3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark brown and clear. Has an off-white head, fully diminishing. Aroma of oak, a bit crisp, sweet, sugar, caramel. Heavy sweet flavor, moderate bitter finish. Syrupy texture and soft carbonation. A bit boring.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
(Bottle, 0.25 l, at Pikkulintu) The beer poured really deep dark brown and almost clear. Its head was minusculous and it had light brown shading. Aroma had vanilla, mildly roastedness and noticeable amount of alcohol. Palate was full bodied and dry with low carbonation. Flavours were vanilla, roastedness, vineousness, mildly ash and low carbonation. Aftertaste was vineous. The barrel aging was clearly present in this beer but it was not disturbing. I found it actually quite pleasant - especially the aroma.

250 ml bottle @ Gastropub Nordic. 11% abv, BBE 19.1.2016.
Pours a dark brown colour with a frothy, beige head. Aroma of dark and sweet fruits, raisins and smooth coffee. Flavour of extremely dry oak, dry hops and pleasant roasted malts with dark raisins and coffee. Pleasant mouthfeel, dry and warming. Alcohol comes through too much though. Quite raw and needs aging.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Very good, even, dark-beige head over darkbrown beer with reddish highlights. Alcohol, rum, Bourbon, wood, dark fruit as plums, vanilla. Woody flavours, backed up by aged alcohol & vanilla touches. Wry fruit, fusels, complex. Less well-bodied than expected; alcoholburning, but discreet. Certainly a good, reasonably complex beer, but somewhere, one feels entitled to expect just a tad more for this kind.
