4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Fra flaske på Mi2, Cardinal aug-15: nesten helt svart med brunt, kort skum. Vidunderlig drikke fra første til siste dråpe, og har den noe fruktigere aroma enn brandyversjonen som vi hadde for et øyeblikk siden? Vi nærmer oss nirvana, det blir ikke mye bedre enn dette på en mandag. Viskøs, tett og kompleks. Enda et bravo til Lervig!

Oh boy. What a loveley beer. So smooth and so creamy. Great on the nose with whiskey, chees, chocolate and coffee. It?s taste is so complex, so balanced. The flavours alternate beautifully in your mouth. From Whiskey, to Stout and so on. Mocca, iced coffee, chocolate icecream. Yes! Low carbonation, but great!

50cl bottle, 2009 12.7%. Pours black with a nice brown head. Aroma is oustanding with bourbon, sweet fruit, dark dried fruits, coffee, chocolate, wood, vanilla and liquorice. Flavour is sweet and light bitter. Full bodied, oily, soft texture - almost flat. Finish is sweet, warming alcohol and surprisingly complex. Considering the age this is a nice surprise!

Bottle. Opaque deep brown color, tan head. Sweet, oaky arom with some vanilla. Rich, full flavor with whisky notes and cocoa. Very full body, low carbonation. It feels like I’m drinking a Starbucks chocolate coffee or thick cocoa. Both taste good though, so I’m not complaining!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dark inky black pour with one finger of tan head. Intense aroma with charred wood, acidic dark grain and coffee, molasses, and booze. Acidic dark grain and char to a fault. Slick and bitter/acidic notes dominate the flavor. Hot and woody.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
330 ml bottle from Saveur Bière.
Black, oily body, with a small, creamy, coffee colored head.
Aroma of bourbon, coconut, vanilla, coffee, cocoa, wood, liquorice, some tobacco, some alcohol.
Wonderful, balanced, quite dry taste of bourbon, coffee, cocoa, coconut, liquorice, tobacco, booze.
Full, oily mouthfeel, with a soft carbonation.
Finishes roasty, dry, quite alcoholic, a bit astringent, with coffee, dry cocoa, liquorice, some tobacco.
Very tasty. The bourbon isn’t too dominant, very well integrated. Quite strong and dry, with wonderful coffee and tobacco notes, but really smooth at the same time. Although I like the regular Brunch Weasel better, this is also delicious.
