27th March 2012
Bottle at Amundsens Brewpub, Oslo. Opaque black beer. Big bubbly tan head that vanished very quickly. Smooth dry palate. Tangy dark malt. Dark fruits. A trace of sweeter dried fruits underneath. The cognac barrelling is actually quite light. There is cognac at the finish but the wood is very light and dry. Dry finish. Dark and interesting!
