3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
0.25 l bottle, thanks hanniku! Hazy reddish brown color. Sweet perfurmed and fruity aroma with cloudberry, toffee, wild herbs (wild rosemary). Sweet fruity berry liquer taste with bitter tonic, toffee, prunes, cloudberry and toasted almonds. Good dessert liquer taste. I remeber liking second edition more because of the cleaner sake fruitiness, this version has more stuff masking it.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Vinmonopolet, Norway. Pours burgundy brown, with some carbonation. Smallish head, just a little lacing. Strong aroma of dark fruits, some alcohol, and caramel. Medium mouthfeel. Flavour is very sweet, from caramel malts and dark fruits as well. Warming alcohol in there as well. It’s not out of this world, but very likable for the strength.
