Butelka 0,33l kolor bursztynowy, piana średnia, szybko opada. Aromat karmelowy, przyprawy korzenne ale wodniste. Smak raczej wodnisty, wytrawny, trochę czekolady. Różnorodnośc aromatu i smaku ale zbyt wodniste.

Taste from a friend (tap) @ Pikkulintu. Pours clear deep amber with a low head. Aroma is sweet fruity malts. Flavor is malts with plenty of bitter hops. Not bad, but not my cup of tea.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
The foam is somewhat flimsy, but still present. It has a delicious aroma of fruit and malt. The flavor is very sweet caramel malt but soon acquires a fruity taste of a little raisin before anything significant hop bitterness brings me to a lengthy final.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
330ml bottle from Systembolaget. Clear, dark amber, fluffy off-white head. Pleasant aroma, caramel, nuts, bread, malt. Medium body, medium carbonated, smooth mouth feel. Taste: Some roasted taste like malt, bread, hay going against the sweeter taste of caramel, toffee, dark syrup, and it works great! Nice balance and very drinkable!
