3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle... Murky, dark brown pour with a tiny, wispy, lightly-tanned head. The aroma is a sticky batch of caramel interwoven with nicely oxidized notes of oloroso sherry, dried plum and fallen apple. Full-bodied and almost chewy with laid-back carbonation. The flavor is full of sweet, malty notes - caramel, burnt marshmallow - alongside vinous, fruity oxidation - sherry and dried plum - with remarkable bitterness to balance everything out, even after seven years in the bottle. Finishes sweet and tangy with an aftertaste of dried plum. Bottle courtesy of Plovmand!

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Vika enjoyed at home
Pours dark dark brown, thin tanned head that falls down quite fast - nice laces. Smells of port, caramel, prunes and dark and delicous malts. Heavy sweet, candice sugar, caramel and hints of liquorice, dry fruits and booze as well. A fantastic rich brew. Can’t really believe that this is not a barrell aged beer - it sure has alot of tastes that can be assositated with it. I’m amazed how well this 6 year old bottle works today
