2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: AUG 9, 2012 On tap at Horse and Hound in Linköping. It poured a very cloudy brown liquid with a small pale brown head. Fruity smell with some yeast aromas. Similar taste with a light sourness and a boozey aftertaste. Did I get the bottom of the barrel? Felt wrong when I drank it and judging from the comments it doesn’t add up. Re-rated this after a second tasting at a different pub. A completely different experience. Taste and smell of carmamel malts, flowers and a fairly sharp bitterness. Felt very brittish but with strong ABV. Allot better then the bottom of the barrel serving I got last time.

No beer impressed. The aroma is decent but the taste is like an ice cream. The aftertaste is not excessive good either. Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.

Ett välbalanserat öl som med sitt fintrådiga smakmönster kittlar på precis de rätta ställena. Fast lite mer riv och klös hade inte skadat. Som det är nu färgas upplevelsen lika mycket av de tjugo procent som fattas ölet som av de åttio procent som det faktiskt går att uttala sig om. Fantomsmärtan efter den kapade potentialen lurar bakom varje klunk.

33 cl bottle from order by bottle selection at Systembolaget. Marked with 4.5% ABV. Bar codce is damaged or done in a bad way, no numbers and messed up enough so my bar code scanner can’t read it.
Bottled on September 2012, apparently BB at least before March 2013. I got the bottle very recently though, so I hope their BB last longer than 6 months.
Sampled on March 15, 2013.
A slight bit hazy copper color, tan head that dies sort of fast but leaves lacings. Hints of cocoa and chocolates at first, then comes a strong sensation of metallic notes in the scent, mixed with lactic, grainy and some phenole tones. Sweet, a bit metallic, roasted, phenoles, floral taste, all over the place. Ends in a dry roasted and grainy sort of bitter thing. Also some phenoles mixed in with the dry bitter aftertaste.
In a way it taste like an ale from a not very experienced homebrewer, who haven’t really thought about the malt and hops compostition, balance, or checked fermenting temperatures. Very odd, not very drinkable I’m afraid. Nothing really wrong with it, just poorly executed I guess.
Smooth soft mouthfeel, medium to the dry and a bit harsh side bitterness. The Mouthfeel and in a way the color of the beer and head is what is best with this beer, if my bottle is representative of how the beer is supposed to be, I do not want to drink it again. I’ve had much much much better beers from this brewery in the past.
