25cl from Vinmonopolet, Storo. Pours slightly hazy deep amber with an off-white head. Malty with notes of dried fruits, yeast and hints of alcohol. Sweet, complex and quite balanced. A bit to much on the sweet side, but certainly a decent brew.

Aroma has notes of toasted malts, some molasses, caramel, sweet white wine. Flavor is slightly sweet, with some sour notes, toasted sugar, slightly alcoholic very good hidden by a mild bitterness, notes of molasses.Mild sweet final, not cloying with honey traces and light bitterness.

4oz pour at Churchkey’s Nogne O Tap Takeover. Pours a hazy, caramel amber with a ring of white head. Nose has a lot of caramel, orange, some drying wood pile, caramelized root veg, a little leafy too. Flavor has a lot of barley, heavy corn, whiskey, brandy, raisin. Distinctly starchy. Slick, oily finish. Not my thing.

Draft at Churchkey for meet the brewer event. Poured a clear ruby color without much of a head - though I was drinking off a drink that was poured a while before I showed up. Aroma is boozy, barley wine sweetness. Some light yeast notes. Flavor was booze, light alcohol burn, yeast character reminiscent of sake. Toffee, caramel.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at home. Has a slightly hazy orange brown colour with a small, ivory head. A complex and sweet aroma with tones of oak, dried fruit, smoked meat, leather and some alcohol, hops and wild berries. The flavour is also rich and more sweet. I find brown sugar, leather, wood, warming alcohol and some fennel, Madeira and roasted malt. Has a rich and sticky mouth feel, and a medium bitterness. A powerful and complex beer, and is really one of a kind.

On tap @ Setka Pub, Poznań. Pours hazy dark copper brown with small off-white head. Complex aroma of fruit, malt, caramel and hops. Sweetish, fruity flavour, with malty and caramellish notes, and bittersweet presence of alcohol. Lingering aftertaste of oaken barrels and fruit. Good.

Aroma is a light sweet maltiness with some caramel notes and roastiness. Some fruit aromas pouring through. Taste is a rich malt character paired with a sweet fruitiness that is met with some liquor snap. However for 13.5% it is shocking smooth. Head pours thin with a light brown body.
