3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
0.5l bottle shared with The Tasting Crew. This is a clear nutty-brown one with a medium sized off-white top. It smells light peppery-spicy. Some cardboard, sweet caramel and yeast hints. Also traces of chocolate paper. It’s average carbonated and it has a thin watery mouthfeel. Hmm.. More cardboard in the taste. Lot’s of thin watery chocolate paper, some dusty hay, chestnuts and some light burned caramel. Quite a spicy peppery aftertaste on this puppy. Not a great or memorable beer imo, but it’s more than enough to call drinkable. 05.01.2012

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sample at SMÖF 2011. It poured a clear dark brown liquid. Smell and taste of dark malts and chocolate. Nice and easy to drink, but I got a feeling I would grow tired if I had a full 50 cl glas.
