3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, bought @ Systembolaget, Hyltebruk.
Pours nice chestnut brown with a medium, creamy, beige head. Long duration. Aroma is mild smoky, some roasted malts, light dark coffee and a hint of chocolate. Medium carbonation, dry and nice light creamy palate. Flavour is quite ashy, roasted malts, dark chocolate, a slight metallic edge. Long, lingering, roasted malty bitter finish. Fine, even if the ashiness is a tad overwhelming at first.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours clear red brown with a light brown head.
Prominent brown rock sugar aroma. Sweet and bitter tasting and a long finish. Light to medium bodied, dryish texture, a pleasant astringent feeling in the finish re-awakening the initial tastes. This was good!
