3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap. Pours black and opaque with a small, creamy light brown head. A little smoky to the nose - not exactly what I’d expect from a Cognac barreled beer - and then some hard roast. Rich and full body, a little low in carbonatio, sweet roast and then fairly rustic woody accents. Warming alcohol finish. Nice but far from outstanding and not soft and smooth as I would’ve expected considering the barrel. 200412

Cask, småbryggeriernas beer festival, Malmö. What a nose! Close to perfection. Chocolte, honey, cognac in excesses. Smooth in the mouth, filled with chocolate, sweet but a little bitterness and wel roasted malts balances well together with the cognac tones. A fantastic beer.
