4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Motor oil black. Huge aroma of wood, cognac, vanilla. Some toast, herbs.. very complex aroma and pleasant. Brutally hits you on the tongue, tiny hints of smoke, but huge malts, stickyness and oak. You can almost tell what brand of cognac was in the barrels. Very complex. Although being a powerhouse of 13% abv, this was never over the top. It┤s still quite delicate. One to savour and age more, but what a brew!

Bottle, thanks Gumundur. Dark chocolate, cognac and peppery licorice aroma. Black, low head. Spicy chocolate entry, licorice cocoa beans, roast, coconut, vanilla/oak notes, cognac burn in the back of the troat.
Mellow smooth mouthfeel. Fullflavored but well balanced and dangerously sipable, very nice.
