Nidaros (40) - NORWAY - MAR 17, 2014
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.

Senap (345) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - DEC 20, 2013
En sparad 2012. Fantastiskt hårt skum! Jag upplever det som den här blivit lite råare jämfört med ett år sedan. Rejäl strävhet och beska, mer kaffe än frukt. Nu mer en julklassiker!

Vignale (2035) - Malmö, SWEDEN - DEC 15, 2013
Flaska från SB. Julöl 2012 och alltså drygt ett år gammal. Närmast kolsvart med hög beige skumkrona. Känns på doft att ölet mognat bra. Söt torkad frukt, rostade nötter, madeira kompletterar chokladen, honungen, det mörka sockret och kaffet. Först en fruktig smak med dadlar och fikon med alkoholvärme. Men snart en rejäl beska som starkt kaffe, bitter choklad och aningens chilihetta. Fin rostade smaker bra balans och en maffig beska som aldrig gör det inställsamt. Fantastiskt gott.

ansalon (1343) - Stockholm, SWEDEN, SWEDEN - DEC 5, 2013
2012 edition, cellared for a year. Pours black with a two inch fairly compact tan head. Comparing this head-to-head with the 2013 edition. The aroma just explodes! Lovely deep caramel tones, cognac, figs, dates, spices, honey, burnt sugar. The 2013 by comparison, is somewhat flat yet still good with more hop-centered tones of orange, citrus, peach, and very fresh. Taste then! The 2012 edition is quite fresh, with honey, orange, citrus, figs, caramel, dates, spices. Aftertaste sees some alcoholic notes along with some spices. 2012 one is more deep, with caramel and burnt sugar to the fore, along with honey, muscovado sugar, figs, spices. Aftertaste sees that alcohol again, along with vanilla and slight cocoa notes. Pick several up and cellar. Did not think it would age this well. (Rating reflects a mix of these two).
