3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
(50 cl bottle from the brewery; Batch #355 BBD: January 2018) Pours black with tan, quickly receding head. Decent regeneration. Aroma is wet oak and bourbon with some booze upfront that fades leaving notes of fruits like prune and plum. Soft carbonation, full body, oily texture and a leathery finish. Taste follows the flavour with some added caramel. Girlfriend says: "it’s less tasty than the Pride."

Första doften som slår mig är äppelskal. Gröna äppelskal. Tar emot lite. Nån felsmak jag inte kan identifiera. Spritig.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours black with a fairly low dark tan head. Aroma of bourbon barrel, coffee, vanilla, brown sugar, figs. Taste is somewhat mellow initially before the boozy sweet kicks in, followed by a balanced bitterness. Boozy finish with distinct whisky / booze notes. Body is full and creamy with soft carbonation. It’s a nice RIS but a bit let down by the mouthfeel and the finish.

4.3 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
All-out assault on the nose with whisky, vanilla, coffee and slight traces of smoked wood. Mouthfeel is creamy and very nicely textured. Taste is fantastic: coffee, whisky, some butterscotch and vanilla along with traces of caramel and honey. Best version of Hr Fredriksen I've had so far!
