4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle, vintage 2013. Shared by bergstaden. A murky reddish brown beer topped by a small beige head. The aroma has a lovely oxidation, dried fruits, some fresh fruits, peaches, alcohol boozyness, toffee-ish malts, a faint hint of spices and some dark chocolate. It’s full-bodied, warming and smooth on the palate, with loads of flavors. Toffee, dark caramel, booze, wood and dried fruits. Some chocolate hints and nuts and cellar too. Some fruityness too, but in the back. Lasting boozy, caramel finish with fruityness and some notes of almond in the finish. Lovely indeed, very complex and tasteful. 151010
