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.)

stefannilssons (1458) - 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.

olsvammel (3030) - Örebro, SWEDEN - MAR 16, 2013
Bottle from Systembolaget. Very powerfull smell (could smell it at an arms length) with grapefruit, pine and similar hop aromas. When I got closer I sensed some citrus and dark bready malts. Similar taste, lots of hops that is backed up with some dark roasted malts. It doesn’t have much of that coffee bitterness though, it’s more of a hop bitterness. I really enjoyed this one, one of the best beers I’ve tried from Sigtuna.

Good fragrance with a very tasty flavor. This beer rolls around in your mouth as it should. The aftertaste lingers very long time. A wonderful beer this is it. This beer must only buy if you want a taste orgasm.

omhper (19309) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - MAR 16, 2013
Bottled, from Systembolaget. Near black with rich, firm beige head. Distinct aroma of pear and gooseberry, with chocolate liqueur on a distance. Mid sweet with near full body and well rounded mouthfeel. Chocolate and some caramel from the malt, lots of bear and gooseberry from the hops. Warming finish with distinct, somewhat resiny bitterness. Intense, yet balanced modern style ale.

Svart öl med cappuccinofärgat skum. Rent vidunderligt goda dofter av exotiska frukter, kaffe, lakrits, något svagt surt som från körsbär kanske. Kaffet är mer framträdande i smaken, och därtill mörk choklad, men fruktigheten finns där också. Lakritsen är distinkt. Påskens vinnare? ja, jag tror det.
