Pours a dark reddish brown colour with a minimal white head on the edges. A bit lacy. Aroma of fruits, toffee and slightly toasted malts. Flavour of caramel malts, oak, syrup and dried fruits. Medium bodied, slick/oily mouthfeel. Bit watery and thin, but alcohol is very well hidden here.

olsvammel (3548) - Örebro, SWEDEN - OCT 13, 2010
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.
