Svesse (5875) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - APR 24, 2007
(Bottle) Dark reddish brown colour with beige, firm, slowly diminishing head. Malty nose dominated by toffee, chocolate, coffee and citrussy hops in almost perfect harmony. Malty, fruity taste with caramel, toffee, Seville orange, coffee and citrussy hops in the finish. Lots of good stuff in this one, coffee tend to take over the aroma after a while. Toffee, caramel and citrus tend to dominate the taste. But everything in perfect balance. Liquid harmony.

500 ml bottle. Thin tanned head over a clear reddish brown body. Predominant hop aroma with notes of mild coffee and roasted malts. Pleasant and mouthfilling hopbitter taste with semi-dry dark malts and roasty flavors. Dry mouthfeel, good body, and a pleasant and long lasting bitter finish. A really nice seasonal.

lagomswedish (213) - Umeå, SWEDEN - APR 1, 2007
Bottle from Systembolaget. My second Swedish Easter beer of the night, and yet another English Strong Ale. This looked better than the Jämtlands, with a nice fluffy vanilla-white head and a rich, deep ruby body. Taste-wise though it had a little less character, with a thin mouthfeel and an almost mouldy bitterness. It didn’t taste fresh and it didn’t put me in the mood for Easter.......(although having said that very little does).

Bottle at home. Pours a beautiful dark ruby colour with a good head. Aroma of chocolate and coffee. Good body with sweet taste of coffee with a more bitter finish of chocolate and a hint of licorice.
