Strong alcohol odor. The flavor of bourbon, chocolate and maybe a little dry. The aftertaste is left a little while and it is heavy too. Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.

Bottle, 2012. Pours opaque reddish black with lo and behold a bit of tan head that dissipates quickly to a ring that leaves some lacing. Aroma is chocolate, bourbon, oak, molasses, roasted malts, dates. Flavor is the same, hot as hell, medium sweet, very barrel influenced but not a lot of astringence. Full body, creamy mouthfeel, pretty flat. This is tasty, but too damn hot to be really up there good.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
There's raisin, hints of balsamic vinegar and Chinese soy. Pours it no foam. Well balanced taste, the disappointment lies solely in missing depth of the taste. The taste is simply not as powerful as one would expect, nor is it that complex which leaves us with rather flat ending in the aftertaste.

Pours dark brown with a small head. Aroma is brown sugar, brandy, syrup, toffee, licorice and alcohol. Smooth and oily mouth feel. Dry flavour of char coal, brandy, oak cask, toffee and alcohol. Pretty good, but just a liiitle bit too strong for its own good.
