Clear dark copper to reddish brown color, fairly small tan to light brown head. Malty, grainy, sweet scent. Malty, grainy, bitter, roasted taste, minerals and salty. Dry bitter, also grainy, aftertaste. Rather smooth mouthfeel, high dry bitterness. Lingering dry bitterness. Hints of taste hops as well.
Almost too bitter, would like it a bit sweeter. Might go rather well with something fat and salty on the X-mas table of overindulgance in food. By itself too dry, bitter and mineraly.
50 cl bottle ordered home from Systembolaget in Kalmar.
