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.
