3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
11.2oz Bottle. The pour was a clear dark mahogany brown with an average (1-2 finger) beige fizzy head that was fully diminishing with no lacing to speak of.
The aroma was quite intense with a toasted caramel malt and a sweet earthy yeast with notes of vanilla, rum, dark fruit (raisons and plums) and a light hint of toffee.
The taste was moderately sweet and malty with notes of caramel, vanilla and dark fruit throughout with a nice cask presence and a mild rum alcohol finish. The flavor lasted an average duration after the swallow with a mild boozy taste that faded slowly off the taste buds.
Mouthfeel was just below medium in body with a slight syrupy texture and a mildly soft carbonation.
Overall a fantastic tasting brew with a good sweet rum flavor and a strong malty presence...

Too sweet by far. Too little malt taste. Principal flavors are an excess of artificial oak.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle - pours ruby with a lacy off white head. Definite hit of rum on the nose, sugary malt too. Taste is a bit unremarkable, malt, didn’t get the rum taste. Palate is on the thin side.

Quite good. A bit on the sweet side. Haven’t I’ve been a bit oversensitive on sugar, this might have been a splendid beer. But this was a bit too sweet.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle from Systembolaget. Smell of butter scotch, butter popcorn and just plain butter. Similar taste, buttery with some vanilla. Also some oak and rum. Way to much diacetyl. Not drinkable. How can this get such a high score?
