The scent is thin but what a wonderful flavor. It’s like getting a spoonful of sweet cocoa in the mouth. The aftertaste is never ending. A wonderful beer that you just have to taste it.

big thanks to deflagro for this rarity! beautiful bottle, ceramic but with a satin finish instead of matte. nice pour, dark brown with a good sized brown head, nice retention. nice bit of cocoa on he nose, but its much more present in the flavor. Smooth, nice body and palate, not too bitter on the finish, very sessionable. not huge or crazy, but a solid importer from a new brewery, i like!

Bottle from Systembolaget.
Has an oily black texture in the glass with a minimal brown head. When you smell it you immediately feel the cocoa and then som pleasant toffee and grass. The taste is also dominated by cocoa without becoming either too bitter or too sweet, perfect balance. However, it lacks in mouthfeel, it doesn’t quite feel as heavy as the taste suggest. All in all though, this is a fantastic brew for a brewery’s first beer.

Difficult to rate since it has changed so much over the years. Has tasted everything from dark roasted malts to chocolate milk. However, it has really improved lately, and has a nice sweet chocolate flavor to it.
