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.

JanLaursen (3227) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - APR 22, 2013
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.

SlackerMads (1700) - Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 22, 2013
Bottle. Dark brown close to black with a good lasting and lacing beige head. Aroma is tropical and pine hops up front, chocolate, caramel, roasted malt. Taste is medium sweet and bitter. Medium body, oily texture, soft carbonation. Light dry and bitter finish.

Papsoe (25083) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - APR 22, 2013
Bottle 33 cl. Courtesy of joergen. Pours an opaque black with a thick and creamy beige head leaving some lacework. Very interesing hop aroma, spicy and tropical. Solid body, quite some roast and dark fruits, but the tropical hop notes dominate. Has a little balancing sweetness - yet ends roasty bitter. Very enjoyable. 220413

larsga (6309) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 20, 2013
Huge dark brown head. Hazy opaque black body. Wooden dusty tropical fruit aroma with roasty pineapple notes. Dry-sweet dusty roasty wooden taste with peppery tropical fruit notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, yet hot mouthfeel. Dryish peppery minty roasty aftertaste with tropical fruit and resin notes. Wow. Incredibly vivid, clear, clean, complex, balanced, and harmonic. A new kind of black IPA for me, and very interesting. (0.33l bottle, Systembolaget, Charlottenberg.)

stefannilssons (1491) - SWEDEN - APR 14, 2013
Det här var en positiv överaskning, jag trodde i.o.f.s. att den skulle vara bra men inte såhär bra. Doften är ljuvlig med mycket fruktiga men även några rostade toner, och smaken följer upp på ett bra sätt med mycket rostade toner och fruktiga toner. Slutsats; underbar och komplex sak.

balconydoor (1) - Gothenburg, SWEDEN - APR 12, 2013 does not count
A very dark brown colour with a creamy brownish-tan head. Smell is dominated by caramel, and fresh darker fruits. In the mouth a bitter, but still malty ale with roasted, fruity taste. A pleasant beer to sip on during a relaxing evening.

Joakgust (953) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - APR 7, 2013
Bottle, 33cl - Opaque black beer with a large beige brown head. Aroma is malty with notes of honey, citrus, licorice and caramel. Flavor is malty with notes of roasted caramel, honey, licorice, salmiak and some citrusy hops. Very special beer with too much roasted notes which dominates haevily.

Vignale (2175) - Malmö, SWEDEN - APR 7, 2013
Flaska från SB. Mörkbrun med beige hållbart skum. Kombination av humle- och rostad maltdoft, mjölkchoklad, örtig frisk humle och viss alkohol. Även i smakenbilden slåss humlen och malten om uppmärksamheten. Kombinationen funkar mycket bra och det är ett tufft smakrikt öl. Torrt, måttlig beska, stram torr choklad och rejäla humledoser med massor av örter med anis i spetsen. Riktigt gott.

Senap (384) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - APR 6, 2013
Fantastiskt mörk med hållbart skum. Mjölkig och drag av stout,en en stor fruktighet. En öl att sippa, inte att häva. Som vanlig leverera Sigtuna.
