3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Flaska från SB. Väldigt fin stiltypisk doft, klassisk UK BW. Torkad frukt, russin, honung, vanilj, fudge, söt tobak, syltade apelsinskal. Smaken lyfter inte riktigt lika väl, smakerna finns där men lite faddare. Men riktigt gott och en de bäst BW som gjorts i Sverige.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
33 cl bottle @ Pikkulintu, BBE 05/2019. Very sweet aroma with ripe fruits and strong malty tones typical to doppelbocks. Flavour is rather malty with caramel, toffee, some alcohol, ripe fruits and distant woody tones. Something between american strong, barley wine and doppelbock. Sweet, but alcohol brings balance; a nice slow sipper.
