0.33 l bottle from Systembolaget. Reddish amber color. Very caramelly flavor with toffee and hint of sweaty hops. Caramelly and toffeish flavor. Begins slightly sweet but finishes with fairly firm fruity and nutty bitterness. Not bad, slightly too caramelly for me.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Amber pour with a good looking head. Flavours are bittersweet with some nice malts and hops but also off-flavours and alcohol which brings this beer down.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Greyish golden with hints of red. Medium head. Vague smell of grapefruit, but no apparent bitterness. Slightly off-sweet flavor of dried fruit and burnt sugar, but only enough to tempt, it doesn’t satisfy. OK - but nothing special.
