3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
[Draft at ZBF 2004] A brown beer with a fine lazing but disappearing head. The flavor is sweet malty with notes of caramel. The flavor is sweet malty too - but with notes of roasted bread and aroma hops giving way to a bitter dry woody end.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
(Bottle 33 cl) Warm, orangey brown with a creamy, beige head leaving some lacework. Sweet aroma of roasted malt and caramel. Full - but not overly so - body, especially considering the alcohol. Marked accents of roasted malt and brown sugar, yet it manages to end fairly dry without much bitterness. The alcohol is very well hidden. 100307

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: AUG 28, 2006 [Bottled] Hazy mahogany colour. Coffee aroma. Sweet and very malty with near full body. Fruity and lightly raisiny with notes of lingonberries. The high alcohol contents is well hidden. A well integrated beer that perhaps lacks that extra touch to lift it to greatness.
