Found two versions with different labels and barcodes, one titled Bryg No. 008a, the other Bryg No. 008b. Rating them simultaneous:
gnoff (10226) - Mölndal, SWEDEN - SEP 15, 2008
Bryg No. 008a – 7 / 3 / 7 / 3 / 12
Bottle. 5.5%. No best before date. Pours black with a diminishing khaki head. Sweetish roasted aroma, stout-like. Flavour is sweetish and roasted, with a light berry-like tartness. Bitter, roasted coffee finish with a sweet note. Coffee bitterness lingering as well as a tart note. Overall decent. 23.03.13.
Bryg No. 008b – 6 / 3 / 6 / 3 / 11
Bottle. 5.5%. Best before 10.13. Pours black with a diminishing khaki head, a bit darker than the 008a and more fluffy. Sweetish roasted aroma, slightly tart and with a metallic note. Tart, sweet roasted flavour with a light greasy overtone. Finish is dry and roasted with lingering notes of coffee and grass. Overall okay, if a bit cloying. 23.03.13.
Overall, although pretty similar, the 008a is a bit better than the 008b; more balanced and just a bit better aroma and flavour, and also more on the stout-side, although both seems closer to a stout than a schwarzbier. The 008b has more sweetness to it and a slightly greasy palate, which makes it a bit cloying.
