The heaviest ale on our menu with a very rich taste, coming from the six different kinds of malt we use. These malts also give it that rich, dark, nearly black colour. The royal doses of Challenger and Saaz hops bring the typical balance between sweet and bitter.

Garrold (4512) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - DEC 6, 2016
Bottle. Migs World Wines, Brussels. Deep, ruby brown. Lightly hazy. Thin, dense, lasting, beige head. Nicely leggy. Nose has estery, just about to start fermenting, plum and dessert apple. Some treacle. Some woody malts in the background. Hint of black cherry and cherry stone. Taste is chewy, stone fruit sweet, with a roast malt bitterness, thats not particularly present on the nose, giving a nice balance of flavours. Soft and foamy mouthfeel. Doesnt feel close to the ABV. Fruity, sweet, chocolate cherry truffle finish. Lovely.

Tumma vri, kiva tihe pysyv vaahto. Makeutta sek tuoksussa, ett maussa. Alkoholi ehk pikkasen liian voimakas. Mutta kokonaisuutena oikein hyv.

Not very much more to add then what the Swedish systembolaget states: Nuanced toasted flavor with the sweetness, hints of dried fruit, nuts, chocolate, bitter orange, tobacco, coffee and syrup loaf.

Turtles (2191) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - OCT 28, 2016
750ml bottle from Systembolaget. Very dark with a large frothy, long-lasting tanned head, some lacing. Sweet aroma with roasted malt, dried fruit, sugar, anise and chocolate. Rather high carbonated, medium-bodied, sweet and silky mouthfeel. The taste follows the aroma, sweet dried fruit, fruit cake and sugar, along with the roasted malt, chocolate, licorice and mild smoky notes. Finishing with vinous alcohol. A bit too sugary.
