oh6gdx (20299) - Vasa, FINLAND - OCT 3, 2006
Bottled. Dark brown colour, not much head. Aroma is hops and quite hayish. Some hints of roasted malts with black chocolate. Flavour is quite the same, but the roasted malts come in the strongest. The aftertaste is citrus fruity and also roasted malts. Wellbalanced.

omhper (19327) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - SEP 29, 2006
[Bottled at Stockholm Beer Festival] Very dark brown, small head. Roasty coffee aroma. Light bodied with clean mouthfeel. Centered around the roasty malt, it’s fragile intriguing malt flavours are really something extra. The hard mouthfeel distracts, and prevents it from becoming world class.
