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.

UPDATED: NOV 10, 2013 Beautiful crown. Fantastic chocolate, coffee, and dark caramel aroma. Taste of coffee, bread, chocolate cake, and hints of red berries, very well balanced. A fantastic ale! (Rated at best before date, which implies improvement through maturation.)

Linnet (1029) - Umeå, SWEDEN - MAY 10, 2013
Ar: roastiness, coffee, chocolate, dried dark fruits, alcohol, slightly floral, some earthy hoppiness coming through. Ap: dark almost black body, medium creamy Brown head, lacing. F: big bite, lots of coffee and roastiness, some ash, some weird note That I can’t put my finger on, alcohol, some undefined fruitiness. P: medium to thin body considering ABV, very low carbonation, with not enough body it makes it feel a little flat. T: does not leave a lasting impression.
