2009 bottle, I usually age them longer-couldn’t wait. Massive candy-toffee-raison-mint? aroma. Clear and bright, copper colored. Thick and rich with more toffee, substantial bitterness and a warming finish. Very chewy. These flavors will meld and smooth with a little age. A perfect lawnmower beer for a hot summer afternoon.

Amber pour. Heavy malt aromas, bread, caramel and alcohol. Spicy, sweet flavor of caramel and some hops. A long, slight bitter finish with a bit too much alcohol.

Pours a deep amber color, with a two finger off white head that had some staying power. Aromas of hops, sweet malts, and some more hops. Flavor isn’t as sweet as I was led to believe. You can taste the alcohol from the get go, what follows is a nice mellow caramel/brown sugar (I Guess) sweetness that finishes with a nice bitter hop.

Lilja (2608) - Malmö, SWEDEN - MAR 30, 2016
Flaska från SB. Något år gammal. Smak och doft av karamell, smörkola, brunt socker, sirap, torkad frukt som plommon, russin samt övermogen frukt med smak av mango och papaya och honung. Kraftfull, rund och len, stor sötma, välbalanserad och smakrik, fin beska. Gott!

Vignale (3210) - Malmö, SWEDEN - MAR 24, 2016
Flaska från SB. Ca 1 år gammal. Stor söt fruktig doft och smak. Toffee och karamell möter övermogen papaya, mango, persika och nektar. Kanske väl söt och lite mer humle hade väl inte skadat. Men den söta fruktigheten är riktigt fin. Mycket gott.

2015 version, aged just over 1 year. Aroma is toffee, slightly burnt caramel, butterscotch, brown sugar, dark fruit and booze. Very sweet but excellent. See through light amber color with a bright white cap of foam. The taste is sweet up front with a hop bite that follows directly afterward. The bitterness still shows through after a year, this thing must have been a hop bomb fresh. The aftertaste is oaky with a slight booze burn. The palate is great. It is unique because it has sharp carbonation but still coats the mouth. If you’re aging a bottle of this, wait longer than a year. It still had plenty of rough edges when I drunk it.
