3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle (2007 edition), shared with BBGTC, Foffern and Gunnar, courtesy of Gunnar - thanks for this aged treat man! :-) Pours a deep coca-cola-like brown body with a small off-white head. Aroma is sweet caramel, port wine, nuts, hints of toffee. Smooth and nice with a rather suitable touch of oxidation. Taste is nuts, port wine, toffee, caramel and hints of brown sugar and biscuits. Nice. Smooth body, mild carbonation. A very nice Christmas brew for sure, and properly cellared.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle shared with (and courtasy of) The Bergen tasting crew, and Gunnar. Has a deep clear reddish brown colour with a small beige head. A wonderful aroma of dried fruits, wood, leather, brown sugar and chocolate truffles. More wood in the flavour along with leather, raisins, licorice, dark berries, dark chocolate and some coffee and nuts. The mouthfeel is slick, and has a light bitterness. A delicious beer! What a great beer to cellar.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
0.33l bottle courtesy of Gunnar and shared with The Tasting Crew. Big thanks Gunnar! This is a dark brown one with a light bubbly off-white top. Fantastic oxidized on the nose with traces of spices, licorice and cardboard. It’s soft on the carbonation and really slick on the mouthfeel. Yeah, it’s oxidized in the taste also, with chocolate, nutmeg, cocoa and roasted malts dancing it’s way into a lingering aftertaste that never ends! Yeah, really enjoyable. 26.10.2012

Dark reddish colour. Burnt almond, raisins and prunes. I like the mouth-feel, but I’m not that enthusiastic about the alcoholic aftertaste. Interesting! (Thanks to Rune for bringing a 330ml bottle to the second beer session in Tårnrommet 13.01.09)

2.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Plummy fruit and fruitcake spice on the nose; cocoa-toasty in the mouth. In July, it seems to be in surprisingly good condition, fresh and fairly vibrant for a strong beer. Good but for me not quite a standout.
