Bottle at 3 Små Rum, gift from Reza. Thanks man, you’re the best! Deep dark brown body, thin light brown head. Aroma of dark fruits, whisky, roast, vanilla. Good complex taste, of coffee, chocolate, raisins, honey, whiskey, nuts and light spices. Really nice. Good viscous body and a nice lasting warm and bitter finish.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Thanks to Travlr for bringing this. Pours dark murky brown with no head. Aroma has a barrel aged quality with smoked malts, whiskey, raisins, figs, toffee, vanilla, chocolate and brown sugar. Taste is dry alcohol, chocolate, smoke, toffee, vanilla, figs, raisins, brown sugar and lots of barrel. Too dominating.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Botle courtesy of Nisse666 via travlr. Murky brown color with a small light brown head. Aroma is high on bourbon barrel and vanilla. What shines through from the base beer is mostly dark fruits, brown sugar and chocolate - it’s kind of muted by the bourbon, which is the only thing I don’t like about the aroma. The taste is also very barrel forward with bourbon and vanilla, but also a spicy hint of cinnamon and a good roasted body with chocolate and some roasty astringency. Good beer, but I think the barrel is too overpowering and i don’t like the astringency.

2.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
500mL thanks to Travlr. Mislabeled batch picked up in Norway. Hazy to clear mahogany. Medium to weak tan foam. Weak retention. Nose is 100% acetaldehyde and oxidation. Big oxidized apple slices. Yuck. Taste is smokey and meaty with thicker spiced sausage. Interesting stuff. I like the taste. Some smoked almond. Nose volatiles fade away to reveal smokehouse almonds and cinnamon. Partially redeeming. Too bad the aroma is just too much acetaldehyde.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle shared by the owner of 3 Sma Rum, Goteberg - Thanks a lot for this rare treat! Pours brown with a tan head. Smell is like Christmas! Heavy aromas of spice, overripe fruit and rum. Flavour is sweet and like a mellow balanced version of the aroma, with a nice bit of vanilla added. Carbonation is low and the body is full. Really enjoyed this beer which I’ll probably never have the chance to try again.
