4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Rating a bottle of Fruet as this seems to be aliased. Pours brown with a short head. Nice bourbon, chocolate and toffee aroma. Lovely taste with all of the aroma elements but adding a generous helping of dark fruitiness. Alcohol heat lurking but not oppressive; fairly drinkable for the ABV. Very nice old ale that seems to walk the line between imperial stout and barley wine.

Doft: spritig. Smak: socker söt. Har en spritig eftersmak. Ölen är välbalanserad efter spriten, man känner att den är stark men på ett retande sätt. En tung öl med goda förutsättningar.

Bottle courtesy of rlgk. Pours dark chestnut brown with a small goldenish brown head that quickly dissipates without leaving much trace on the glass. Smell is sweet and malty with caramel, biscuits, sweet indonesian soy sauce, cocoa powder, charred wood, vanilla fudge, shredded coconut, caramelized almonds, hay, liquorice fudge and hints of moist soil. Taste is sweet, slightly bitter and heavy malty with caramel, biscuits, raisins, prunes, vanilla fudge, alcohol, shredded coconut, caramelized almonds, hay, butterscotch hard candy, bourbon, charred wood and hints of soil. Mouthfeel is round, soft, slightly sticky sweet, boozy and near full bodied.

HMOG 2014 donation. A little much on the alcohol still. Definitely needed to split this with someone and thanks to HMOG for giving me the venue to do that. A little spice on the finish not before a an alcohol burn though. Soy sauce in the aroma. Red fruit plum and soy sauce again in the flavor.
