   AROMA 2/10   APPEARANCE 1/5   TASTE 1/10   PALATE 2/5   OVERALL 3/20
GoufCustom (1914) - - JAN 29, 2013
UPDATED: FEB 6, 2013

330ml bottle along with the IKEA Ol Ljus lager bought during a weekly sale at local IKEA store.Clear dark reddish brown colour; Minimal head and off-white foam which disappears in less than 20 seconds; No lacing and okay carbonation; strong smell of dark malt and cheap soy sauce; Light body and very watery palate, with taste of coffee sludge, faint malt and straw. Light but evident hop bitterness with lingers with dry after taste.

Comments: After the terrible experience I had with IKEA’s Ol Ljus lager, the expectation with this one has to be lowered. Turns out it was just as bad but in an entirely different manner. Its smell is a poor-man Mackeson XXX gone rotten, and if you can get pass that, its artificial and bad coffee taste will post a challenge to many beer tasters. Adding the non-head and watery body, this combination just doesn’t add up. Stay away.

330ml bottle (Ikea, Milton Keynes)
Sweet toffee caramel aroma. Deep red, small persistent tight tan head. Even more caramelly taste, deathly dull. Medium light palate, but of fizz cuts through the sweetness. Terribly macro, it’s a big fat narp from Anna.

Acaro (114) - Madrid, SPAIN - MAR 8, 2017
Aroma: cereal notes hidden behind hay Appearance: Soft black color with a light hazy liquid and soft white head. Taste: Medium sweet notes followed by a light bitter touch. Palate: Soft hidden and almost non-existent, but after some tries finally I got coffee notes. Light body with thin texture and soft carbonation. Abrupt carbonation. Overall: I was expeting a bit more after trying the blonde version but this one has even less features. Again, another fresh beer for summer.

Federak (15) - Verona, ITALY - FEB 5, 2017
Bottiglia, Ikea. Colore bruno scuro, quasi nero. Schiuma bruna, abbastanza fitta ma scompare subito. Aroma poco, ricorda la liquirizia. Sapore un po’ metallico, con liquirizia che torna. Al palato risulta bruciacchiato, non molto gradevole. In ogni caso, mi aspettavo peggio.

mzaar (3265) - Varberg, SWEDEN - DEC 19, 2016
Flaska. Mörkbrun med ett smutsvitt skum. Dofter och smaker av malt, kavring och karamell. Avslutas halvsött, men inte på ett alltigenom negativt sätt.

adamnowek (2387) - Brussels, BELGIUM - DEC 1, 2016
Bottle at IKEA Anderlecht. Had to disconnect from the IKEA wifi network to rate an IKEA beer because they block websites relating to alcohol. Anyway, it’s basically an overly carbonated tmavy with a funky blueberry finish.

33cl bottle from IKEA, Reading. Pours the colour of well stewed tea with a thick cream head; earthy caramel aroma; lively in the mouth with a sweet caramel taste; then an unpleasant earthy bitterness, leading to a very thin finish.

Endlich kann man sich im IKEA zubimmeln, schauen wir mal, ob sich das auch lohnt. In der Nase ein Hauch von Röstmalz. Im Trunk wenig Geschmack, leicht süß, wie Malzbier light. Kein Abgang. Das wär in Schweden ein Starkbier, für mich dann doch eher ein klassisches Malm. Taugt vielleicht für Billy, für mich sicher nicht.
