The tenacious grip of big, juicy hop aroma and character slides smoothly into rich, dark malts. This heavyweight battle between fresh, Yakima Valley hops and dark, roasted malts is resolved harmoniously as the flavors merge to deliver complex satisfaction with a warming edge. Enjoy the ‘twilight’ for the bright and brassy hops!

Bottle thanks to blutt59. Pours with a tan head and a brown body. Aroma of what smells like simcoe, herbal and dankness. Taste is really herbal, fresh and hoppy with grass, pine needles and caramel. Medium carbonation. Nice!

"not a hop bomb as expected. there are a ton of hops, sure, but the high dose of dark malt give it the look and feel of a barleywine or old ale...with the hops of a double ipa. this is a beer i could really get into. smooth, balanced, spicy hops in the bittersweet finish. nice hybrid here. via trade w/ kinger."

Pours copper with thin white head. The mild aroma is a mix of earthy and spicy hops with some mild sweetness around the edges. The taste is fresh crisp citrus and spicy hops. Actually there are lots and lots of tasty hops here supported by a tenuously thin layer of malty sweetness.

12 ounce bottle shared by Eric. Pours a clear copper color with a large creamy beige head. A mellow hop aroma, sweet and citrusy, light caramel. A great flavor; bitter and aggressive hops, sweet caramel and toasted malts, a nice creamy mouthfeel. Very nice, extremely drinkable.

12 oz. bottle. Pours a clear deep reddish copper color with a large pillowy beige head that collapses into a blanket of fine bubbles and leavesthick lacing. The aroma is citrus and spicy hops with mild amounts of dark malt, caramel and honey. The more I swirl the glass provides additional pine notes. The flavor is more hop heavy with citrus and pine seeming to stand out. Bitterness is moderate with maybe not enough sweetness to balance things. The malt comes off as a secondary partner in this brew and is bready with caramel. Mouthfeel is medium-full, lingering bitterness with no sign of alcohol. Light yeast, resin and some bready notes. Rating #199 for this beer.

Thanks to Dave for the bottle! Poured deep brown with a bloody tint to it.. nice cap of milky-beige head stuck around for a while. The aroma picked up fresh earth, floral, and pine resin hoppage over toasted caramel and nutty malts.. warm and spicy on the back of the nose. The flavor found spicy, and, well, brassy hops per the deScription all the way through (mostly black pepper and resiny pine).. caramel and nutty sweetness again at the core.. bright hop kick and alcohol warmth on the finish. Medium-bodied with moderate-plus carbonation on the palate.. overall just a bit too hot and abrasive, but otherwise tasty. I’d have another, and I’d like to see how it does with age.

Draft at Cole’s in Buffalo, NY. Deep amber brown with a beige head. Sweet hops in the aroma, with a touch of roasted malt and herbal notes. The flavor has floral hops, pine needles, and finishes with a nice roasty bitterness. Very nice.

Svesse (7262) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - APR 12, 2010
(Bottle, Oliver Twist, Stockholm) Dark brown colour with frothy, beige head. Malty, hoppy nose with caramel, dark fruit, chocolate and fresh citrussy hops. Malty taste with notes of chocolate, coffee, caramel, a touch of cocoa and a fresh, citrussy bitterness in the finish. Well balanced and tasty beer combining the nutty, malty character of brown ales and the fruity, hoppy character of an IPA. Not an easy thing to accomplish, but this is quite excellent. Nice one.
