1.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottled, from Systembolaget. .Completely black, beige head. Tarry spruce aroma. Sweetish with full body and clean mouthfeel. Massive piney shampoo-like bitterness overkills everything in its way, leaving my tastebuds as sooty ruins. Some spice and caramel, but really - the super aggressive shampoo bitterness is just extreme.
