Flaska Bishop Arms Gustav Adolfs Torg i Malmö (vilket utbud. Flera vintage!! BA i GBG ligger efter)
Fantastisk arom, nästan svart!
Tyvärr rumstemperatur , annars hade den nog varit ännu bättre om några grader kallare. Vilken lång rökig eftersmak!!

Nose is smoke, flavor is coal, roasted peanuts, smoked cheese, old wood. Medium to heavy bitter, medium umami, light salt.

3.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle... Pours cloudy and dark brown with no head. Great peat smoke and fudge aroma. Full-bodied with a silky mouthfeel and gentle carbonation. The flavor is crazy-sweet and peaty with alcohol bitterness and warmth, but no scorching alcohol heat. Unfortunately, there is some cardboard here. Finishes sweet, peaty and warming with an unfortunate cardboard aftertaste. Everything is great here except the annoying, overbearingly sweet, peat smoke flavor. Bottle courtesy of MrHangover!

330 ml bottle courtesy of Benzai. Thanks. Pours an opaque black color with a small tan head that soon recedes to a fine ring. The aroma is strong with peat smoke and chocolates. The flavor, like the aroma, is strong with peat and dark baking chocolate. The palate is full and smooth with soft carbonation. Finishes long and dry. Overall: Loved it.
