Bottled (batch 01.01)
Opaque brown color, good steady brown head. Aroma has cocoa powder, coffee and roasted malts with hints of vegetables. Medim to full bodied. Smooth palate. Roasted malty and very coffeish, notes of vegetables and a bit harsh. Probably coffee added, with coffee comes same off-flavors than in De Molen’s Kopi Luwak.

Keg (Pikkulintu, Helsinki)
7 whisky aged aroma, soft and sweet and sticky dark fruits. some alcohol comes over too as it warms.
4 jet black, tiny ring head.
7 not a bold taste, but certainly an interesting one. dominated by a soft burntness, but with lovely whisky hints. Never overpowering.
4 lovely soft palate, carbonation subtle. Given the modern inane trend to stick whisky into beers, this is just gently aged instead. Some freezer ice in the retronasals.
14 Certainly a lovely sipper, but with nothing telling you to slow down. mellow and inviting. I want to go to bed now, despite the fact it’s early.
