COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Ett välhumlat påsköl. Sigtuna Dark Easter Ale är en mörk, fyllig ale, med något rostade toner. Humlen, som är tillsatt i rikliga mängder, kommer från USA och Nya Zeeland. Prova gärna till påskens mer kraftiga rätter som t.ex örtkryddad lammstek. Mattias Hammenlind, Bryggmästare.

Bottle, 33 cl, courtesy of Joergen, thanx. Opaque, very dark brown with a creamy layer of beige head, good retention and lace. Nose reminds me of a black IPA with light roasted malts, faint cocoa notes and accentuated fruity, flowery hop accents. Taste follows the nose with light notes of licorice and a resiny lingering dry, bitter finish.
