Thanks to Rune for a great christmas present. Beautiful dark, caramel foam with a dark forceful color. Powerful. A smell of vanilla, coffee and smoke. A delicious sweetness to the taste throughout the mouth. I can also taste the coffee and the smoke. Rich balance and a really smooth finish. Really wonderful. Best beer for a long time.

Poured from a 500ml bottle, thanks to Santa. Notes of bitter chocolate, grain, roasted malts, slight acrid character from the roasted malts. A really nice stout that is prepping me for the Alaskan barley wine festival.

A 2007 bottle in late 2012 - looks great, long head. Plenty of wheat berry, mega raisin fruit and rich deep toffee. Some oxidization. Pretty rich but very drinkable.
