3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
DATE TASTED: February 20, 2014... GLASSWARE: Victory Nonick... OCCASION: a beer much sought after... APPEARANCE: dark brown body that displays HUGE chunks of sediment--been sitting too long? thick, chunky off-white head offers formidable lacing... AROMA: brilliant buttery, big malt aroma with dampened caramel and candy sugars; somewhat earthy, grainy but difficult to lay a nostril to...PALATE: smooth, thin and mellow--the mouth is refreshed as much as it’s engaged; slightly warming as the glass drains...TASTE: sweet and malty; a brown ale’s subtlety with fleeting fervor--a bit of barleywine funk at the end; low to no hop impression... OVERALL: the initial shock of floating substance (something I had not dealt with since the "claw" incident in Heavy Seas’ Saison art the shore a decade ago) still makes this review tainted; I have little doubt this rates better than I afforded it, but to rate authentically, I cannot be betray the experience itself...I may have to find another distributor to ascertain the true quality of this beer...

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle from Alko. Pours dark amber with white one-finger head. Sweet dried fruits and complex sweet maltiness in the nose. Taste is sweet. Bitterness is very moderate. Body is complex maltiness and despite the sweetness, I’d call it balanced. Moderate carbonation. Sweetness and full body is well supported by the strong alc.%.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Täysin kirkas, läpinäkyvä olut vaahtoaa melko vähäisesti. Tuoksussa makeaa maltaisuutta, jännää rusinamaista otetta varsin runsaasti ja hedelmää. Maku hedelmäinen, runsaan makean maltainen, marjainen ja hieman pähkinäinen. Makeus menee vähän överiksi.
