4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle. Dark rich black with a brown head that dissipates quickly. Nose is full of vanilla notes and caramel with obvious malt with some moderate toasting. Mouth is overwhelmingly vanilla and saltyness with plenty of maltiness and not a hint of alcohol. Seaweed. Finishes like tortilla chips with salt and a lasting vanilla. Brilliant, if the salty tones are more prominent here

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Flaske. Sort uden noget skum. Kraftige noter af bourbon allerede i duften. Denne går videre i smagen som dog ikke er så en dimensionel som Allagash bourbon lagrede. Måske går imp. stout bedre til whisky fadlagring end den belgiske stil. Den kan dog ikke nå helt op at ringe da den stadig er overvældende meget whisky, men helt klart begynder der sig at tegne en mulighed jeg ville have forsvoret i det gamle år.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: FEB 17, 2008 The aroma has a lot of whiskey but it’s mixed with oak, vanilla and smoke. The flavor is very complex, it has notes whiskey notes, with smoke and oak, but also a bitternes. There is also a warmth from the alcohol, but it’s well-hidden.
