Flaska på örebro ölcafe. Grumlig brun vätska med beige skum. Knäckig blöt och fatig doft. Smaken är härligt sockersöt med kraftigt rund fatkaraktär och knäck. Mycket trevlig

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at home from brewdog online
Pours opaque mid amber brown with fluffy tan head. Rich citrus peel and toffee apples on nose, full bodied, sweet but not cloyingly so as balanced by fruity citrus hops and good level of carbonation. A bit heeavy in the mouth but perhaps lacking the expected yeast character, all in alll a good sipper though.

Bottled, BB date stuck beneath a sticker on the cap, but it was bought somewhere sept 2013, large sample. Clear copper color, medium off-white head. Aroma of loads of biscuity malt, caramel, raisin, but also some fruity notes like orange and grapefruit. Hint of fusel alcohol, not that much spicy notes. Quite sweet in taste, slight bitter, some alcohol. Sirupy. Like a fusion between an american barley wine and a belgian quadrupel. Lots of sugary sweetness, but a great sipper.

Flavors are sweet, bitter, raisiny, lots of alcohol, a bit flabby (unbalanced might be another word), honey. Very sweet and very viscous.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Unclear brown with a thick beige good lacing head. Surprisingly hoppy smell and also quite yeasty. Aroma is electrical fire phenolic and roasted with caramel, nuts, brown sugar and herbal EKG like hops. Strange taste. The starts off sweet then some roasted bitterness comes forward which is then overpowered by sweetness lasting into the finish. Medium/heavy sweet and medium bitter. Full body, oily/creamy texture, soft carbonation. A bit confusing, but not unpleasant.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Intenso color ambra lievemente nebuloso con un soffice cappello di fragile schiuma beige chiaro. Bouquet piacevolissimo con sentori di caramello e frutta fresca; gusto dolce e fruttato con note di toffee, zucchero caramellato e un retrogusto amarognolo discretamente persistente e luppolato. Corpo medio, effervescenza debole, struttura setoso-sciropposa. Buona anche se molto dolce, perché nel finale è piuttosto asciutta e non incolla il palato.
