3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
A wonderful concoction.
Smells sweet, with molasses and a hint of toffee. Tastes very sweet, with a small bitterness, and a feeling of honey. Some dark berries, a black currant perhaps. Texture is silky. Mildly cloying finish. Very little carbonation.
I could drink this as a desert for quite some time...

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled. Poured very near black with just about no head sticking around. The aroma picked up toasty, slightly burnt, excellent whiskey over dark chocolate, ashy malts, and some licorice.. quite nice. The flavor found more sweet-ish whiskey, oak, and deep vanilla notes than anything else, with a bed of rich chocolates and charred black malts beneath.. back to the tasty whiskey over chocolate and a kiss of vanilla bean on the long, peppery finish. Medium-plus bodied with very little carbonation on the palate.. kind of a slick feel to it.. some very good components, but the barrel didn’t fully integrate with the base beer.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Systembolaget.
Pours black. Head is not present, just a small ring of brown lacing around the glass and oily lacing on the surface of the beer.
Aroma has peat, coffee, cream, whiskey, slightly tone of acetone.
Taste is sweet at first with cherries and figs , then roasted malt, some smoke, and a warm and lasting bitter, salty liquorice ending.
Full bodied, smooth and thick mouth feel, low carbonation.
A lot of flavours in this one. Interesting range from sweet, to roasted to the bitter salt liquorice.

Not the best of the White Labels I have had. There is no carbonation, making it flat. Aroma and Taste are as expected: great. flavor doesn’t last as long as I’d expected.

Pours a really dark brown, almost black, with almost no head.
Quite complex, roasted aromas, malt, fudge, chocolate, licorice, oak, vanilla, tar.
Semi-sweet, full bodied, medium bitterness, low CO2.
Roasted, oaky taste, vanilla, malt, coffee beans, licorice, tar, tobacco.
Alcohol gets a bit burning, otherwise quite nicely balanced.
