Bottled@PBF2010. Slightly hazy goldeny amber colour with small white head. Aroma is wood, vanilla, quite white wine like notes as well as some earthy and red berryish notes. Flavour is quite much the same along with some spicyness.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottled, from Systembolaget Regeringsgatan, Stockholm. Hazy bronze colour, small head. Oaky buttery nose. Sweet and full bodied with some funky tartness. Deep, soft buttery malt with evident pppery alcohol and a highly complex array of flavours. There is so much going on that it takes an evening to explore it. Feels well balanced amidst this complexity, though perhaps a bit too sweet. Simply fantastic beer.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle 33 cl. Clear amber golden with no head. Amazing barrel aroma, lots of vanilla and some alcohol. Full-bodied, a little low in carbonation, very fruity while the usual Tripel yeast is very downplayed. Tart and fresh again with lots of wood in the flavour. A very delicately composed beer. 080510

UPDATED: SEP 29, 2010
0.33 l bottle at Petalax Beer Festival 2010. Hazy golden orange color. Dry, tart, perfumed and vinous aroma with lingonberry, vanilla and some tropical fruits. Sweet and tart flavor with toffee, lingonberry, oak, fruity bitterness and vanilla. Dry astringent oaky mouthfeel. Warming palate. Exotic and complex. Strongly oaky but the beer can hold it. This is my second tasting of this beer and now this tasted much better. I’m waiting for the third time.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
6th May 2010. Night cap bottle in my hotel room Copenhagen. Hazy brown beer. Softish palate, light and airy. Softish malt - a little woody and with sweet orange. Some minerals. Finishes soft and dry. Nice job with this barreling - the sweet orangey wine comes through as does a little wood. Would love to try again after a bit of aging.
