6 Blind tasting at Papsoe 27-03-2010: Bottle. Small off-white head that mostly diminished. Spare display of lacework. Dark color with a light reddish glow. Aroma of mild roasted malt, dried fruity, light grainy and dusty feel. Over the palate came heavy thick feel of liquorish, molasses, vanilla, Bourbon. Full bodied with a soft carbonation and alcoholic thick texture. Heavy sweet and some bitterness to counter. Lingering warming Bourbon liquorish finish. 8 / 3 / 8 / 4 / 17 = 4.0

Some kind soul brought this to, "hannont" ’s for a tasting. Colour... very dark brown with no head. Nose... Boozeland, USA! Palate... SUH-WEET!! And boozy, with loads of caramel, toffee, butterscotch, dried orchard fruits, golden sirop, burnt brown sugar and a fabulously sweet looooooong finish.
