bottle - Pours dark amber with small suspended yeast particles and a one finger, lasting light tan head. The aroma includes caramel and a touch of dark fruit. It’s sweet with caramel and a nice smoky character. Quite tasty.

Inte min favorit typ. Hel del sötma, viss om än lite rökighet. Högt fint skum som försvinner snabbt, aningen spretig i smaken. OK kropp

Nja, det här var inte helt okej. Smaken är obalanserad och nästan fadd med toner av rostad malt, äpple och olja. Kroppen är helt okej men här är något som jag inte riktigt gillar och som jag inte heller kan sätta fingret på.

Tap in Rattle n Hum. Finally a beer that ratebeer deigns to call a Scotch Ale - nothing in Scotland appears Scottish or even Scotch enough to qualify as a true Sweaty! Deep brown in colour, tiny foam. Sweet aroma, toffee, fudge, slight smell of a mash! Soft malty palate, hints of booze coming through. Just enough bitterness to balance it out. Maybe not my favourite type of beer but well executed.

Bomber bought @ Systembolaget. Slow gusher. Pours dark brown with a rather big frothy brownish beige head that slowly dissipates while leaving a small trace on the glass. Smell is malty and fruity with old dry dark bread, raisin bran, caramelized apples, oatmeal, biscuits, smoke and hay. Taste is sweet, bitter, malty and tiny fruity with toasted cereal, sweet dark bread, oatmeal, biscuits, caramel, red apples, baked pears, moist soil, red berries, liquorice root, caraway, smoke, wood and hay. Mouthfeel is soft, creamy, round and medium to full bodied. Finish is tiny sweet, bitter, malty and tiny fruity with biscuits, caramelized apples, alcohol, oatmeal, hay, wood, red berries, smoke and hints of toffee. Was rather turned off by the old bread smell but taste and mouthfeel really makes up for it.

Bottle from systembolaget, enjoyed at home. Pours deep brown with a nice withe head that dissapear quickly. Smells malty with a small hint of smoke. Tastes a bit sweet,light caramel,should have more smoke to it. All over nothing special for me. To little of everything.

Slightly smoky and malty aroma. Deep caramel and toasted malts flavors. Light body for the style of beer.
