3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear dark copper colour. Big malty, caramelly nose with suggestions of toffee. Super smooth mouthfeel, with quite a lot of caramelly maltiness and a dash of chocolate. The finish is light light roasty and very dry. Very well crafted beer, yet a bit subdued.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: APR 4, 2009 (Bottled) Clear, dark ruby brown with a medium, tanned head. Nutty-woody-aromatic citrusy-hoppy aroma with a hint of toffee. Quite strongly aromatic-hoppy flavor with some dull ashiness in the middle, and a smooth, flowery-aromatic finish. Medium-bodied, slightly foamy-carbonated palate. A pleasantly hoppy and balanced easter brew, but the ashiness reduces drinkability.

Bottled. Clear dark reddish brown, firm rocky head. Flowery nose. Plenty of caramel. The mouthfeel is very clean, and the body firm. Very dry and really hoppy. The finish is resiny and very bitter.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark brown, medium head with good lacing. First impresion is loads of flowery hops. That developes into a more sweet maltiness with some tannies and coffee notes.Full bodied with some coffee like bitterness for finish. Unusual Swedish easter beer. Reminds me of an English strong ale from a micro wanting to be American. Somewhat unbalanced though. Needs a bit more sweetness. Smother as a real ale, I would like to hope :-)

Clear amber, medium sized beige head. Not very strong but pretty good aroma of orange-peels, peaches, nuts, grass and toffee. Quite hoppy flavour of grass and orange-peels with sweetnes from toffee and chocolate. Orangey finish, notes of chocolate. Medium bodied. Acceptable easter offering.
