stunetii (90) - Bergen, NORWAY, - AUG 14, 2011ChrisOfstad (73) - Hamar, NORWAY - JUN 17, 2017
Purchased at systembolaget in Goteborg sometime in the middle of April, 2011. Overall, this is a very robust ale, with good body and lots of flavor that definitely favored the hoppy side.
Pours with a deep, dark amber color and a medium-sized off-white head. The lacing is very dense and sticky: the appearance is excellent.
The aroma is reminiscent of pine, fruits (plums perhaps), and a hint of caramel.
The mouth feel is somewhat creamy. The is taste is relatively complex: a bit herbal and fruity in the start, with a distinct bitterness in the finish that lingers on for a bit too long.
A very good ale and one that I would buy again.

Rødbrunt med fint skum. Ristet korn, tørket frukt og sirup i duften. Det samme følger i smaken. mile (3932) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAY 21, 2017
Bottle. Dark golden, small to average and mostly diminishing head. Moderate, malty and sweetish aroma, some caramel and light bread, light citrus hoppyness. Body is medium, malty and sweetish flavor, some caramel - light toffee with faint bread, light citrus hoppyness. Finish is average, malty and lightly sweetish - sweetish, light - some caramel and light toffee with faint bread, light citrus hoppyness. Caramel sweetish ale with notes of toffee. Way too sweet and too much caramel for me. For those with sweet tooth. NallePalle (626) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - MAY 19, 2017

500 ml bottle from Alko. Pours amber with a mediumsized white head. Aroma is caramel, bread, earthy and grasy hops. Taste reflects the aroma, but even sweeter than the aroma. Medium bodied. Medium bitterness. Medium carbonation. Simonsen (1264) - NORWAY - APR 15, 2017
Flaske .mørk gylden, klar farge. Smaker karamell,brød,appelsin . En ganske plain øl Marstonlad (876) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 14, 2017
Bottle from Alko, Helsinki. Pours fairly clear bronze with a little white head that disappears completely. The aroma features sweet maltiness and dried fruitiness – caramel, fudge, raisin. Taste is medium sweet, malt-driven and fairly fruity. Caramel and fudge appear initially, later dried fruitiness and berries take over. Light hoppy bitterness counters sweetness in the finish. The palate is medium-bodied, smooth and low in carbonation. Flavours fit perfectly into Easter; nice, multi-purpose beer for other times as well. alkolas510 (1381) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - MAR 25, 2017
Mörkt bärnstensfärgad klar med vit skum. Doftar och smakar mycket karamellmalt och lite citrus humle med bra beska. Abrakarl (436) - SWEDEN - MAY 14, 2016
Decent but not too exciting beer from this great Swedish brewery. Won’t try it again though.
