On tap at The Rover, Göteborg. Copper coloured, low head. Nice nutty and hoppy aroma, notes of toffee and grapefruit. Hoppy flavour on a decent malty base, grapefruity elements, "dusty" hops in the finish, bitter aftertaste. A bitter well above average.

On tap at Örebro Ölhall.

Pours a dark ruby with soft, tan head.

Smell is malty and a bit floral. Notes of pie crust, citrus and some leather.

Taste is soft and malty with some floral hints. Notes of citrus, leather and brown bread. Moderate bitterness.

Mouthfeel is medium, creamy and well carbonated.

Overall, a terrific bitter, on the stronger side of the style.

Poured into a BrewDog snifter glass.

A: The body is very coppery and mildly dark. The head is white to beige with medium retention and somewhat living only close to the glass. It's medium hazi but shows a light body.
S: This beer's aroma is very strong in malt and in orthodox hops, having a clear distinct character of the east golding as it is one of the most commercial hops known to men. You can feel it clearly here. In the end, the aroma feels like a hop-powered light barleywine.
T: Taste starts off with a sweet and giant malty tone, very strong. It then moves lightly to the bitter end of the sip with a crystalline bitterness with no harshness from the mainstream hops used.
M: Body is medium. Carbonation is great. Alcohol is unnoticed. Bitterness is high.
O: Again, this is just my second Narke beer and even though I'm not in love with it, this is certainly technically very well executed.

The beer pours hazy, copper-brown, with a two finger highe, fluffy, beige, head.

Nose: Very fruity! Plum, dried fruit, raisin, apple, dark berries, caramel malt and fudge.
Taste: Not as big as the nose but very subtile and great! Dry but still sweet. Dried fruit, dark bread, raisin and malt.
Mouth: Medium body and carbonation. Sweet and dry ending. Great beer!

Conclusion: A beer in a beatiful bottle with a personality. Deep, complex but still easy to drink. A beatiful beer paring with BBQ meat, christmas food etc.
