Glass at Monkeys. Pours a clear, ruby/caramel with a glad finger of off white head that sticks nicely. Aroma has great notes of wood, resin, mild pine and citrus, and a touch of bready caramel. Taste is bitter but balanced with great sweetness. Resin, wood, touch of pine, citrus, caramel, and a bit of spicyness. Medium-full body with a medium carbonation. A bit resiny in the mouth with a dry, woody finish. Overall really nice. Big woody notes with a well rounded resin, pine, citrus, and caramel.

750ml bottle - contained within a nicely packaged box. Poured a deeper amber color with an off white head. Cedar (which came out more and more as it opened up), caramel, citrus, toffee, and some spicy rye. Grew on me as I let it sit and drank more.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle 75 cl. Pours a clear, reddish amber with a small, off-white head. Intense cedar aroma mixing in with some toffee. Doesn’t appear particularly heavy in spite of the 10,1%. But quite some caramel and the cedar is there throughout being very dominant, but I love cedar so... Nice one. 130515

3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours dark reddish brown, with rocky tan head.
Aroma is high: cedar, camphor, caramel, vanilla, honey.
Taste is incredibly bitter, unbalanced and harsh, with an aftertaste in which camphor obliterates everything else.
Maybe it’ll improve letting it rest in the bottle for a year or more, now is too aggressive.
