4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle #54922 from Party Town.
Poured black color with a minimal brown creamy head that mostly diminished with good lacing. Heavy aroma of caramel, woody and toasted malt. Medium to full body with smooth texture and flat carbonation . Same as the other two, medium to heavy dark woody bourbon flavor with a medium to heavy smoked sweet whiskey finish of moderate duration.
My expectations were met with a complex smooth brew.

330ml bottle (Kaisla, Helsinki)
Jet black, tiny head only when poured from a height, but at least the ring stayed for a while then. Softly whiskyish woody aroma. Beautifully soft palate, very gently carbonated. Massively mellow - so well balanced, the dry woodiness is just perfect. Alcohol completely in check.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
11.2 oz. bottle, pours dark brown / black with a tiny tan head. Aroma is extremely woody, with dry whiskey, burnt malt, and a slight licorice note. Flavour is very dry and woody, with notes of whiskey, dry burnt wood, some licorice, and charred malt. Finishes dry, woody and a bit boozy. Excellent, though I actually prefer the 12, 16 and 18.
