From the very old notes, hence this is not a real rating, but more just a mark to myself that I have tried this at one point. Tried it when it was young and it was too sweet and too boozy even for me. Still decent brew.

LoFi (1700) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JAN 13, 2013
Bottle. Very dark brown with a light brown head leaving lacing. Aroma: roasted, fruity, a bit musty, some spices. Taste: malty, dried fruits, yeast, light spices, sweet, some milk chocolate, burnt brown sugar. Full bodied, medium high carbonation. From memory, I would say this year was my least favourite so far.
