Bottle @ Grövelsjöns Fjällstation. An old friend that has been absent for a while (at least in Stockholm). A huge beer. Big creamy head, off-white. Colour of deep read wine, almost black. Citrus aroma with malts lurking underneath. A lot of malt in the body with some caramel icing on top. Medium-small carbonation. A nicely balanced bitter ending. Delicious mouth-feel and entirely drinkable. As I said, an old friend. Vignale (3933) - Malmö, SWEDEN - AUG 27, 2011
Mörk, närmast svart. Stor doft av choklad och rostad malt. Smaken är fruktig med mycket choklad, rostade porterliknande syrliga toner, len, krämig och med en medelstor beska som avrundning. Välbalanserad, lättdrucken och ett öl som passar i många sammanhang. Konstigt att den inte ingår i systemets ordinarie sortiment. Svårt att tänka på någon bättre öl som liknar denna. Åtminstone ingen svensk. tkrjukoff (4335) - SWEDEN - JUL 17, 2011

Brown colour tan head looks nice. Aroma is roasted but rather weak. Flavour is again roasted and sad to say a bit watery. Carbonation is lively. mjs (7510) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUL 30, 2009
