4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
(Draught, Stockholm Beer Festival, 29 Sep) Colour is black with a creamy, firm beige head. Roasted nose with notes of wild berries (blueberries, crowberries) and lots of grassy hops. Taste is roasted, hoppy with loads of dark, bitter coffee and chocolate. Mainly dry. Medium body. Very tasty, regarding the fairly low abv. Quite brilliant, actually.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: OCT 26, 2006 Re-rate draught at Söderbärke Ölfestival and Glenfiddich Warehouse, Stockholm. The green apples are replaced by milky chocolate. The mouthfeel is now more rounded. Much improved comparing to what I had at Stockholm Beer Fest.
Draught at Stockholm Beer Festival Black, small beige head. Aroma of spicy hops, licorice and green apples. Medium sweet with light-medium body and clean mouthfeel. Some chocolate before a salty, tarry finish. Too much green apples. [4/4/5/3/9 = 2.5]
