Brun med dragning åt rött. Lusbeige skum. Dofter och smak av karamell, torkad frukt, malt och lättare alkoholsötma. StefanSD (2468) - Ouray, Colorado, USA - JUL 24, 2014
330 ml bottle courtesy of Alex. Thanks. Pours a dark brown color with a small off-white head that recedes to a fine film. The aroma is raisins, carrots and slightly sour toffee. The taste had ample raisins, brown sugar and some nuts, but not very much bitterness. The palate was full and a bit oily with soft carbonation. Finishes short and sweet. Overall: Interesting brew, a nice change of pace from the barley wines that I typically get. TheJestersBeer (2431) - SWEDEN - JUN 4, 2012
