Draught at En Öl- och Whiskymässa, Gotheburg. From the last keg. Pours black with a huge brown head, some lacings. Aroma is heaven. Soft heaven. Vanilla, bananas, soft tones of whisky and bourbon, oak and cocoa. Taste is silk smooth, with sweet malts, caramel, bourbon tones, vanilla. No real hop character (that would ruin this, I suppose). Low to medium carbo, medium to full body, oily texture. This is a tremendous brew, at least from keg. The brewer said that they will make more when they have time, they don’t want to rush it at the expense of the quality. That’s real craftmanship!

Mörkbrun/svart med mellanstort ljusbrunt skum. Doftar väldigt mycket av fatlagringen med främst whisky doft och choklad! Smaken är fyllig med inslag av choklad, vanilj och ekfat. Provsmakad direkt ur fat!

Bottle shared on the RBWG bus tour. Dark chocolate pour. Aroma is vegetal with plenty of barrel notes. Flavor is oak heavy, like licking a barrel, with drops of soy sauce. Thin body overall.
