Lots of sweet malt, brown sugar, almost syrupy. But the hops add some aromatic bitterness, which makes this a very good beer indeed.

I think this beer has been heavily underrated so far! It sure has got almost everything you could possibly ask for. A very nice almost candy like toffee aroma. Huge off-white head. A full-bodied palate with lots of toffee, roasted malt, hazelnuts. A well-balanced finish with plenty of bitter hops to compensate for the sweet ingredients. Oh, I liked it a lot - and I will never share it with anyone. Not even my best friend!

(Bottle 70 cL) from sk8viking. Poured an almost clear caramel color with a solid layer of rather well-retained off-white head. Aroma was deeply malted with caramel and hazelnut dominant... I also found some floral hops, white bread, and what I’m guessing is a funky yeast that I cannot place. Flavor had a very nice blend of caramel malts, lighter fruit, noble hops, and a nice spice bouquet. Medium-bodied. Smooth and creamy across the palate, with sweet malts and spices on the finish. Well-balanced and very pleasant brew!

(Bottle 70 cl) Chestnut brown, slightly hazy with an impressive, rocky head. Malty, caramelish notes with a quite distinct bitterness. A nice one indeed. 121203

Storm (2684) - Amager, DENMARK - JUL 7, 2005
75 cl Bottle. Red-brown colour with a nice fast head. Very malty and caramel aroma. And also very malty taste and a lot af caramel in aftertaste, so some sweetness afterall, a typical Svaneke beer. But its sade that there come additives in the beer(Colour E150).

pivo (2667) - GERMANY - JUN 19, 2005
Caramel and toast nose, hazy auburn color, low tight biege head. Full sweet malt body, toffee, some chocolate too. Hazelnut in the middle. Quick tinge of a hop bitter towards the end. More sweet than bitter but quite good.

Wowzer - thank you Ivan for this nice treat! Nice orange nealry red color. Fizzy carbonation. Small head on top. An intense almond nose with nice notes of cherry. Great nutty - mmhhh more like hazelnut, caramel taste with some light bitter chocolate notes. Nice bitter kick at the end but quite short.

Red colour with a small beige head. Sweet malty aroma with notes of grain and fruit. Malty flavour with a well balanced bitterness. Nice, but a typical beer from Svaneke Bryghus.
