4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a very dark brown with garnet highlights and a 1 finger, creamy tan head. Aroma is fantastic, intense fruity earthy and floral notes, coriander, juniper, nutmeg, lots of sweet floral and fruity notes, sweet malt, a hint of burnt sugar and citrus. Flavor is equally intense and impressive, tons of spice, molasses, earth, heavy thistle and honeysuckle floral notes, dark fruit, burnt sugar, sweet, earth plant notes, a hint of sweet melon. Medium body with a creamy to oily feel throughout and light carbonation. I really thoroughly enjoyed this beer. So intense without being overpowering and so unique.

330 ml bottle at GH. Brown with a ruby tint, off white head. Aroma sweet and bready, almost like svagdricka, some malt and burnt sugar. Taste is sweet, sugary, bread, light smoke, svagdricka and mild liquorice. A bit too sweet for me

33 cl. bottle, BBE December 2022... Clear, dark amber colour with a golden tint. Thin, off-white head, that lasts throughout. Fruity aroma with plums, resins, mild chocolate, caramel malts, toast, liquorice, rather spicy. Taste is sweet. Medium body with a creamy texture and a soft carbonation. Finishes rather dry and spicy with faint liquorice, dark fruits and light impressions of alcohol. Lovely, rather spicy.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
From bottle. Deep dark brown color with quickly dissipating tan head. Aroma is molasses, plum, and roasted chocolate malt, maybe some cherry also. Taste is similar to aroma, but a lit more subdued and with more molasses and some added roasted notes. Molasses finish, sweet but not too sweet.

Years of seeing this and I finally buy a bottle in SLC. Pours a dark brown with some ruby highlights and a thin tan head of tiny bubble that settles quickly. Bold aroma that reminds me of cinnamon cereal that has been toasted. Flavor has some molasses and spice. Good just make sure you let it warm a touch to get the full flavors.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle @ weekly tasting shared by Dutchdrebus and Ansjelaah. Red brown color, small beige head. Smell and taste malts, slightly iron, slightly a hint of caramel, lightly bitter. Quite hard to describe imo. Decent body and carbonation.
