50 cl bottle, bought at while back. Likely ordered by the bottle to my local Systembolaget. Seems to be available at three stores. BB April 2014, sampled on November 1, 2013.
Clear dark reddish brown color, big fluffy lasting tan head. Very subtle nose, light sweet, the faintest hints of smoke, a sprinkle of fruits - dark and dried, some notes of what is likely to be alcohol as well in the scent. Smells mellow, laid back, not bad at all but also doesn’t like to speak up or be noticed. Sweet, bread, grainy, light roasted, some alcohol, fruity taste. Thankfully the taste takes up way more room than the scent did! Hints of mineral, light tart, some Trocadero making its way through in the taste as well. Mineral, roasted, hints of coffee, some charred notes in the aftertaste. However there comes the Trocadero in the aftertaste as well, what is that, like some sort of soft sweet/candy like estery chemical thing, unnatural flavor component. A bit like charcoal and ashes mixed with pop, when trying for subtle but noticeable, but overdid the camp fire notes when the coal dropped into your pop glass. Rather full mouthfeel, some CO2 that sticks out, but not too much. Medium bitterness. Smell is way too laid back, taste do get through a whole lot more, but have some weird notes that I feel should not be there for my personal preference.
Draught at Haket on April 20, 2017.
