3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Systembolaget. BB 31 Mar 12, sampled on April 16, 2011
Clear dark reddish brown color, smallish to medium tan head. Sweet, malty, herbal and floral hoppy scent. Malty, mineral, hoppy taste that dies very fast. Moussy mouthfeel, medium bitterness to the dry and chalky side that is the only thing that lingers in this beer. Almost like sucking on a piece of dry wall.
An alcoholic touch starts to show when warming up.
Pretty good stuff, though the ABV is a bit too high to be drinking too much of this.
