3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from ABC Beers, Dean Haag. Poured a deep mahogany colour with no head and no life at all. The aroma is rich, alcoholic and peaty. The flavour is strong bitter, with a rich alcohol, liqourice, roasted malt and coffee palate. It’s a super beer no doubt, but this one is more than a year old and i’m surprised it had no life at all, but the flavour was unaffected by spending a year in my cellar.

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.
