3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
375 ml bottle at home. Pours murcky deep reddish amber with a light beige head. Madeira nose with nuts and raisins, dry plums. Does not have the typical DIPA characteristics at all. Body is quite sweet and peated, bitterness only comes in the back. Slightly better than the straight 1000 IBU.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle @ Mikkeller&Friends. Pours light hazy deep red/brown with a small creamy tan head. Aroma is quite malty, dark fruit, complex and layered caramel, chocolate, raisins, oak, iodine, dark toffee, light peat, brown sugar, pine and citrus. Taste is moderate+ sweet and light bitter. Body is light+, texture is sticky, carbonation is soft. Finishes sweet and warming with whisky and wood. Pretty hard to recognize the base-beer. Interesting to see how much time and barrel aging can change a beer. A nice treat.

2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sample of an out dated bottle and it’s noticeable, I think. Dark brown lour, with no head and no lace. Smell: At first I only noticed alcohol esters and acetone, then whiskey and chocolate. Very low carbonation and light body. Taste of whisky, chocolate and toffee. Not as bitter as aone could think. Guess i’ll try to get another one in good conditions, it’s interesting and it should be much better then.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle: Cloudy, deep chestnut-amber coloured, big beaten-egg-white-like off-white head, sweetish leathery nose with distinctive traces of dried black berries and a "medical" touch; moderate to solid sweet-bitter flavour, full bodied; sherry notes in the sweet toasty and caramelly finish, that is followed by a solid bitterness in the aftertaste. Well balanced heavy brew, but where are the 1000 IBU’s…

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
375 ml bottle. Hazy dark greyish brown. Very coarse small head. Sherry-like peppery aroma. Low carbonation level. Nice hoppy bite mixed with oak and vanilla. Alcohol is definitely noticeable. The aroma is unbalanced and not particularly good, but flavourwise this beer is still pretty good after three years. 1000 IBU is not what I would first think of when drinking this. It’s not that bitter. I would have guessed 50 IBU. Still, it’s a pretty good beer.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Corked 37.5 cl bottle @ home. Pours dark brown with some sediment and an off-white head that leaves a little lacing. Aroma is peat, subtle smoke, iodine, and just a hint of hops. Flavour is peat, smoke, and subtle hops – with a slightly bitter finish. A strange and original beer that is far from the regular 1000 IBU.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a dark brown colour with a beige faint head. Aroma full of caramel, raw sugar, maybe honey and some fruity notes. Complex flavour with wood notes, vanilla, spices and a hint of fresh berries. Medium sweetness, medium bitterness. Full body, sticky mouthfeel, soft carbonation and a dry bitter finish. Excelent brew, but I’m missing all the IBU’s here. I was expecting more bitterness. Still very good and special choice.
