3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle shared with Veitafan and ClubGonzo. The colour is cloudy brown with a small light brown head. Has a powerful and sweet aroma of oak, alcohol, hops, vanilla and toffee. Nice and complex. The flavour has a lot of oak and sweet malt, and leather. Complex and is pretty impacted by the barrel aging. Feels a bit like creme brulee. Has a slick mouth feel, and a light bitterness. A complex and decent ale, and the barrel aging comes really through.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, shared with Foffern and Veitafan. Pours a deep hazy copper-hued bronze body with a small beige head. Nose is strong boozy whisky and raisin notes, brown sugar, vanilla, red fruits and hints of herbs. Assertive and nice. Taste is burnt sugar, vanilla, brown sugar, raisins, ashes, alcohol, hints of caramel and straw. Loads of woody dryness in the finish. Full body, soft carbonation. A strong, but relatively pleasant scotch ale variant.

3.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
15-MAR-2013, bottle @Sonni, @Ulkløbben tasting.
Dark dark amber with tan head.
Aroma is wonderfull with malt, bread, alcohol, dried fruit, raisins, plum, rum.
Taste more messy. Rum - too much rum, cardboard, raisins, malt, sharp alcohol. Strange brew. A mess. Is this sick? Aroma was so promising...

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: FEB 25, 2013 Deep brown colour with a thick, frothy and persistant tan head. Nose is coffee, caramel and hops. Oily-creamy texture, medium carbonation. Aromas are coffee, wood, burnt caramel, hops and raisin. Alcohol is quite present but subtle (rum). Perfectly balanced between sweetness at the begining and bitterness at the end. Long bitter and alcoholic finish. A great experience !
