austone (1062) - Turku; Pori, FINLAND - MAR 18, 2009
Bottled. Dark copper, fluffy beige head. Good dark nutty aroma with quite strong herbal hops and toffee, even chocolate. Flavor is more of the same, nice hops (grass & some pine), nuttiness, little wood and cocoa, nicely balanced. Lingering herbal bitterness. Really smooth silky palate, perfect for the style. A great ESB, this one makes my easter alright.

MikeKeller (933) - Kemi, FINLAND - APR 29, 2011
Bottle from Systembolaget
Clear reddish brown colour, totally vanishing white head. Piney hoppy aroma. Very malty taste for a Oppigårds ale, also hops and ash. A bit of a dissapointment. I prefer the typical fresher tasting Oppigårds’.

MrWalker (926) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAR 31, 2006
Bottle
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 :-)
