Bottle @ ØlKonsortiet summer shananigans. Aroma has a good barrel character, toasted oak, liquorice, vanilla and dark fruits. Taste has much more maltiness and fullness than the brewmaster’s editions, restrained bourbon character, lots of chocolate and liquorice notes, and somewhat more roasted overall. Nice and mellow.

bottle at home - 2013 vintage. Pours deep dark brown with a small beige head. Huge vanilla bourbon nose, a bit of alcohol as well but not overwhelming nor disturbing. Full body with nice roasted notes, a bit of spice but loads of mellow caramel and burnt notes and a alcoholic finish. Aftertaste is coffee and dark chocolate. One of the nicer versions.
