before reading the description, a definite candi sugar taste. Very nice! well attenuated making it easy to drink
