Bottle, bought @ Systembolaget.
Pours coppery chestnut with a small, creamy and kinda fizzy off-white head. Aroma has mild dried fruits, toasted caramel, mild toffee and a mild oaky dryness. Low to medium carbonation, kinda light mouthfeel with good dryness. Flavour is quite oaky, nice character from the rum, toffee and good caramel base. Perhaps a bit of oaky astringency as well. Fine beer.

3.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Half Time. Pours an extremely dark ruddy copper with a creamy light tan head. Aroma is musty oak. With a spiritous note. Flavor is a somewhat smokey rum. Astringent oak. Sweet and spicy? Maybe underneath the smoke and oak. There certainly is a strong character to this beer.
