Svesse (6901) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - APR 1, 2006
(Bottled) Amber colour with creamy, disappearing head. Malty, roasted nose with dark rye bread, toffee, caramel and a light whif of smoke. Malty taste with the same aromas, maybe some chocolate and dried fruit in there as well. Mildly hoppy and chocolatey finish. Nice and very drinkable.

larsniclas (6123) - Billdal, SWEDEN - MAY 4, 2003
Red body with a lot of hoparoma and flavour. Really bitter! Touch of dirt, a beer with an attitude.

gyllenbock (5796) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAR 14, 2013
Bottle from Systembolaget, e-order in February 2013. Clear dark copper with a medium, creamy white head. Aroma and taste of malt, chocolate, light roasted, dried fruit and nuts. Soft and easy to drink. I kind of liked this relaxed beer.

Sigmund (5726) - Tau, NORWAY - JUL 7, 2003
UPDATED: OCT 4, 2006 (500 ml bottle, as Slottskällans Wien). Beautiful dark reddish brown colour, low head. Interesting strong aroma, initially it’s overwhelming horse stable / fresh horse droppings(!), later the caramel, molasses and malts come through. Malty sweetness is well balanced by the hops, pleasant mellow aftertaste. I’ll leave it to the "style police" to discuss if this is Vienna or Munich dunkel - IMO the Swedes have done a reasonably good job with this beer.

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUL 11, 2002
Well, i had the old one named Munich, and the new one named Wien. Well i thought the Munich was pretty ordinary, also had a burnt ash flavour that made me want to stop drinking it, however the one i had under the new name (wien), tasted a bit better (but maybe i was dreaming), seemed to have a hoppier and more bearable, this score is an average of the two.
