3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
330 ml bottle
Dark brown color. Thin tan collar, touches of lacing. Big, slow ABV legs.
Nose is soft peat, whisky, and oak. Raisins, vanilla, and chocolate compliment it well. Barrel is not as forward as fresh versions and booze is more restrained. Quite a good nose though subtle.
Taste is whisky soaked raisins, peat, oak, vanilla pods, and toffee. Barrel very evident and still boozy. Good though.
Slow sipper. Medium feel, a tad thin but quite tasty. Developing very well.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: JUN 21, 2014 Bottle @ Apotekergaarden, Grimstad. Pours a deep mahogany brown body with a medium creamy off-white head. Nose is vanilla, brown sugar, caramel, booze, brown cheese, hints of grains and toffee. Taste is dark chocolate, caramel, booze, burnt sugar, hints of smoke and wood. Full body, medium to high carbonation. Not bad, but it seems a bit boozy and unbalanced in its sweetness/bitterness ratio compared to the Bridge Road version.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Near clear deep reddish-brown body. A mid-sized tan lace, fading to a ring of bubbles. A refined malty sweetness with fruit tones to the nose, hint of oak and alcohol. Full body, chewy mouthfeel. Big malt base with a rounded sweetness. Alcohol is present, but never disturbing. Wood more noticable in the flavor, comes with a touch of tobacco. Fine tones of dried dark fruits. Balancing bittering hops is lurking under. Long warming, woody and malty-sweet ending. Very enjoyable.

Jeez - chocolate, red wine, whisky... an array of flavours, especially on the way down. (Later in the glass) Ok, the law of diminishing returns kicks in. In the end, it’s a wonderful journey, but one is probably enough.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Tap at Norfolk. Pours murky brown with a small khaki head. Nose shows heavy powdered chocolate with loads of raisins and vanilla. Touch of smokiness with some muscat-like notes coming through. Holy crap it smells enticing. Taste is is complex and utter mouth watering stuff. Thick and sticky caramel and sticky date with heavy raisins and velvety smooth vanilla chocolate. Some tarty berry notes come and go which work superbly. Holy fucking shit this is good. Goes down like a treat with a creamy mouth feel and a kick of heat on the back end which I enjoy. Seriously amazing stuff
