3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Light roastiness in aroma along with some hops and a touch of nuttiness. A bit sweet, the roasty malts give way to nice minty hops.
A pleasant surprice as Nils Oscar had a string of disappointments with me.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Toasty, crisp - some nuttiness. Some notes of rye in the finish, though very subtle. This was probably the best of the 4 Nils Oscar beers we tried tonight (IPA, Imp. Stout, Bwine and this).

2.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle shared by akevitt. Pours a hazy, orange-amber body with a light brown foam head. Aroma of caramel malts, bread, and spices along with a hint of floral hops and maybe prunes. Aroma is much better than the flavor, which is pretty one-dimensional and mainly bread/caramel malts. Very watery on the palate. Finishes clean with a slight burnt malt and coffee finish.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
As always with Nils Oscar, this is a good beer. Deep colour. Distinct bitterness but definitely malt dominated. Perhaps a little too sweet for my liking, but I believe that’s a feature of the style, not an imbalance in this beer.
