Svesse (8007) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - APR 1, 2006
(Bottled) Amber colour with creamy, disappearing head. Malty, roasted nose with dark rye bread, toffee, caramel and a light whif of smoke. Malty taste with the same aromas, maybe some chocolate and dried fruit in there as well. Mildly hoppy and chocolatey finish. Nice and very drinkable.

Sigmund (6958) - Tau, NORWAY - JUL 7, 2003
UPDATED: OCT 4, 2006 (500 ml bottle, as Slottskällans Wien). Beautiful dark reddish brown colour, low head. Interesting strong aroma, initially it’s overwhelming horse stable / fresh horse droppings(!), later the caramel, molasses and malts come through. Malty sweetness is well balanced by the hops, pleasant mellow aftertaste. I’ll leave it to the "style police" to discuss if this is Vienna or Munich dunkel - IMO the Swedes have done a reasonably good job with this beer.

larsniclas (6855) - Billdal, SWEDEN - MAY 4, 2003
Red body with a lot of hoparoma and flavour. Really bitter! Touch of dirt, a beer with an attitude.
