3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled at Sorbon, Bromma, Stockholm. Opaque black, rich beige head. Fruity nose with vanilla/oak and coffee/licorice. Sweet and full bodied with syrup and coffee as ell as bourbon and molasses. Sugar and bourbon grows to dominate. On the surface it acts just as the top examples of the highly praised concept of bourbon barrel aging dark ales. A closer inspection reveals a stickyness and fruitiness, and it lacks elegance. It is tasty, but still feels like a poor photo copy of a masterpiece.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
18th July 2008. A complex porter with no bitterness or dryness. Smooth chocolatey dark malt with a pleasant sour tang presumably coming from the whiskey. The barreling adds another dimension. A lovely porter that can stand shoulder to shoulder with a lot of RISs out there.
