Bottom-fermented, spiced (cinnamon & cocoa beans) and brewed with a portion of speciality grains (unmalted rye, malted oats).

Small differences between 2012 and 2013, but can for most parts be considered the same beer/recipe.

Vignale (2103) - 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.

SirLimpsalot (2249) - SWEDEN - DEC 17, 2013
@Gyllenbock: ingen större smak eller doft. Lite för diskret. Mycket kolsyra, små malttoner. Ingen höjdare. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

oh6gdx (20602) - Vasa, FINLAND - APR 12, 2013
Bottled (thanks to omhper or rlgk, can’t rememer whom of these heroes I got this from). Amber colour, small beige head. Aroma is bananas, chocolate, some toffee and quite big on the spices. Flavour is spices, sweet malts, some rye and mild chocolate. Balanced. More a spiced vienna than a premium lager.
