4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from Systembolaget. Aroma of bourbon, chocolate, vanilla and alcohol. Pours black with a medium light brown head. Deep rich taste of vanilla, coffee and chocolate. Palate is very lean and has a smooth creamy feeling. Overall a very nice beer, though you could wish for a slightly enhanced aroma.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma is thick and sweet from vanilla, wet wood and some undefined tar sensation. Taste is upfront strong coffee, dark chocolates and rough bitterness. It soon transforms into a sweetness, and I guess it is here the barrel-aging takes effect? Actually, it turns a bit too sweet for me and that was a little disappointment. A super-nice stout, but the sweetness annoys me a little.
