2.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Flaska från Systembolaget . Vacker mörkbrun färg. Härlig arom av nejlika och kanel men smakar mest som kall glögg.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
A strongly-spiced brown ale with almost unbearable nutmeg, allspice and potpourri. Medium body with sweet Dr Pepper / plum malt on the approach followed by a harsh herb and hop flavor, it’s like a wood oil astringency in a lengthy, bitter finish. Burnt and astringent malt graininess. That’s where the dry, perfumed potpourri wood character becomes overpowering.

4.4 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
The first two times i tried this beer, i poured it in the sink...the third time i finished it but didnt like it. This time i cant get enough of it! Smell is intense! Mostly ginger and some cardamon and cinnamon. Flavour is the same. A bit "soapy" mouthfeel, but definitiv less than the previous years. Maby they have changed it, maby it’s me that have changed.
I thinck it’s me...

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours dark brown slightly close to a black colored body with a nice soft looking lumpy foamy head that is about two fingers worth, a fair amount of lacing graces the sides of the glass but slides at a reasonable pace; the aroma has coca cola up front with a fair amount of spice involved with this on as I’m gettin’ some gingerbread and some toastiness; the taste is coca cola comes back again in full force with an added sharp roasty pininess, the aftertaste is coca cola-ish with a watery finish; its pretty easy on the palate; overall good herbed/spiced beer for the most part, might be worthy of another pour in small doses
