750ml bottle pours a murky amber with some spitty, white head. Nose has booze, vanilla, rye, pepper, caramel, mild spice, a bit cakey. Flavor is boozy, sweet malt, spice, brown sugar, vanilla, plenty of barrel. Full bodied, sticky finish but very smooth. Finish really makes it.

Senka (999) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - DEC 14, 2015
750cl 19/09/2013, thanks FatPhil, 20150926) Extremely malty, and boozy. No noticeable rye as was expected. Sweet, kind of like melted vanilla ice cream in a barley wine. Probably missed the point here.

Smells like boozy rye whiskey. Taste is malty with some whiskey. Not much heat. Full body with mild alcohol heat.

750 ml bottle shared by phaleslu. Pours a clear dark amber color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have big, sweet malts, caramel, brown sugar, dark fruits, up front barrel showcasing the rye whiskey, spicy, wood, warming alcohol, I am a fan of this treatment of an already solid beer.
