On tap at the ChurchKey, DC. A rich, dark amber beer with an off-white head. A lovely sharp and fresh nose with various fruits, some booze and biscuit malt. There are a range of sweet, fruity and roasted elements here, all in a great blend. Caramel, ripe berries, orange, lemon, biscuity malt and tropical fruit work well together. The body is rich and dense. Nicely discernible but well blended tastes. Everything you could ask for in a big Euro BW. pilsnerrogge (2997) - Finspång, SWEDEN - MAY 13, 2016

Dark brown with a thick head. Aroma is toffee, dried fruit, brown sugar and some hops. Thick mouth feel. Sweet, malty taste with notes of toffee, hops and some warming alcohol.
12.7 oz bottle at home. Pours a clear dark caramel brown color with a few random bubbles. The aroma and flavor have sweet malts, caramel, toffee, dark ripe fruit, raisins, wood, figs, candi sugar, very little carbonation but I don’t mind that with this beer, strictly a dessert type beer, surprising that it isn’t hot, I have had this in the cellar for a bit.
