Aroma is moderately malty (roasted/burnt grain, coffee, bitter chocolate), with notes of tar.
Flavor is moderately sweet, moderately acidic, lightly to moderately bitter.
Finish is lightly sweet, moderately acidic, moderately bitter.
Medium body, watery/creamy texture, lively carbonation, lightly to moderately astringent.
Another sour (in an unpleasant way) porter/stout, sadly, and another miss from Slottskallans. Not a bad aroma, but simple.
