On tap. Aroma discreet, of cloves. Taste is burnt and tangy, cloves, alcohol and some nutty notes. Thin body. Cool_Bond (2676) - KUNG_AV_OL @ Instagram, SWEDEN - JAN 10, 2013
Good beer with good flavor and good taste. The aftertaste is a bit dry and boring otherwise I thought it was an alright Brown Ale. One of the better ones I’ve tried. ekstedt (6790) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - DEC 12, 2012

Bottle bought through Systembolaget. forgot I had this one so consumed after the best before date had passed.

Smell is tiny sweet, slightly sour and spicy with caramel, red wine, lemon zest, cloves, ginger, cinnamon, coriander, dark bread, prunes, hay, dry wood, cocoa powder and hints of compost and glue. Taste is tiny sweet, slightly bitter, tiny sour, malty and spicy with dark bread, cloves, cinnamon, cardamon, prunes, raisins, prunes, caramel, coriander, coffee, dark chocolate, ginger, liquorice root, black pepper, moist wood, hay and hints of red apples. Mouthfeel is tiny round, tiny tart, slightly watery, spicy astringent and light to medium bodied. Finish is slightly bitter, slightly sour and spicy with dark bread, ginger, cardamon, black pepper, moist wood, hay and caramel. Very spicy and not really my kind of beer but nothing too scary. olsvammel (7226) - Örebro, SWEDEN - MAY 13, 2012

Label stated "Brown Ale"
Pretty much black color in the light I had, has a hint of dark red in the bottom of the glass when held to the light. Very dark for a "Brown Ale" indeed. Small bubbly tan head. Sweet, sort of acidic taste that I think comes from Coriander/Cillantro or some other spice, also some clove, and smoke. Roasted malt, coffee, acidic spicy aftertaste. Sort of watery thin mouthfeel, medium bitterness. Feels right for the x-mas season. Malty, spicy, vegetable, but unfortunately also a garbage off-scent. Some cocoa/milk chocolate in scent and taste also.
courtesy of Per - cloudy dark brown beer with a poor head retention; a solid yet not overwhelming aroma of ginger with hints of cloves; medium malt body and carbonation; moderate sweetness and quite dry finish; malty aftertaste with lingering notes of ginger and pineapple - well-made oh6gdx (26488) - Vasa, FINLAND - MAY 7, 2011
Bottled (thanks omhper!). Very deep amber colour, small beige head. Aroma is a bunch of spices, some sweet malts and some hops and liquorice. Flavour is spicy, maltyness and some mild floral notes. Rather thin palate after the first spicyness kicks in.
