3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle courtesy of Alex. Thanks! Pours almost black and has a great nose on it. Sweet dark roast with layers of nuts, caramel, espresso, and a slight oxidized note that is very appealing. Medium mouthfeel. Flavor follows the nose and is a tasty complex brew. Glad I got to try it.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Mörkbrun nästan svart med ljusbrunt skum! Sjukt mycket olika dofter och smaker som är svårt att sätta fingret på! Men kaffe, choklad och russin! Riktigt bra öl!

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
2012 vintage. Pours pitch black with a frothy mocca coloured head that laces beautifully. Smells of honny, fresh pine and spruce as well as a rounded smell of burnt malts. Taste is much the same as the smell, in adition a slight taste of port and slight oxidation becomes present in the aftertaste. Such a pleasent surprise, great craftsmanship.
