4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Portion of a 500ml bottle into a Hunahpu’s snifter. From notes.
A: Pours a dark copper color. The head is a one finger cream shade.
S: There’s a lot of sweet caramel and brown sugar which I half expected. What really struck me is the strong vanilla qualities the aroma also provides.
T: This has a lot of vanilla to open the flavor profile. After a bit, raisin/caramel sweetness gives way to a balanced, dry mineral finish. Really pleasant, and complex to boot.
M: I really like the creaminess of this one. The body is of medium texture, and it coats the tongue smoothly.
O: This had a level of richness to it that many of the imperial stouts I had that day lacked. It’s not super easy to drink, and it’s kind of pricey, but it’s a great one to savor slowly.

Bottle 550ml (8% version). Served at room temperature. Pours a hazy burnt copper. Head is large, dense, off white and lasts beautifully in the glass.

Flavour is smooth and vinous, with a very light earthy hop bitterness, port, prunes, raisin toast, rum chocolate, spiced/earthy wood, aniseed (light), and light notes of treacle. Full bodied with soft carbonation, an oily texture and a good length, warming finish.

4.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Drank from a pint glass, poured from a 550ml bottle, brewed in 2009! Super oaky aromas, & raisins. Pours a beautiful deep, dark copper color, with a bit of white head. Super smooth, and light in body. Malt forward, with wonderful flavors of oak. Awesome brew, I need to grab some more of this and condition it longer!

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Deep bronze with nice fine lacing. Fruitcake, tea, some spices, light woodiness, some booze. Taste is medium sweet and tangy with a rich old ale finish and a tangy dryness. If anything the body is little light but a minor point.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Brunröd öl med ett bra beig skum. Doft och smak av karamell, frukter, övermogna och torkade, söt maltighet. Något för söt för min smak.

*Old rating. Intense brown beginning. Dried fruit, smooth malt. Hints of wood sourness. The beer is complex and intense. Cake, dried plums, hints of alcohol. Long and intense malty aftertaste with a moderate bitterness. Great stuff!
