Rune (8497) - Tromsø, NORWAY - DEC 16, 2014
Corked, not easy to open the 375ml bottle. No.623/4400, bought at Vinmonopolet Vika three years ago. Bright naked surface to a deep dark ruby coloured body. Aroma of dark fruits and wood. Taste profile of prunes, figs and sweet dark malts. Malt bitter ending with a discreet touch of whisky. Well rounded on the swallow. Slow sipper, perfect for sharing (shared with Finn, Tromsø 10.12.2014).

Bottle with Pat and Ben. A bit murky dark red brown colour with a tan head. Aroma is caramel, toffee, some spices, tobacco, woody. Flavour is sweet initially with caramel, wood, raisins, prunes, alcohol, liquorice, perhaps some whisky. Body is medium. Whisky is downplayed and on the whole this is well balanced.

kraddel (3624) - some beerplace, BELGIUM - JUN 30, 2014
Bottle 1581 at home . Pours dark brown , muddy , clear, but to dark to see trough . No foam at all . Smell is sweet, woody , sharp . Taste is sweet, yet very sharp, touch of whiskey . malty, sweet back . Body is way to thin to join in with these tastes and this kind of alcohol, making it have a boozier feeling than it idealy should have had . Carbonation is very low, but working for this beer .

TheJestersBeer (2138) - SWEDEN - MAY 22, 2014
375ml bottle, #2835/4400. Pours a deep, almost clear mahogany brown, with very little head. Complex, quite developed aroma, dark chocolate, licorice, wod, vanilla, dried fruits, prunes, earth, coffee, dark berries, hints of smoke. Semi-sweet, full bodied, mid to high bitterness, low (no?) CO2. Complex, mature, balanced taste, dark fruit, chocolate, rasted malt, wisps of smoke, coffee beans, licorice, earth, wood, vanilla, tannins, tobacco. Long finish, the wood and high alcohol have become very well integrated, I’m glad I left this a few years in the cellar Really nice. (2014-05-22)
