4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottled (from Ölkonsortiet). Very deep ambery brown colour, close to opaque, small beigeish brown head. Aroma is plum, some raisins, mild nuttyness as well as some winelike notes. Also some mild spicyness. Flavour is mildly toasted, some raisins, nuts, smoked wood as well as some rather plummy notes. As it warms up it gets more wooden and vanillaish. Brutally nice. Quite different from the other Barrel Aged Little Korknys... More? Yes please.

4.7 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
(on bottle) This might be one of the best BWs I´ve had. Very complex and smooth, the mix of heavy beer and the port is present in such a fine aroma; I could snif the whole bottle dry, did I not have such a weak personality. Tart woody notes, soft with vanilla, wet leather, and fresh figs, combined with he rich maly and robust alcohol is great. Just a slight carbonation to swrl all the goodiness up. Draw a thick curtain of lacing on the glass, the taste is also hols liqouríce, some dried fruits; over al, a more heavy profile, wich the alcoholwarmth really compliments beautifully. Long and warm finish, some tobaco and more leather/port It´s simply a gem of a beer.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle shared by Max- Thanks! Pours a deep muddy brown with a thinning head. Aroma is oxidized already, fairly woody and earthy with some slight sweet wine notes, cognac, soy and meaty oxidation- almost pork or pig like- ham, some bacon in there as well- some sugary sweetness, and slight maple sweetness/oxidation with figs, and other dried sweet fruits. Flavor is more sweetness, maple, honey, soy, ox saltiness, meat, raisin, fig, deep toasted and stewed malts, caramel, toffee, molasses, plums, brown sugar, soy and slight papery oxidation. THe barrel aging really sped up the aging of this beer such that it seemed over 10 years old already. Not bad.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Max. Big, sweet, lightly port, oxidized aroma, a lot of grape, malt, beet sugar. Strong, very flavorful, I guess, some metal and sherry oxidation notes, decently drinkable, heavy but not too rough. A tad boozy. A decent experiment, better than most.
