gnoff (7839) - Mölndal, SWEDEN - JAN 24, 2007
(33 cl bottle from Systembolaget) 2006 vintage. Clear deep golden to copper color, huge white head. Lots of dry oak, vanilla and some red wine in the scent. Malt and sweets mixed with a dry oak palate. Dry mouthfeel, rather high mouth puckering bitterness. For me it feels the oak overtakes the beer at a far too high degree. Some marzipan and almonds in there also.
