Dark, strong and malty. Seemed little out of balance with noticeable alcohol burn. Otherwise, full, deep and satisfying.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a deep cherry-wood into the glass, with amber-fringed hues. A reductive wispy head ensues, with trace lacing left over. The nose is of caramel and fruit/nut bread. Deep caramel and toffee, plums, sweet dark-pitted fruits, dates, and some light chalky pepper to finish. The ABV is noted, but well-integrated and never takes over. Substantial, yet smooth to the palate, this brew really opens up as it warms, where notes of oak and whiskey add to the complexity. A nice sipper for an aperitif or nightcap, definitely! Very nicely put together and enjoyable, reminiscent of a good cognac. Will have again!

bomber - nose is toffee/caramel (sweet). Sip adds booze, grass, roast, and more grass. Nose as sweet as the style suggest nor the nose. A little flat, but the roasted malt presence was a nice surprise.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle 65 cl from Systembolaget. Clear light mahogany with a white head. Caramel, red berries, red apples, some fruity sweetness, slight red wine/tartness. Lots of fudge, nice bitterness, some sweetness. Medium/full body, generous carbonation, bitter finish with fruity notes. Very interesting and nice flavours and aromas, but a bit too heavy body for me personally.
