Ljunkan (530) - Karlstad, SWEDEN - NOV 27, 2008
UPDATED: MAY 16, 2009 Pours a darkbrown, almost black color with a nice, stable light brown head.
Aroma is a bit peculiar and surprising at first. Notes of smoke, pine forest, some dull(?) fruitiness, slightly of burnt malt.
Taste is malty, smokey and a bit spicy (christmas spices) with notes of pine-needles. Lightly sourish.
Mouthfeel is pretty filling, the beer is medium bodied with low carbonation.
Overall pretty nice beer from Dugges, but maybe lightly infected? larsniclas (7194) - Billdal, SWEDEN - NOV 20, 2008
