3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a very murky brown. Huge cream-colored head that drops a little and leaves a nice lacing. Very murky.
Sour. Little bit of maltiness. Not much nose to this one, which is strange considering the cranberries and oak that is purported to be in here.
Very bourbony. Little tart. Sweet with malt. The cranberries start coming out after drinking for a bit and the oak (read: bourbon flavor) starts to mellow.
Cloying. Not much, but the sugar sticks to the corner of your mouth and you have to lick it off every now and then. The oakiness starts out heavy, but mellows as you get used to it, but the tart from cranberries picks up where the oak leaves off.
Not bad. The oak seems to stick around in your mouth for a bit afterwards. But you can’t ding a beer for that when it’s in the name.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
[@ Öl och whiskymässan, Malmö] Grumlig orange kropp. Väldigt fruktig och syrlig aroma. Smaken bjöd på en enorm syrlighet och tranbärssaft. Killen som hällde upp ölen förklarade att de bryggt en kraftig stout och sen blandat den med tranbärsjuice?!

50 cl bottle from Bieropholie, cool, tulip. Murky mahogany with a small tan head. Smoke, tangy fruitiness, some oak, dark dried fruits, brown sugar, toffee notes, a touch spicy, nice. Medium + body, soft effervescence. Smoke, fruits, brown sugar, light wood notes, fairly tangy, not great; off dry with gentle bitterness and a malty, tangy fruit finish. Not sure if it is infected or like this on purpose.
