3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A black beer without head, only brown bubbles. Aroma is very intensive and powerfull, lots of salt liquirice and roastiness, some berries, sweetness and whiskeybarrel. Taste is also powerfull, lots of roastiness, salt liquirice and turf, balanced sweetness. In the afterteste turf and slightly smokey whiskey is more exposed. Surprisingly light to drink, only medium bodied, almost without carbonation. Intensive, beer and barrel are balanced, but still something is missing.

Bottle. Pours black with a partly lasting and medium lacing small creamy tan head. Aroma is roasted malts, brown sugar, licorice, peat, whisky, vanilla, dark fudge, herbs, butter, soy, booze and oak.

Quite pleasant this one. I’ll have to look for the other B.A. versions.
