3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Slight/medium aroma of malts, caramel, dried fruit, bread and nuts.
Turbid/opaque ruby/brown beer with a slight/medium beige head.
Starts medium sweet with malts, caramel and dried fruit; ends slightly dry with bread and nuts.
This beer is rather intense and balanced. The flavour could have had more depth and could have been more complex. The aroma lacks in all areas though, missing any intensity to make it interesting.

Bottle 0.5l at home, Nivala. Thanks to Erzingel! BBE 07.03.15. Colour is clear dark brown with small white head. Aromas and flavors: Grain, bread, some molasses and malts. Nice maltiness but simple. Aging has perhaps taken most sweetness away.
