3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A wonderful dark colour, a good caramelly aroma and a roasted and a bit smokey taste of bread. The only real drawback is that it’s slightly watery. Sure, it’s not a good as the stronger variant, but it’s still pretty damn good.

Bottle from NK in Stockholm. Nice roasted caramelly beginning. Moderate bitterness with Ale-typical flavours. The body is not too watery, easy to drink and still full-bodied with a dry malty-roasted Ale-ending. Nice!

2.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
500ml brown bottle, poured into a pint glass. Appearance is clear dark mahogany with a medium sized frothy beige head. Aroma of caramel and syrup loaf. Flavours of caramel, nutty notes and bread. Taste is light sweet and medium bitter. Palate is light-medium bodied, soft texture and average carbonation. Overall good for a 3.5% ABV beer, but compared to the regular version this lacks body and is too light.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Pours a medium brown with red tinges and a cream-tan, fine-grained, medium head. Nose is roast grain, tea, dark fruit, and a touch of brown sugar. Mild on the tongue, with a smoky, dry round flavor; there’s a little dark fruit in there, but mostly it’s somewhere between strong tea and weak coffee. Clean enough on the finish. It’s an average bitter; nothing bad about it, but nothing memorable, either.
