Turtles (2967) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - NOV 7, 2015
500ml bottle from Systembolaget. Clear dark amber, thick tanned head, two fingers in size leaving good lacing. Very mild aroma, grassy notes and faint sweet toffee. Smooth and light mouthfeel, medium carbonated. Mild sweetness in the taste from caramel with grassy and earthy notes, a bit poor in both taste and aroma.

Do not know if it’s my nose playing tricks on me but I feel no scent at all. Bitter taste of metal and basement. Ugh! Weak bitterness which fills the upper part of the mouth a weak moment. Almost undrinkable beer. Avoid! Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings. RuneStumo (2710) - Haugesund, NORWAY - JAN 4, 2009
04.01.2009, 0,5l Bottle. The colour is dark brown with a light brown head. Lively carbonated. Body is a little thin. Aroma is malty and a little sweet. Nische (2516) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - DEC 28, 2013
Dark amber colour, small brown head. Aroma is sweet malts along with fruity hints. Flavour is samekind of bitterish sour as many of their other beers. Has some sugar, caramel and malts in it too. NordicV (2501) - Malmö, Sweden, SWEDEN - JAN 3, 2012
Rödbrun, mörkt kopparfärgad med ganska klent smutsvitt skum. En något svag arom av malt, knäck och torkad frukt. Något för söt i smaken. Inte tillräckligt med bitterhet och kryddighet för att balansera.

Pours a deep copper, with a beige head.
Lightly roasted, malty aroma, caramel, fudge, diacetyl, hops, nuts.

Someone please change the label, they haven’t used that one for years. (2011-12-24) rarbring (2290) - Linköping, SWEDEN - DEC 5, 2012
Aroma: The smell is malty with dried fruits, which is well reflected in the taste which has tones of apricots, caramel and a malty richness.ramboraffe (2257) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - NOV 2, 2015
Appearance: A dark amber beer with a light rich beige head the leaves much on the glass.
Taste: A nice bitter tone complemented with acid.

500 ml bottle from Systembolaget. Clear dark copper with off white head. Burned malt, toast, coffee, dark chocolate and hay. Dry with medium bitterness and medium carbonation. Nice. Mads Langtved (2240) - Copenhagen K, DENMARK - DEC 30, 2002
A little thin. I was too drunk when I had this beer. Pretty rare though..... Gr0ve (2176) - Oslo, NORWAY - FEB 17, 2009
500 ml bottle. Mahogany with a ruby red hue. Medium-sized light beige fine-laced head that clings to the glass. Nutty aroma with a lot of chocolate. Very mellow aroma. Licorice flavours. Bready ye flavours, much reminiscent of kvass. Distinct hop bitterness that feels sharp and metallic initially, but blends into the soft flavours. A little watery in the finish. Interesting Christmas beer, and quite unlike any other I’ve had. In all it reminds of a kvass.
