3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Little bit of a let down. Pours dark, chocolatey brown with a thin offwhite head, specks of lace. Smells subdued, sweet roasted malts, chocolate and some booze. Tastes sweet and chocolatey with roasted malts and some sweet barrel booze that builds towards the finish. Medium body, tries to be full but not quite, ok carbonation.

Bottle courtesy exiled. Orange colored pour. Light carbonation. Aroma is sweet malt, caramelly but remains light. Flavor is sweet but has a sharp element. Peanutty flavor.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle shared by cptnspeed1 (i think)...thanks Brad (I think)! - Pours mahogany with a thin tan head. Nose is molasses, brown sugar, lots of sweet, bready malt--but I don’t smell any of the port barrel. Taste is a little less sweet, with more maltiness and a raisin notes. Big, thick, and slick. This one has the emphasis on the sweet and decadent, but I really hoped for the port to make more of a presence.

Aroma kaffe och chocklad. Smaken likaså men kanske en liten nyans av frukt ?!
