UPDATED: NOV 10, 2015 Bottle from a Systembolaget in Göteborg. A dark amber colour with thick off-white head. Aroma of caramel and hazelnuts. Taste is also of caramel and nuts with a strong grassy bitterness. A little too sweet for me, but still a very pleasant beer.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Systembolaget, 2012 edition.
Pours dark amber with a small head.
Lots of toffee/fudge malt in the aroma, some bitter orange,
Roasted malt, toffee, bitter hops, earthy notes, chocolate and bitter orange in the taste. Nice bitter after taste.
My thoughts goes to barley wine for some reason: If a hoppy barley wine would be 1/2 of what it regulary is, plus the roasted malt - we have Kalasjulöl!
