The ABV and a strong carbonation makes it ideal for fat fish and

Bottle at EsBF09. Good roasted aroma, mild but nice. Clear dark red brown colour. Small stable off-white head. The flavour is also nicely roasted, with a good malt base. It is slightly citric, I am sure unintended. A shame with the citric note.

Dark amber colored with little yellow head. Spinach dominates this aroma with berries and sourness. Medium bodied. Flavor starts with sweet berries and caramel, aftertaste turns to drier with with slight lingonberries still. Somehow safty palate. Alcohol is covered finely, only thin tone in aftertaste. Not too bockish one.

500 ml bottle. Slightly hazy reddish body with a small, disappearing off-white head. Vague aroma, a bit sour. Flavor is malty and sour, probably coursed by diacetyl. Some hops in the finish. Could be so much better.
