This is a very nice beer that pours a dark brown body. There is a sweet malt characteristic in the taste and flavor. This beer also has a tingle on the back of the throat and the jaw as it goes down.

Nice dark red/brown color with good off-white head. Aroma of caramel and hops. Taste is bitter with sweetness in finish. Long bitter aftertaste. Good beer.

A classic from one of the all time great breweries. Hard to find, so make sure to pick one up if you see it.

From 500 ml bottle bought in Norway.

Brass-copper color with a thin lacing of head.

The hops give a soft spicy aroma - reminiscent of smoked paprika. Toasted malts are also present, a long with some dark fruity aromas.

Drinking it the first i taste are the hops which is followed by malt and ester flavours similar to what the aroma was like. Finishes with a pleasant medium-low mild bitterness. Kind of hard to differentiate the different tastes since they meld together so well.

Overall a really well balanced beer with solid malt profile that finishes dry enough that you can several pints of it. Really good!
