3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Flaske 355ml spandert av Rune under romjulslunsj i WC-veien 30 Des 15. Ultradyp mørk amber. Lett syrlig bæraroma. Filmskum. Smaken balansert. Plommer. Syrligheten holder seg men er ikke påtrengende. Svakt tørr avslutning. Er det alkoholen som skinner gjennom? Ellers merkes den ikke.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
355ml corked and caged bottle bought at Vinmonopolet Vika about a year ago. A beige head reduced to a stable layer. Dark ruby coloured body, slightly hazy. Spotty lacing. Dry and tart nose, berries acidity and wood. Mid-tart berries to the taste buds joined by oak and raisin. Sweet and tart ending, long-lived. Full bodied. Likable and suitable with the Christmas pudding (shared with Finn and Vegard at romjulslunsj, Tromsø 30.12.2015).

Bottle. Muddy brown body with a small beige head. Aroma of oak, fruit, toasted malt, alcohol notes. Taste of dried fruit, lime, spicy yeast, mild sour cherry note. Good complexity with layers of fruits. Sweet start with a dry finish. Nice.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
December 23, 2015 - bottle from Total Wine. Brown pour with some nice head, huge pop after taking out the cork. Aroma was malty, sweet, wood and some spice. Taste was a bit weird, had some of the sweetness, wood and spice, but the tequila was very strong and didn’t blend well with the other flavors.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours clear, deep brown with low, nearly flat, light tan head. Aroma of tequila, cedar wood, citrus, toffee, alcohol. Taste is initial mild tart with tequila barrel notes before the sourness builds into the finish. Lingering alcohol sweetness. Body is rich and somewhat sticky with soft carbonation.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Wow this is agressive. Aroma of prune juice, honey, pumpernickle loaf soaked in grape juice. Taste is very sweet mild tartness and really heavy on raisins. Overwhelming and aggressive but does get smoother as it warms.

UPDATED: DEC 1, 2015 Nose sweet caramel sweet tequila agave vegetal notes. Light toffee. Taste slightly acidic and slightly salty. Sweet caramel, slightly vegetal. Finish vegetal sweet caramel. Quite different. Not sure if it’s in a good way. Interesting but not something I’d buy again.
