2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 7/20
Not much scent. The taste is anyways there is quite okay. Good and decent long finish. But difficult to judge this beer. I would not Recommend it anyway.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Luktar ganska starkt, lite bränd, åt kaffe hållet men ändå inte. Besk eftersmak, lite torr. Tycker inte den håller.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Light to slightly medium bodied. Touch of cacao and coffee, though there is definitively also a hint of licorice. Well balanced. Kind to the mouth, little foam. Drinks away quickly. Nothing (that) special.

Flaske fra systembolaget. Svart farge,nesten uten skum og karbonering, smaker mørk malt og kaffe. En lettdrikkelig mørk øl men ikke noe spennende

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
I’m a sucker for dark beers and this one hit me on the sea front at El Puerto de Tazacorte. Dark and clear with a decent head and a flavour balanced between roasted malts and caramel, although hops hardly enter the equation. Doesn’t seem as if many places sell it, but always worth asking for especially considering the paucity of alternatives in its homeland.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Dark amber with an off white head - nice caramel malt aroma with hints of roasted malt aroma in the back - nice sweet caramel malt body with a low bitterness - the sweet malt lingers for a little while in the finish - this was good
