Tested august 2008.
Thick brown foam that stays. Reddish colour.
Aroma of madeira wine, caramell malt and a little acidity.
THe taste is very smooth and reminds you of a barly wine but lighter body and more drinkabillity. Unfortunantly this was the second last botle.

Brought this one back to Australia to enjoy mid-winter, and its loads better than when was released, with the maltiness becoming more rounded and soft. Pours clear dark brown/amber, with a creamy small tan head. Great aroma, heaps of toasted malts and toffee sweetness, lighter undertones of cinnamon, earth, plummy esters. Its just great really. Full body, sweet but not cloying, huge malt profile... brown sugar, toffee, caramel, chocolate, custard... this stuff is amazing. Soft hop bitterness is there but not providing much flavour. Finish give the impression that you just took a huge mouthful of a home-made plum pudding with brandy custard about 2 minutes prior. Perhaps some liquorice too. Amazing stuff.

Clear deep amber with reddish notes and a fine light, amber head. Hops, spice, malt, caramel and toasted. Fine balance between hoppy bitterness and sweetness from malt!

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
500ml bottle from the Systembolaget.
Poured a ruddy red colour with soapy head that dissapated quickly - leaving no trace at all, giving the appearance of lifeless, dull beer.
Aroma of sweet malt, toffee and a touch of chocolate. Initially very sweet taste, followed up by weak chocolate bitterness and a thin finish. Mouthfeel was syrupy and sticky.
Basically if you like sweet malt and caramel this beer is for you. For me it was disappointingly one-dimensional for Nils Oscar.
