laiti (7742) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAR 21, 2015
75 cl bottle @ olio. Bottled 19.09.2013
Aroma is odd with old rye bread, some ripe fruits and caramel. Flavour has vanilla tones, some rye bread and sweet caramel tones. Also some harsh malt. Too sweet and sticky to be a slow sipper; not bad but the drinkability just suffers too much.

hopscotch (10265) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - FEB 26, 2015
Bottle... RBWG 2015This beer rocks!… Pours clear and deeply amber with a small, nicely tanned head. The aroma is a fantastic stream of raw coconut, rye whiskey, gooey caramel, dried and sweetened stone fruits, and dried plum. Full-bodied with a velvety mouthfeel and sufficient carbonation. The decadent flavor offers gooey, buttery, sweet caramel well-integrated with a generous measure of unobtrusive rye whiskey. Warming, comforting, nourishing finish. Yet another world-class treatment of a world-class beer from Alesmith via stawn!.

Bottle shared at RBWG 2015! Pours a hazy golden brown with thin off-white head that leaves light lace. Aroma of big sweet vanilla and toffee wroth just a hint of spicy wood back end. Taste follows, sweet but not overly so, booze is well hidden, damn nice, thanks for the share!
