On tap at CBC 2012. Beer in the glass deep black, small head. Chocolate-malty aroma. Starts earthy-malty, strong, soft chocolate notes. Finish warming-malty, a bit alcoholic, but well balanced. Great beer!

Wonderful aroma and flavor. Then the long aftertaste of coffee does not do this beer worse. Cruel beer should be enjoyed. Follow me @ Kung av öl / King of Beer @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled, febr 2012. Black color, medium lasting brown head. Aroma of chocolat, coffee, bit grainy, hint of grapes, molasses. Apart from the barrel aging, it does have some similarities to a certain Double Oatmeal Stout. I noticed on the label there should be some barrel aging, although it was hard to find out what kind. Not bourbon or peated whisky, more mellow and now that I see ratebeer, it’s speyside whisky. Ok, fair enough. In taste it’s quite dry, some wood and quite boozy. A bit too boozy actually. I can recall I said that about the H&V misto as well, but this one has aged for over a year, so it cant be that it’s too fresh. It’s just too boozy.

Bottle courtesy of Colin. Dark brown pour with a tan head. Whiskey aromas. Effervescent and maybe a little over carbonated. Dark roasted malts, whiskey, and coco notes. Good lacing and mouthfeel.
