Lilja (2839) - Malmö, SWEDEN - NOV 24, 2012
Smak och doft av trä, whiskey, karamell, honung, torkad frukt och en aning rök. Väldigt god, alkoholen döljs väl med de andra smakerna men det saknas kropp och fyllighet.

Vignale (3374) - Malmö, SWEDEN - NOV 21, 2012
Flaska från SB. Kopparfärgad, inget skum. Lätt rökig och träig whiskeydoft, apelsin, caramel och fruktig lowland whiskey. Kroppen är förvånande lätt och alkoholen välgömd, har svårt att tro att den är 9,3%. Söta maltsmaker, liten rökighet, torkad frukt, honung, karamell. Känns ändå lite platt och smakerna saknar fyllighet. Okej men liten besvikelse.

Dark brown color, almost black; it has a very low carbonation, and therefore the head is small, creamy, of which only a few bubbles persist. The aroma is mild but interesting, with a balanced blend of caramel, treacle, malt, roasted malt, a hint of firewood and dark chocolate.
It’s full bodied, and round, thanks to the low carbonation too; it’s defined by the brewer as "Scottish Barley Wine", but it’s not as sweet and rich as a Barley Wine; it has a quite good flavor of dark caramel with light smoke; the bitterness is relatively low, and the final rather short.
Good, but it lacks of depth, that could acquire with just a bit more of bitterness or malt.

Deep brown pour. The aroma is kind of sweet and a little bit earthy. Some estery sort of dirty character. A little bit of smokey yeast. Sweet and softly chewy. Meh. Not really my bag. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

jookos (5604) - FINLAND - NOV 12, 2012
Bottle. Dark mahogny red, clear. Not much carbonation. Nose has sweetish, caramel, dark plums raisins. Almost port- like, but not quite. Body is full, thickish. Some sweetness. Malts. Some roastedness. Caramel. Dark syrup. A heavy beer, but with lots of flavors. A bit too much for me though.

Tastes great and strange smells great and something special. The aftertaste is left long. Good beer, but I have a little hard for it. For some good reason.
