Rich sound and light dark beer. Malty but suitable for Christmas food. Does not smell so much. Decent long finish. As I said, it is good for Christmas food. Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Sample at a Systembolaget tasting. Light bready smell with some boozy fumes with a weird skunky and sweaty finish. The taste is better, bready with some roasted notes. Not a beer to my liking.

Beautiful beer. Caramel, malt, chocolate, and spice aroma. Taste of syrup, dark caramel, and orange. Very fizzy texture in the head, and mostly sweet aftertaste.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: NOV 8, 2014 500ml bottle, pours an opaque nearly black dark mahogany, with a medium sized tan head that reduced quickly leaving no lacing. Aroma and flavour of dark maple syrup, dark bread, caramel and a hint of prunes, raisins and spices. Taste is light-medium sweet and medium bitter. Palate is medium bodied, oily texture and average carbonation. Overall not bad, but it’s a little too mild and not spicy enough for a Christmas brew.
