4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle, 375ml corked. A more or less black one, topped by a dense, finger-thick dark beige to light tan head. The aroma has a solid dose of port, with roasted malts, coffee notes, a little alcohol and some hoppy notes. Or is it something else than hops? Lightly salty on the palate, full-bodied, soft and with some warmth. Coffee, port, bitterness and dark chocolate. Lasting finish with roasted malts and salty licorice. Some soy notes too. Liquid joy. 120804

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Mane Liquor. Pours dirty, dark brown with a few bubbles sitting on top. Nose is quite sweet, with vinous notes and loads of fig and sticky date. Oats sit behind it all. Quite appealing but nothing overly exciting about it. Very sweet to start with and gradually gets sweeter before it quickly tapers off to a soft, short bitterness. Sticky but thin mouth feel. Not very boozy for the 9% abv. Sticky date and chocolate port tones surround the mouth. Mouth gets coated with a dryness. Not bad but nothing wows me, solid

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Smooth and roasted body at first which then goes over into a more watered down version. A lot of roasted character to it.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle @ Rene’s house, courtesy of Rasmus40. Thanks a bunch! Deep brown appearance with a dark brown head. Rich licorice/anise, vinous, chocolate, light dusty aroma. Intense, grape fruity, very rich, chocolate, licorice, a touch smoky, somewhat boozy flavor. The port/vinous flavor is a bit awkward with the roasty chocolate, licorice notes.
