COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

Malty aroma with hints of barrel, dried fruit, toffee, straw and honey.
This beer has half aged in oak barrels previously used to store Scotch whiskey from Islay, and the other half on bourbon. Bourbon casks ’seasoned’ with Marsala from Italy,

TheJestersBeer (2060) - SWEDEN - MAY 11, 2014
330ml bottle. Oaky, quite smokey, spicy aroma, caramel, peat, drief fruit, vanilla, butter. Off-dry, medium body, low to medium bitterness, slightly low CO2. Spicy, smokey, oaked taste, vanilla, caramel, dill, butterscotch, fudge, apricot, hints of hops and cardboard, peat, iodine. Quite nice layers of different flavours going on here, the Marsala notes interact decently with the smoke. But - the sugary, cloying sweetness of the beer clashes with everything else in the beer. Two mouthfuls, and the rest is poured in the sink. (2014-05-11)

Bottled. Pours amber with a huge white head. Smells whiskey, bread malty, a bit perfume. Tastes sharp bread malty, a bit sweet with a similar finish.

One of the worst I’ve ever tried. Like making out with a smoker. Taste of ashtray and disgusting bitterness.

Att det här är Karlsson’s choice och inte mitt är en distinktion att vårda. Inte för att dra denna karls tillräknelighet i tvivelsmål, men ibland väljer man helt enkelt fel. Låt oss hellre fria än fälla. Alla begår misstag ibland. Förhoppningsvis har Karlsson lärt sig sin läxa och slutar upp med det här ofoget att välja öl åt oss. Det finns säkert något annat du har talang för. Sofiero kanske behöver en slasktratt?

A scent of dried fruit. The taste is a mix of dried fruit, oak and light alcohol taste. Maybe I’m not entirely impressed but okay to drink. Quite refreshing but bad after taste that disappears quickly. The last beer I drink in 2013. Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.

Färgen är klar guldig med mellanstort ljust skum! Doft av vanilj? Och unket! Smakar rökmalt och inte speciellt bra! Såg ut som att det var såpa i flaskan, 3 st lager som fastnade i flaskan!

Bottled from Systembolaget Clear golden with a small, white head. Slightly vinous aroma with some vanilla and oak. A lot of wood in the flavour along with some vanilla and coco-nut. Medium, rath harsh bitterness.

Probably the worst beer Ive tried. Tasted like an ashtray and I couldnt finish it. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
