3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Big beige lasting head. Deep dark red barely translucent body. Syrupy spicy tobacco aroma with fruity citric notes. Dry roasty spicy licorice taste with tobacco and citrus notes. Light body. Astringent mouthfeel. Dry wooden floral citric aftertaste with soy sauce notes. Strange. Not at all harmonic, taste-wise it is all over the place. Not bad, though. (0.5l bottle, Systembolaget, Charlottenberg.)

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
500 ml bottle, from Systembolaget. ABV is 6.0%. Mahogany coloured beer, big cream-coloured long-lasting head with an orangey hue. Nice malty aroma, notes of caramel, brown bread and other baked goods, some moderate fruity notes too. The flavour is fairly rich and malty with notes of caramel. Dry hops, some spice and burnt caramel in the finish. Some resinous hops and distinct "burnt" notes in the long aftertaste. Quite good.
