omhper (19972) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - DEC 24, 2011
Bottled. Clear nut brown, small head. Wild strawberries and caramel. Mid sweet with medium-full body and rounded mouthfeel. Caramel and spicy hops, quite bitter finish. Pretty good, relaxed strong ale with some depth. Comes across a bit ordinary, considering the high price and very fancy packaging.
