3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Aroma is very young, earth, oak, and some kind of saltish. Taste is oak, no coffee, no chocolate, but black malts, some malt bitterness and some fine hop bitterness in the end.
Good, but young.

A dissapointment. Oppigårds usually make such good beers but they didn’t have any luck with this one. Brown short head. Brown color. Much oak aroma. Tart wood taste with too much chrystall maltiness.
