Deep ruby color, no head. Wood, some sugars and whisky in the nose. Medium to full-bodied. Harsh alcohol, wood, toffee and warming whisky in the flavor. Nice but quite an alcohol bomb.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottiglia 4209 di 4400; 2011. Scurissimo e limpido color bruno con deboli riflessi rossastri in controluce, totale assenza di schiuma. Aroma dolce e morbido con sentori di toffee, cereali, frutta secca, lievito e frutta essicata. Gusto dolciastro, vinoso, rotondo con note di malto caramellato, frutta sciroppata, noci, nocciole ed un tocco lievemente acidulo; finale asciutto, emergono forti note legnose ed un tocco leggermente spiritato di whiskey. Effervescenza nulla, corpo medio (meno spessa del previsto, probabilmente a causa dell’età), oleosa sul palato, liquorosa, l’abv si sente tutto e "scalda" parecchio. Complessa e bizzarra, un esperimento destinato a stupire nonostante la mancanza di equilibrio.

Quite sweetish malty. Heavy.. this reminds me bit of tactical nuclear penguin.. thou in comparison.. K.O. loss for this one.. Interesting, enjoyable. but balance is not the best. Nice caramel thou. Quite oily and sticky. Somewhat too pushy.. Anyways.. nice brew, but I expected more

Looks like coke without head. Smells of booze, some dark fruits, oak. Heavy sweet, oak, booze, more fruits. Quite strange beer; i can’t really tell what’s missing, but some smoke could be nice

Bottle # 841. Pours dark brown with lots of sediments, and a small rather airy head. Aroma is roasted malts with grain, chocolate and oak, as well as some whiffs of alcohol. Full body with soft carbonation. Flavour is sweet with roasted malts and cocoa, coffee and muscovado, as well as some hoppy orange peel and some smallish notes of alcohol in the finish.

@basunen: trevlig arrakdoft. Smaken är fyllig, lagom oljig, fin balans. Något torr efterton.

(Bottle) Dark ruby colour with brief, bubbly head. Malty, fruity nose with dried fruit, red berries, black-currant, caramel, port wine and oak wood. Malty, fruity taste with notes of caramel, red fruit, raspberries, black-currant, raisins, cherries in brandy, port wine, a touch of sweet liquorice and oak wood. Sweet, vinous finish with a slightly spicy bitterness. Full body. Warming alcohol glow shining through. Not really balanced, but very tasty and nice.
