Medium to mild roast flavor, not deep. I get the description thing. Mild roast flavors and somewhat watery. Lager like black ale yes. Nothing real memorable.

En flyvsk øl der er svær at holde i glasset når den varme brise suser på vinterens sidste dag.
En røget smag. En kraftfuld udgave af Rehfvindinges Skibsøl.

Mörkbrun nästan svart öl med mörkbeige skumkrona. Doft/smak: sötma, rostad malt, kaffe, choklad, karamell och viss rökighet. Mer än ok! Flaska från Systembolaget.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Copenhagen 6/12 2014. 35,5 cl bottle from Fakta. Pours very dark brown with beige head. Dissipates to thin lacing after a few minutes. Aroma is sweet with hints of chocolate and a little nut. Medium carbonation. Taste is not that intense - but rather light. Follows the nose. Mostly sweetness and roasted malts. Almost no bitterness. A little disappointing for a fan of Mr. Adams.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a dark cola-brown with tinges of deep red and purple. Has a medium khaki head that leaves nice, sticky lacing. Deep roasted chocolate and caramel in the smell, with notes of coffee. Also smoky, with a peppery spiciness, like a well-done steak or pork roast. Taste carries on the smokiness, with roasted malts bordering on burnt. A light hoppiness also makes its presence known in the back half of the swallow, along with a burnt bitterness that hits after the swallow. Also catching some sweet prunes. Medium body, creamy mouthfeel. Not bad, but not particularly well-balanced. There are a lot of flavors in there that seem to compete with one another.
