omhper (19187) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - OCT 25, 2013
Bottled, from Systembolaget. Near black, small head. Chocolaty nose with vanilla and bourbon. Mid sweet with full body and soft mouthfeel. Relaxed and harmonious with tobacco and chocolate, and interesting oak flavours. Deep and full of character. Glad to see this excellent brewer attempting a style of beer that can get him to the top percentiles.

Bottled 500ml @Per 2013 vintage
Dark opaque black color, small brown head. Toasty notes, some bourbon-vanilla. Medium to full bodied. Sticky, some coffee, lots of vanilla. Good beer but lacks something from real high points. Perhaps a bit too sweet.
