3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Systembolaget. It poured a clear dark amber liquid with a very small dirty grey-white head. Sweet flavour of candy, brandy and caramel. Semi-smooth mouthfeel, medium amount of carbonation and thick body. A bit to alcoholic for my taste. Could use some more malt and residual sweetness. Might improve over time.
