3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle shared with the Danes. Pours reddish and sherry-like, a cloudy reddish caramel color. Aroma is vinous and slightly tart: sweet malts, peach, red wine, bourbon. Taste is a little hot, with notes of caramel, lemon peel, sherry-like oxidation, hazelnut, lingering booze. Interesting sherry notes but not super into this.

1.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
Where: NK Bar, Stockholm.
Appearance: Hazy dark amber colour with a small beige head.
Aroma: Apricot, caramel, some alcohol.
Body: Full body, low carbonation.
Flavour: Sticky, fruit, alcohol.
Comment: Aroma is nice, flavour is just wrong. Had to get a few other opinions on it, but it wasn’t infected or miss-brewed. Just too much hops in a beer that shouldn’t have it.
