My review is tainted by a bad cork, which overwhelmed the aroma and flavor of this beer. I detected a nice spicy, peppery aspect, with a sweet, nice body, some earthiness, caramel malt and a bland finish. Amber color, rapidly diminished foamy, tan head. Probably a decent beer, but mine was in poor condition.
750ml bottle from Systembolaget. A bit oily but clear amber, dense tanned head, some lacing. Malty and fruity taste, hints of booze, toffee, chocolate, died fruit and grass. Smooth mouthfeel some alcohol burn, soft carbonation, medium bodied. Bread malty taste, toffee, dried figs, hay, hints of spices and booze. Warming finish.

Nice fluffy beige head. Clear amber color with a nice sparkle. Fruity aroma from forest fruits with a nice spicy hoppines. Fruity ligering taste with tiny sweetness and a crisp body. Small bitterness and nice for a warm summerday. cglans (211) - - JUN 4, 2017

330ml bottle @ monthly tasting, Chez Sophie, Oct 16. Brought by Jeremy. Many thanks! One of those beers I assumed I had rated before, but havent. Pours a hazed amber, off-white head. Aroma is ripe dark berries, malts. Taste bears a curious sweetness alongside the soft caramel malts that I think I missed last time. This I think makes it a little too sweet and imbalanced for me.

Decent, but a bit too sweet for me Cristobal37 (1117) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JUN 25, 2016
Fresh malts caramel salty fruity aroma. Amber brown minimal head. Medium body, sweet amber, starts carbonated then gets kinda molassesy like a heller bock, but without any booziness. Finish is light but nice. I imagine this would be a nice table beer with dinner. kapusil (1412) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JUN 25, 2016
