Stor smag af modne blommer der slutter af med en anelse varme fra alkoholen. En rigtig nyde-øl.

12/08/2015 - 33cl bottle @Erwin’s platform on the Schelde. Thanks for sharing. Great evening
Hazy brown, lots of particles, little head. Fruity, some wood, caramel. Taste is softer than dirty bastard but mouthfeel is nicer, a bit thicker. Some wood notes, vanilla, a bit port.

330ml bottle from Stori Beer & Wine, Bala. Pours deep rosy mahogany. Aroma is rich sweet malt. Taste is rich and complex with an intense, warming malt that refuses to let the booziness take the reigns. Impeccable, delicious old ale.

2.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
Reddish amber, thin uniform head. Plum aroma, very sweet. A bit overmalted, needs more balance...too sweet, fruity, mild caramel notes, no defined finish. I was waiting for something to turn the corner, didn?t.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
(355ml 2015 bottle from Systembolaget) Pours a clear dark amber-red with just a few white bubbles. Aroma only moderately strong, caramel and brown sugar maltiness, clove, cinnamon, fruitcake, vanilla oak, hints of stewed dates/plums. Flavour sweet, brown sugar, toffee, vanilla, dates, golden raisins, some spices and oak. Dries a fair bit at the finish, bitter, woody, with a bite from a bit of hops and some alcohol. Fairly light bodied with very soft carbonation. A fairly sweet but quite oaky strong ale, but not rich or unctuous like a barley wine or even like many old ales.
