3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Yet again another kind gift from Mes and Sim. Poured an amber / dark orange colour with thin off white head. Very nice indeed. Alcohol is noticeable but not always a bad thing. I like to know I’m playing with the big boys sometimes. Plum, raisin, dark fruits, treacle toffee, caramel, really tasty thanks.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Nice, off-white head on top of a dark-amber body. Dark and dried fruits to the nose. Rounded taste of figs, raisin, prunes added by oak vanilla. All the sweetness is partial countered by notes of bitter spices and tangy malts. Smooth on the swallow and mouth-filling (Taster from bottle at European Beer festival, Copenhagen 14.09.2008)

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Oak, bark, vinous, the oakiness giving a dry dimension that’s very fitting. Sweet, dry, sherry-like. I’d like a few bottles and some walnuts..
