3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at the "Colin and the Vikings tasting, Goteborg". Poured a clear medium brown with no life. The aroma is sweet yeast and tropical fruit. The flavour is medium sweet with a treacle toffee caramel yeast alcoholic palate. Medium to full bodied with flat carbonation.Sweet oily mouthfeel. A little too sweet for me.

Assaggiata in bottiglia da 75cl.
Colore ambrato veramente bello. L’aroma è complesso ma a volte risulta troppo evidente l’alcool. Malto e caramello risultano i sapori più evidenti anche se si avverte la liquirizia. Piacevolmente bevibile.

Bottle shared by larsga. Cheers! Pours dark reddish brown, no head. Aroma of butterscotch, dark fruits, alcohol, brown sugars. Very sweet on the tongue, some roasty/burnt notes, burnt sugar. Mellow carbonation, feels round, fairly thick. Definitely a sipper. Pretty hot in the finish, otherwise nothing warns you of the 11%. A bit too sweet for me.
