Medium beige head. Clear deep dark red body, pretty much like
Coke. Earthy fruity spicy aroma with bubblegum notes.
Sweet-dryish earthy dried fruit taste with bubblegum and spice
notes. Full-bodied. Sharpish, fairly hot mouthfeel. Dryish
earthy licorice and spice aftertaste with roasty dried fruit
notes. Nice, drinkable, perhaps a bit strong and dense. (0.5l

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On bottle at Beer 13 festival in Oslo 19/04/13. Pours a dark colour, almost black with a tan head. Aroma of strong licorice and tobacco, together with a quite sweet smell. Flavour is much licorice, a bit too much for me, notes of tobacco, candysugar, leaves and some leather. A bit bitterness in the finish. Medium body with low carbonation. Overall, this was a bit too much licorice for me, but it’s a good beer in small portions imo. Interesenting to try though!

Stockholm Beer 2012: Mycket lenare än den första versionen. Stor trocadero-ton och inte alls lika god som ettan. Den stora söta tjäran och de kompleksa tonerna är helt borta.
