Hits you with hazelnuts from the start with toasted tones that follow. Fades a bit too quickly, but all in all a good beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

rarbring (2142) - Linköping, SWEDEN - DEC 5, 2012
Aroma: The smell is sweet and smoky, like a smoked sausage, some spices and chocolate.
Appearance: The beer is dark amber with hints of copper, the head is off-white, very high and fluffy, but settling slowly and leaves good lacing. Some curtains.
Taste: Upfront intensely sweet, brown sugar and dark bread, sweet dried fruits, then we have bitter burned notes. Roasted coffee and a dry spiciness.
Palate: Medium low carbonation, small bubbles, a thick smooth feeling, a huge body, and a dry finish.
Overall: The sweetness and thickness is almost a notch too much. But as an after-dinner-by-the-fireplace beer it is very suitable.
Note: Bottle 330 ml. Reviewed 2010-12-14.

Many flavors competing for attention. Buckling, smoke, dried fruit and a lot of sweetness. Full-bodied and warming a chilly december.

A dark amber beer with a small brown head. Aroma is mostly malt and caramel. Taste has sweet caramel malt, bitterness and some dry smoke at the end. Quite thin, mouth feel is round. Finish is dry and short. Nice smoked bock but some more smoke wouldn’t hurt.

Pours a clear and copper beer with an offwhite head. The aroma is malt, caramel, spices and some smoke. The flavor follows the nose with additional cinnamon and cloves. The palate is sweetness. Overall a beer below average.

Det här var en kul upplevelse mycket mer skoj och komplex än vad jag hade väntat mig. Smaken är maltig och jästig med en väldigt fin och försiktigt rökig ton som avslutar smaken. En juste öl med bra balans och en okej kropp. Slutsats: jomen, det här var ju kul!
