3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap @ Copenhagen Beer Celebration, cheers to Meilby the tapmeister! ;-) Deep nut brown body, small off-white head. Aroma is dark fruits, oak, cognac, booze, vanilla, hints of smoke and dark malts in the back. The smokiness seems very much subdued compared to the regular version. Taste is booze, heavy dry oak tones, smoke and cured ham. Hints of cognac and dark malts. Intensely oaked; in fact this may be the most wood-marked beer I’ve ever had. A fun experience, and another tasty beer from Nøgne Ø.
