3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draught at Bishop’s Arms, Malmö (could this be the same as the Schwarzbier?)
Mahogany color, with small creamy head. Nice aroma of malt, caramel, Ale yeast (quite spicy, peppery, Swedish), lightly fruity hops. Caramel flavor, dark, quite dry, with chocolate (dry as well), a bit dusty, and strong ending bitterness, with more roasted malts, a bit ashy. Too much... Swedish (uh?).
