COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is the fusion of young and old, grain and fruit, tradition and innovation. We skillfully blended this vintage from our Old Ale matured in barrels previously used to age Somerset Cider Brandy. The result is stunning - a drink of huge depth and complexity.

Holmen1 (2467) - Stavanger, NORWAY - SEP 5, 2014
Flaske delt på på RBDH-samlingen hos Asle Bjørn: brunsvart, så og si uten skum. Rund aroma og smak med kaffe, rosiner, sjokolade og brandy. Nesten ingen karbonering. Servert for kald, så vi lot den temperere seg i glassene. Smaksrik og kompleks. Nydelig, selv om den er praktisk talt helt uten kullsyre.

abemorsten (2767) - Mosterøy, NORWAY - AUG 30, 2014
Shared bottle during RBHD Mosterøl gathering. Raisins, vanilla and oak on the nose initially but liquorice emerge as it heats. Liquorice and coffee. Sweet flavor. Full bodied, flat and alco warm and with a nice roasted finish.

Sigmund (5119) - Tau, NORWAY - AUG 30, 2014
Shared 660 ml bottle at local tasting. Very dark brown colour, nearly black, minimal tan head. Vinous aroma, notes of oak, hints of cider and calvados. Mild roasty notes in the background. Minimal carbonation. Warming mouthfeel. Very oaky flavour, roasty chocolate notes with hints of cider and calvados. Nice, but a little more carbonation would be an advantage.

Rune (8047) - Tromsø, NORWAY - AUG 30, 2014
660ml bottle, vintage 2012, bought at Vinmonopolet Vika and shared with friends back home. Deep dark ruby coloured body. Moderate, fawn-coloured head, leaving clinging spotty lace behind. Inviting aromas of chocolate, earth, and apples. Just a very pleasant confectionery taste on a backbone of oak and apples. Dried bitter fruity hints towards the ending. Integrated alcohol. Velvety in the mouth. Lovely (Tromsø 23.08.2014).

Finn (4201) - Tromsø, NORWAY - AUG 24, 2014
Flaske 660ml spandert av Rune under sammenkomst hjemme hos ham 23 Aug 14. Svart. Lavt, litt farget skum. Svakt syrlig aroma. Innholdsrik smak. Starter med et snev av cider men blir raskt dominert av lakris & sjokolade. Hint av lær i avslutninga. Direkte behagelig øl!

esp0r (1980) - NORWAY - AUG 17, 2014
Bottle from Vika enjoyed at home
Pours dark, almost black in glass, thin brown head. Smell of funk, apple, some kind of brandy, dark malts. Moderate sweet, oaky, some boozes tendensies, and a maltbase that adds some dark fruits. On top of this lies a pleasent apple flavor, just blending in white the more heavy flavors. A tiny hint of funk is there but not as present as in the aroma. Ends off with a medium to heavy bitter finish with fruit peel and a hint of tannin, Very cool beer; i think it’s a blast!

Benzai (8227) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - AUG 17, 2014
Bottle shared at RBESG 2014 Grand Tasting. Opaque black color, decent sized beige to light brown head. Smell and taste malts, a little sweetness, a hint of alcohol, slightly roast. Decent stout! Nothing special. Medium body and carbonation.
