3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: NOV 30, 2015 Sampled from a 33cl bottle from Systembolaget. Clear, dark brown colour with a creamy off-white head. Aroma of vine fruits, molasses and booze. Taste is rich, like fruitcake soaked in brandy. Plenty of fruit - grapefruit, orange, raisins - and a good, hoppy, bitter finish. An excellent strong ale.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Big beige head. Clear deep dark reddish brown body. Resiny tropical
fruit aroma with chocolatey notes. Not bad, but the aromas clash.
Dryish tropical fruit and caramel taste with meaty notes. Mid-bodied.
Mild, soft mouthfeel. Dry resiny grapefruit aftertaste with caramelly
notes. Well. It’s not a bad beer, but this combination doesn’t work
for me. (0.33l bottle, from Systembolaget Ljungskile.)

3.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dry, bitter for its kind and very refreshing. It's kinda light so set it early in a tasting. It's good and simple.

Flaska från SB. Mer annanas än den vanliga grapen. Fräsch. Fin bland de tyngre. Fruktig. Bra beska som kontrast mot julmaten.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
From tap. Perfect session pale ale. Minerally aroma with iron, moderate hops and maltiness. The palate is full bodied and complex enough to be satisfying but not so much that it becomes cloying or unpleasant, even after several pints. Pleasant bitterness and maltiness lingering. I could drink this all night long.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle at home. One year old. The colour is slightly hazy reddish brown with a nice, creamy, ivory head. Fruity aroma with spices, fruity hops, pine apple, leather and pine. Hops also pretty present in the flavour with orange peel, grapefruit, leather, berries and heather. Has a slick mouth feel and a balanced bitterness. A surprisingly hoppy beer but is balanced and easy drinking.
