(Draught at Monk’s Café Wallingatan, Stockholm) Dark brown colour with frothy, beige head. Malty, hoppy nose with notes of caramel, chocolate, toffee, pine needles, grapefruit and fresh hops. Malty, hoppy taste with caramel, toffee, chocolate, dark rye bread, grapefruit, pine needles and a generous, fresh bitterness in the finish. Almost full body, with a certain sweetness. Style-wise somewhere between brown ale, black IPA and Belgian strong ale. A bit confusing, but very tasty and nice.
