Bottle tested blindly in the big chrismas beer sampling of 2015. Amber with off white head. Aroma is malty, wort, light spice. Taste is similar, sweet wort, bread, sugar, green beer, grassy hops with low bitterness.

Cool_Bond (2079) - KUNG_AV_OL @ Instagram, SWEDEN - DEC 11, 2014
Good taste and aroma of sweetness and some fruitiness. Minimum spice too. Delicious bitterness which fills the upper part of the mouth for a long time. Easy to drink good beer. Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.

500ml brown 2014 years vintage bottle with a ceramic swing top cap. Appearance is clear ruby red with a small beige head that when reduced left no lacing. Aroma of raisins, spices, herbs and orange peels. Flavours of raisins, spices, herbs, orange peels and toffee. Taste is light sweet and medium bitter. Palate is medium bodied, smooth texture and average carbonation. Overall a good beer, although would have liked it a bit stronger and spicier.

olsvammel (4686) - Örebro, SWEDEN - OCT 29, 2014
Sample at a Systembolaget tasting. Fruity and spicy smell. Not the purest smell. Spcy adn fruity smell but now the spices are clearer, at least cinnamon is clear.

Vignale (2713) - Malmö, SWEDEN - JAN 6, 2014
Flaska från SBs lokala sortiment. Bärnstensfägad med medelhögt skum. Tvålig doft med lätta kryddrag, banankaka, kanel, muskot. Ganska platt och tvålig, tallolja, parfym, banankaka, kryddor. Sött men torr avslutning trots lätt beska. Nja det här var inte riktigt lyckat. För en gångs skull gör Qvänum mig lite besviken.
