3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: OCT 2, 2012 Bottle from Gothenburg offie courtesy of Matt. Pours slim-haloed pale ruby. Sticky fig aroma with hints of bay leaf and battered sausage. Decent figgy, lightly buttered, chocolate-dusted malt taste with hins of red berries and mocha. More enjoyable and complex than I was expecting.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
The beer is a dark amber color with an off-white head. The nose is slightly toasty with some caramel and toffee, a bit of bread as well. Very mild hop aroma, just a bit of floral and earthy notes. The flavor has no real character to it. Some bland malt flavors of toast and stale bread. Minimal hop notes and no discernible bitterness. Very bland.

1.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Have you ever imagined being a horse? Drink this beer and all your fantasies will come true. Massively over powering flavour of hay, followed by a dry grassy after taste that lasts forever. Highly recommended against.
