laakus (118) - Nossebro, - DEC 9, 2016
Bottle, best before 19/10/2018. Pours amber reddish, light brown foam. Nose is sweet malty, some toffee or nutty like tones and some hoppy aromas pushing through. Taste is sweet dried fruits like plums, some hints of toffee, not much bitterness and a very well hidden alcohol. After a while the hoppiness can be felt. Nice complexity! A great winter sipper this one!
