Deep brown pour. The aroma is kind of sweet and a little bit earthy. Some estery sort of dirty character. A little bit of smokey yeast. Sweet and softly chewy. Meh. Not really my bag. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Svesse (6717) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - SEP 25, 2014
(Bottle) Reddish brown colour with lasting, beige head. Malty, fruity nose with dark rye bread, dried fruit, treacle, chocolate, coffee, hints of smoke and a touch of rowan-berry jelly. Malty, fruity taste with notes of caramel, brown sugar, dried fruit, prunes, coffee, orange peel, dark chocolate and a finish with a balanced spicy bitterness and a touch of alcohol. Almost full body, with a certain sweetness. Tasty and quite well balanced for its strength. Very nice.

Sparf (149) - Östersund, SWEDEN - SEP 7, 2013
Söt, maltaromatisk doft med inslag av choklad och torkad frukt. Alkoholen slår igenom något. Mörkt rubinröd färg och ett snabbt försvinnande skum. Fruktig smak med en anstrykning av tjära. Tungt maltsöt med viss komplexitet samt en värmande alkohol. Toner av trä och ett lätt rökighet också. Fyllig kropp, välavvägd kolsyra och en lätt oljig viskositet. Eftersmaken är behaglig men något kort.
