3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. It pours an unclear amber body under a small, off-white to light beige head. The aroma is toffee-ish, almost butterscotchy, with wood, vanilla, roasted notes and dark sugar. It’s semi-sweet and warming on the palate, with a soft and low level of carbonation. Nougat, caramel, wood, dark sugar and some chocolate in the flavor. Sweet, caramel finish with wood and some booze. Chocolate notes, and some nougat. A decent one, but a bit messy and warming. 140927

Flaske delt med dårlige venner på Sigmunds hytte, april-14: ufrisk malt- og maltsødme i aromaen. Heldigvis smaker den bedre, men dette var ikke noe jeg vil kjøpe igjen.
