I think I’ll faint. After the first sip, I thought I was in heaven. Smells good and a strong scent, tastes great and some dryness but are disappearing fast. The aftertaste is left long, long time. I think that it’s just Stenkvista Stout from Eskilstuna Ölkultur that is better. I drank a 2011 last year and it was absolutely wonderful. Now I just enjoy. Buy this now!

Frothmeister (559) - Ontario, CANADA - MAR 4, 2014
330ml bottle. Pours almost black with a thin dark orange tinged mocha coloured head. Smells awesome. Molasses, burnt sugar, caramel, dried fruit, Black Panda licorice, Demerara rum, and some definite booziness. As for taste more molasses up front with dried fruit, amber rum, that leads into espresso, caramel, some good bitterness, with some light ash, and light vanilla in the finish. It’s like this beer was custom made for me. I love it!

rarbring (1371) - Linköping, SWEDEN - DEC 3, 2012
Aroma: Very much roasted malt in the smell, burnt bread, dark roasted coffee beans, dark dried sweet fruits.
Appearance: The beer is dark dark brown, a high brown head, good lacing and good curtains.
Taste: Starting very sweet, dark syrup, figs, raisins, marmalade, dark coffee, chocolate and bitter orange peel.
Palate: Little carbonation, sticky and oily, a heavy body, a very dry finish.
Overall: This year it was even better, and at lower ABV.
Note: Bottle 330 ml. (Vintage 2012) Reviewed 2012-12-03.

Hoppsan (150) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - APR 12, 2013
Wow, Sigtuna continues a logarithmic improvement curve of its brews! This is a very nicely composed "imperial" (god, I hate thate term for beers) porter, with massive and complex aroma and taste while maintaining a nice balance. This is an "advanced" beer that still tastes like beer. The roasted malts gives the brew a nice touch of coffee and bitter dark chocolate. Impressively "thin" for its 8% ABV, which means that I can enjoy the whole bottle for once...

Melker (206) - Varberg, SWEDEN - DEC 6, 2012
Riktigt mörk brun/svart. Fick ett stort och tjock brunt skum som lämnade fina rester i glaset. Doftar mjölkchoklad, russin, rostad malt, bröd. Smakar chokladigt, en del kaffe, lakrits, lätt bränd smak. Ganska torr. Gott som fan! Oljig och tjock vätska. Blev riktigt överraskad av den här. Grym bärs!
