Slottskällans Freedom IPA
En god og sprød IPA, duften og smagen bærer præg af den amerikanske humle, ikke på den dårlige måde men den gode måde.

Slottskällans Kloster (2005-)
2012 vintage bottle. Batch K1202 Best before 20140328. Clear burgundy with a short dirt white head. Lots of yeast in the bottle. Rather nice oxidized aroma with prunes, figs, almonds, ripe apples, toffee, spice and leather. Taste is sweet malty and spicy with dried fruits as in the aroma plus some oranges. Toffee, brown sugar and salty leather and spice. Spicy finish. Medium to bigger mouthfeel, soft carb, oily texture. Above expectations. Maybe a bit thinner than needed and still a bit too spicy fir my likings. Feels almost like a decent british barley wine.

Slottskällans Imperial Stout
Bottle as a gift from Albin ( ratebeer name Wanabe_me ) awsome bro ! Thnx very much ! Pours very dark brown, close to black. Creamy, bit darker , good sized head. Smell is darksugar. palmsugar pops to mind. I had some palmsugar that had coffee aspects, this scent reminds me of that. Doesn’t smell like there’s actual coffee in this, but I do get the aspects... The sweet, earhtyness, factors are really strong, and very attypical for an impy. Taste is sugary, aromatic, again that coffee-like-palm-Sugar aspects. a certain dryness ( roasty ), a certain bitterness. rather sweet, a thick, sugary ( special Sugar ) mouthfeel. it’s definately off the charts compared to any other imperial stout I’ve had. it’s not comparable with anything I’ve had before, accept of one of my homebrews, with loads of Palmsugar in it ( hence the constant remembrance of it ) Accept for the fact this is many, many times better in both quality and taste. I really enjoyed this, but have a hard time to view this as an imperial stout, since it’s so different. I’d be very curious to find out how this is brewed, is it indeed palmsugar? This seems like it could have a style on its own. I applaud it ! Thnx very much Albin, I enjoyed this more that I thought i would !

Slottskällans Rum Quad
Bottle 33 cl. Pours amber with a slight haze and a tiny, rough off-white head. Aroma is not entirely pleasant, sort of like a very boozy and cheap Sherry without refinement. The body is surprisingly thin. As so often barrel-aging can take the body out of a solid beer and in this case replace it with a rather tart liquid with no distinct rum traces. What you have left is basically a severely infected Quad with a massive dose of booze at the end. Not horrible, but no real pleasure either. 220916

Slottskällans Svart
330ml bottle. Muddy dark brown body with a tall tan head. Aromas of roasted & burnt malt, fruit & coffee. Flavor is more straight forward roasted, with a touch of chocolate. A bit one sided. Wouldn’t call this a porter really, but as far as beers go, it’s quite ok.

Slottskällans Tomte
Samea, hailakanruskea olut kohtalaisella, mutta aika pikaisesti katoavalla vaahdolla. Tuoksu pähkinäinen, aniksinen ja karamellisen maltainen. Maku aika kuiva, hieman hapan, maltainen, aavistuksen sitruksinen ja mausteinen. Keskitäyteläinen suutuntuma. On tässä jouluisuutta yritetty hakea, mutta hiivainen happamuus on turhan vallitsevana.

Slottskällans Vit (2013 -)
Pours hazy orange with a low white head. Aromas of lemongrass, bananas, coriander, citrus, minerals. Taste is quite floral and herbal with mineral notes. Mouthfeel is quite dry with a fairly light body and medium carbonation. What’s good: a very good by the numbers wit that has a really nice balance. What could be better: perhaps a little more crispness and sharpness.

Really dark brown color with a big frothy tan head. Solid lacing. Weird and a bit unpleasant aroma. Medium body and quite rich carbonation. Tad sweet and a moderate bitterness. Flavor…ehhh my goodness this was really BAD. Wort malty, toffee, cooked vegetables and herbal. Must have been something wrong with this one. Undrinkable.

More citrus and floral hops than bittering, this was lighter and simpler than the Oppigard pale we had at the same time. I liked the flavor quite a bit though.

A bottle almost year too old. Cloudy amber color with huge white head, probably because of the age of the beer. Nice aroma of citrus and hops and fruit. Taste i little sweet with bitter finish. Overall a good IPA, and I would buy it again, also to taste when it’s fresh.
