Aroma is fruity with strawberries and hints of roastiness. Flavour is somewhat hoppy and slightly tart with vanilla, bourbon and some roastiness. Nice, much more character than in the cognag version.

mjs (4584) - Helsinki, FINLAND - DEC 13, 2011
(Draught at Pikkulintu, 20111213) The beer poured almost black and clear. Its head was medium sized and light brown. Aroma had whisky, vanilla and hint of roasted malts in the background. Palate was medium bodied and dry with medium carbonation. Flavours were vanilla, whisky, ash, roastedness and bitterness. Aftertaste had vanilla, roasted malts and bitterness. Initially the barrel hid the beer flavours and aromas but when the beer warmed up it was more balanced.

Svesse (6137) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - OCT 30, 2011
(Draught at Stockholm Beer Festival, 7 Oct 2011) Black colour with foamy, pale brown head. Malty, roasted nose with toasty malt, dried fruit, raisins, oaky bourbon aromas and a touch of vanilla. Malty, roasted taste with notes of dark chocolate, coffee, mild flavours of bourbon and vanilla, and a fairly dry finish with a generous coffee bitterness. Medium body. Excellent beer with a well balanced wood character.

olsvammel (3063) - Örebro, SWEDEN - OCT 25, 2011
On tap at SBWF 2011. It poured a dark brown liquid with a pale brown head. Lots of wood and whisky on the nose. Chocolate and dark malts. Milder taste. My personal favorite amongst the Svart versions.
