"Belgian-style with rye", the brewery claims. Amber-brown colour pours bright. Aroma is of cherry, earthy dark malts, marzipan. Dryish but malty palate across which flows light toffee notes.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled @ NynäshamnBurgundy coloured. Clear. Thin off white lasting head. Chocolate, spices (cloves, ginger, cinnamon) and alcahol in the aroma. Flavour is spicy as well (the christmas spices mentioned before), has cocoa notes and is quite alcaholic. Is medium bodied and has a somewhat grassy aftertaste. Dies rather quickly on the palate.

Bottle, thanks to Per. Ruby red chestnut, thin white head low condition. Good complex and evolving aromas starting with roast barley and raspberries, becoming woody and vinous and finally figs and some low smokiness. Full and sweet in the mouth with chocolate powder and more light smokiness and a touch of alcohol. Lingering yeasty dubbel notes in the finish, along with more chocolate and a final alcoholic kick.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
clear reddish in colour, almost no foam, aroma of banana and pepper, vinous, sweet and full-bodied, lot of carbonation, decent bitterness, the finish is dry, malty and fruity, a little bit bubblegum-like - this beer should improve with aging - thx Per !

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Amber color. Quite simple aroma; the flavor is just a bit more interesting, with a hidden roasted malt touch, some caramel and a ending very light liquorice note. Quite disappointing for Nils Oscar.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Nut brown with a low head. Peculiar aroma of raspberries. Sweetish malt flavour with more raspberries and alcohol, maybe some yeast as well. Still a bit raw and unpolished but will improve with age.
