COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Pasteurised bottle.
Ingredients: Optic malt; chocolate malt; Goldings hops.
The pasteurised beer is sent to the Glenfiddich distillery and used to seal American white oak barrels; and then transferred to a marrying tun where the barrels are blended. The bottled beer is stored for a month before being distributed to shops. The period spent in the barrel, then the marrying tun and then the bottle gives the beer the name "Triple Matured".

Bought this from Systembolaget when it was available and tried it with some of the other special releases. I have a hard time with the butterscotch which i think is dominating these beers, there’s also problems with all the ’special-editions’ which in my opinion are all pretty much alike. This particular one i thought didn’t stand up to the wood all that well.

Pours a clear brown with a fair white ring around the glass. Aroma is roasted malts, subtle chocolate, oak, vanilla and some notes of scotch. Flavour is chocolate, oak, vanilla, scotch qualities, mildly bitter and some alcohol. Lovin it!

Pours a clear dark amber with a small off white ring. Aroma of vanilla, oak, sweet floral notes and toffee candy. Taste is vanilla, oak, chocolate and finishes with a nice smooth scotch alcohol warmth. Slick and velvety on the mouth, excellent oak barrel aged beer.

Sampled at the International Great Beer Expo, Rock Hill, NY. Definitely my favorite of the afternoon. Pours a dark, tea like color. Very small head but good lacing. Very strong but pleasant aroma of malt and a hint of vanilla. Very smooth tasting. A hint of bourbon and possibly vanilla. I can’t stress how much I liked this beer. This cannot be compared to traditional brews of any sort. It has a full mouthfeel and definitely not a session beer. A great beer for one or two on a cold night.

33 cl bottle @ Turtola. Rated on 03.09.2010
Vertical with Rum Cask & Original. This one placed last.
Aroma is sweet with toffee, oaky notes, rum and hints of vanilla. Flavour has rather intensive rum and oaky notes. Also some toffee and vanilla. Too strong on oak and rum, not my thing.

Very nice mellow deep beer. Not too thick or concentrated but some nice vanilla a toffee notes. Tiny head and low carbonation. Beautiful clear amber drink. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
