3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
03-DEC-2010, bottle @Ulkløbben @Henrik, from Systembolaget "Boräs".
Dark dark brown.
Roasted, brown ale like nose.
Taste is fine roasted as well, but the brew turns very thin. For a schwartzbier it is fine. I guess I just hoped for a bit more.
Still fine brew.
