4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
23rd September 2012
Opaque black - brown beer, massive pale tan head. Nice toffee - caramel nose. Smooth palate, a little airy. Smooth malt with good dark toffee. Touch of rum and dark fruits. Finishes with the malt turning a little earthy and also creamy. All flavours very well integrated. Quite a light beer for it’s abv but with a wonderful richness of flavour.

From the very old notes, hence this is not a real rating, but more just a mark to myself that I have tried this at one point. Sweet and bitter beer with whisky character and a lot of raisins. Great brew.

@ Basunen 15-6-27: lite torr doft. Smaken är stor av torkat russin och plommon. Mycket fin balans.

Dark brown with a small head. Aroma and taste of dried fruit, malt, port wine, caramel and some rum. The mouthfeel was thick and the carbonation was soft. Warming alcohol in the finish. Still a tasty one.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, batch 218, enjoyed 2,5 years after bottling. Pours black, with a two finger thick, but fairly quickly receding, mocha head. Aroma is beautifully roasted malts, with dark fruits, bread and toffee, as well as oak barrels with notes of smoke and vanilla. Medium to full body, with soft carbonation. Flavour is deep, dark roasted malts, which at first hits with intense whisky notes, rum raisins, wood and leather, as well as notes kandi, dark fruits, cocoa, coffee, molasses and pleasant boozy notes. Lingering sweet malty finish. I often find scotch beers a bit one dimensional with sweet roasted malts, but this adds interesting and tasteful layers on top of that.
