Black with a nice big mocha head. Aroma: Fresh hops, citrus, pine, grapefruit, some dark malt notes such as coffee and chocolate. Nice! Taste: nice roasted presence with notes of coffee and creamy chocolate. A medium bitterness with piney hops and some grapefruit. A really tasty brew! VsXsV (4469) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAR 18, 2013
Bottle. Opaque black liquid with medium to big tan head. Aroma of fresh hops, tangerine, coffee, licorice, pumpernickel and weed. Taste is dry and medium bitter with notes of licorice, chocolate, fresh hops and tangerine. Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Nice but not as hoppy as I want my BIPAs. Still, balanced though.

Good fragrance with a very tasty flavor. This beer rolls around in your mouth as it should. The aftertaste lingers very long time. A wonderful beer this is it. This beer must only buy if you want a taste orgasm. Melker (264) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - MAR 16, 2013
Kul öl, väldigt mörk brun, ser ut som en stout med det täta beiga skummet. Luktar mycket fruktig humle, lite tall, kaffe och choklad. Lätt kryddig smak, ljus choklad, bröd. Beska och alkoholvärme på slutet.
God och lättdrucken. omhper (25251) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - MAR 16, 2013
Bottled, from Systembolaget. Near black with rich, firm beige head. Distinct aroma of pear and gooseberry, with chocolate liqueur on a distance. Mid sweet with near full body and well rounded mouthfeel. Chocolate and some caramel from the malt, lots of bear and gooseberry from the hops. Warming finish with distinct, somewhat resiny bitterness. Intense, yet balanced modern style ale.

Bottle from Systembolaget. Very powerfull smell (could smell it at an arms length) with grapefruit, pine and similar hop aromas. When I got closer I sensed some citrus and dark bready malts. Similar taste, lots of hops that is backed up with some dark roasted malts. It doesn’t have much of that coffee bitterness though, it’s more of a hop bitterness. I really enjoyed this one, one of the best beers I’ve tried from Sigtuna. hackobock (4045) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAR 15, 2013
UPDATED: MAR 17, 2013 Bottle from Systembolaget. Dark brown with a large tan head, slowly sinking and leaving a nice lacing. Aroma is at first fruity hops with pine, citrus, then the maltiness takes over with dried fruit and chocolate. Creamy and easy drinkable, the finishing bitterness leaves a hoppy and chocolaty impression. rarbring (2295) - Linköping, SWEDEN - MAR 14, 2013

Dark brown with a creamy, tan head. Aroma of roasted malt and nuts. Also with notes of citrus and licorice. About the same in the taste. Rather tasty.
