Bottle, purchased @Systembolaget, Charlottenberg. A low tanned cream-ish head, over a well carbonated, clear reddish-brown body. Rustic hop aroma up front; Earthy, peppery and berry-fruity. Notes of cocoa and well roasted malts. Taste is pleasingly bitter, backed by a medium strong, cocoa-accented malt body. A nice fruitiness underneath. Medium full. Roast and distinct bitterness throughout. A pretty good and potent dark lager. TBone (18211) - Pori, FINLAND - DEC 16, 2011

Really nice taste and aroma, this is a good thing to drink. [short review due to it coming from my backlog] Mad_Ferret (1024) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - AUG 13, 2011
Clear dark mahogany/deep red with a big beige head that leave some spread lacings.
Aroma is sweet malty with toffee, some fudge, nutty, syrup bread, orangepeel and grassy hops.
Taste is relatively sweet with caramel and a hint of chocolate but a pretty high piney, herby and slight perfumy bitterness push the sweetness down. For a while it feels more like a hop pumped english bitter more than a vienna.
Body is medium with soft tickeling carbonation. I think Jessica is getting a bit more stabile, but the bitterness is still kind of harsh.

Bottle. Dark reddish/mahogany colour with a beige head.
Aroma: caramel, toffee, bread, nuts, dried fruit.
Flavor: caramel, toffee, grass, dried fruit, grapefruit, lightly roasted malt, tea-like tannins. Not very sweet, but still rather malty. Bitter and a bit too harsh finish. LoFi (1752) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - SEP 18, 2011
Dark reddish brown with a large tan head.
Aroma: fruity, nuts, some honey, a faint but nice hoppiness.
Taste: nuts, grass, toffee, some butter, citrus, soapy/floral, medium bitter, a bit thin.
Light-bodied, quite a high carbonation.
A typical beer that should be had with food, not on its own. olsvammel (7286) - Örebro, SWEDEN - SEP 23, 2011
