12-DEC-2012, bottle @home, from Systembolaget, present from Erik.
Very dark brown with huge fine "grained" head lacing the glass. Roast and hops aroma, more to the hoppy grassy side than the roasted. That is just opposite on the taste. Hard roasted, burnt malts dominate. Citric grassy hops on top of that. Quite creamy with soft carbonation. Lovely but a bit rough drink. _angst_ (4810) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - SEP 5, 2012
330 ml bottle bought @ Systembolaget. pours very dark reddish brown with a rather small frothy brownish beige head that quickly dissipates while leaving some thick lacing on the glass. Smell is sweet, fruity and herbal with roasted malts, winegums, grapefruit juice, dark roast coffee, dark grapes, resin, alcohol, earthy red wine and salty liquorice. Taste is tiny sweet and bitter with roasted malts, dark roast coffee, grapefruit rinds, orange peal, resinous wood, grape zest, moist soil, pine, salty liquorice and freshly cut grass. Mouthfeel is round, oily bitter and mediukm bodied. Finish is tiny sweet and bitter with roasted malts, unripe mango, grapefruit peal, dark roast coffee, green grapes, warming alcohol and resinous wood. Quite nice...

Bottle. Very dark brown, almost black, opaque liquid with medium to big, fluffy mocca head. Aroma has a nice mix of both roasted notes and hops with notes of fresh coffee, flowery hops, tangerine, light ash, bit grass, bitter chocolate, licorice and biscuity malt. As said, nice balance. Taste is dry and medium bitter with nice notes of coffee, grass and citrus along with some light ash and pumpernickel. Medium to full bodied with nicely soft carbonation. Wow, great example of the style with good balance, great mouthfeel and a significant but in no way disturbing bitterness. I’m impresed! SirLimpsalot (4452) - SWEDEN - SEP 7, 2012
@ Basunen: Doften tycker jag är ganska diskret. Det samma är smaken med en viss humlebeska och små brända toner. Jag blir inte imponerad och jag tycker det inte händer så mycket.
