Utvändigt ser den ut att vara en nära kusin till perfektion. Det är den inte (givet att den inte är en _för_ nära kusin och följaktligen har baktänt i inavel). Allt som glimmar av procentstyrka är inte guld. Sigtuna Equilibrium får associationskedjorna att rassla som en tuggummiautomat (lukten är misstänkt lik Jenka) och av den sötsliskiga smaken att döma har Haribo köpt annonsplats i receptet. Fast lite smolk har aldrig hindrat mig från att tömma en glädjebägare. Med en 9,3-procentare riktad mot strupen är det lönlöst att göra motstånd.

mabel (8640) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 31, 2012
[4951-20121116] 330mL bottle. Spiced smokey roasted malt aroma. Slightly hazy, dark red cola body with a quick foamy off-white head. Rough wood and toasted light nut notes in the flavour. Medium-full body. Good, I like the smoked characteristics. (6/3/7/3/13) 3.2

Overheard: "’Dirty Ester’ would be a great name for a wheat beer."

Deep reddish brown colour. Small head. Aroma is sour peat, dark chocolate and sweet, over ripe fruit. Sticky sweet mouthfeel. Flavour is more sour peat, plums, smoke and a hint of raspberries. Warming, alcohol bitter finish. Pretty good.

Ktwse (4094) - Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 8, 2012
Pours a deep mahogany brown with barely any head. Aroma of malt, nuts, butterscotch with hints of smoke and soy. Taste is very boozy with a distinct sweetness and just a hint of bitterness early on. Finish is port like and boozy. Somewhat light body for the ABV with low carbonation.

jercraigs (9872) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 26, 2012
2012-11-16. Very dark body with a small tan head. 3+ Healthy amount of smokey character, lightly peaty? 6+ Flavour is similar, sweet malty core, smokey peaty overtones. 6+ Smooth medium bodied palate, very lightly carbonated. 3+ Solid take on the style but more smokey than I would like.

"Is it topless?"
"That’s why I can’t see it."
