BlackHaddock (6375) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 22, 2012
This review is of two 500ml cans bought for me from IKEA in the UK, both BBD of 18 May 09, drank during a bad lager evening on 14 Mar 09. Poured into my ’La Chouffe’ tulip glass (four times). Large off-white head sat on top of a dark amber, clear body. It looked fine and the glass showed it off to its full potential. An aroma of tea with sugar was what I thought of as my nose approached the beer. Then some molasses and treacle came through. The taste was strange, the tea smell gave way to a mild coffee flavour and some toffee sweetness, I didn’t like it much. The body was weak, a bitter finish in the mouth didn’t help its cause and I was pleased they had been a free gift and I hadn’t paid for them. Promised so much at first, but sadly lacking once tasted and when compared to other dark lagers.

Bottled 0,33l. Dark red brown coloured. A creamy head. Rich malty aroma and a sweet bitter flavour. Ending in a sweet way. Thanks to Rune for the lunch invitation and the beer.

olsvammel (6194) - Örebro, SWEDEN - DEC 15, 2013
Sample at a Systembolaget tasting. Sweet and fruity smel with some dried fruit and light notes of marcipan. Mild taste with notes of wort bread. Not as bad as the other industrial beers but still not very good.
