Uncorks with a loud pop and some force. Always a good start!
Pours a ruddy clear brown/red with a nice fluffy off-white head. Leaves a small amount of lace on the glass.
Smell is quite powerful with brown sugar, roasty malts, fruitcake and caramel. It also contains some red wine notes. I kept thinking of the Cotes du Rhone I had last night as I was drinking this beer. I had trouble detecting the alcohol in the nose despite the 10% abv.
Sweet caramel, brownsugar, and some hop bitterness that comes through similar to a Ricola cough drop. More like bittering herbs (herbes de provence?) than hops. An interesting combination. The beer finishes with a long sweet caramel flavor and alcohol warmth. My lips are sticky!
Mouthfeel has some bite to it, but it is not annoying. Feels thick and creamy.
This one is a sipper for sure. Sort of like a bitter dessert wine. Almost a shame I am drinking this in 92 degree heat (of course the a/c makes that manageable). Too much too fast will make my head spin!

13oz draft pour at bier markt mississauga
a: deep orange/amber hue with half a finger of head
s: huge banana and vanilla up front, great stuff. hints of maraschino cherries. alcohol is present
t: a melange of bananas, maraschino cherries, and vanilla to begin with. it's sweet all around but not offensively so. nice! but what i dislike here is the alcohol presence -- it's rather strong and makes the entire tasting feel medicinal. light spice on the back-end. dry finish
m: medium body, medium carbonation
o: this beer has a lovely aroma but the flavours are all ruined by the alcohol strength
Serving type: on-tap

Summer night in Sweden with a 750 ml bottle in the garden. This is love.
Do think the big bottle has much more taste and nose
If you want this and if you are in Scandinavia do make a stop in Denmark were the price is "very low" ~ 5 USD at most supermarkets.
