NordicV (1000) - Malmö, Sweden, - MAY 23, 2012
At Monk´s Wallingatan. Been matured in kegs from the swedish whiskymakers Mackmyra. Pitch black with only a faint tan foam. A nose with everything you could wish for. Oak, peaty whiskey, tones of roasted malts. The staff says that the whisky elements in the beer has grown bigger over time. Since its a really good strong porter as a base the whiskey don´t take over. You get a light whiskytouch in the taste, vanilla, and roasted coconut.

The last botte at Wallingatan. The bar tender said he could have sold it at twice it’s already exorbitant price! Abv is 9.5%. Opaque dark brown beer, little tan head. Palate is soft and fairly airy, semi dry. Smooth dark malt - trace of marmite. Nice touch of mellow wood. A little malt cream. Mild and unsweet dark chocolate. Good stuff - thick and tasty!

Draught @ SBWF’12

Pours pitch black with a nice brown head. Aroma of roasty malts, vanilla, oak, bourbon, hints of sweet syrup and hops. Taste is sweet and roasty with lots of bourbony notes, hints of vanilla, oak, syrup and wood. Finish is sweetish with a lot of vanilla oaky woody notes. Nice, surprisingly well balanced despite the massive woody notes.

omhper (18960) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - MAY 19, 2012
Draught at the brewpub. Pitch black with small pale brown head. Oaky nose with where tobacco and chocolate joins licorice and vanilla. Full bodied with soft mouthfeel. Earthy with some Highland whisky. Long warming salmiaky finish. Somewhat oily, but with great balance amongst the rather intense flavours.
