Draft at Borefts 2013. Pours very dark brown with a small brown head. Aroma has chocolate, roast, alcohol and quite some whiskey. Taste also has quite a lot of whiskey, alcohol and some chocolate. Think the original is brilliant and the barrel ageing does not improve it for me, since I’m not the biggest whiskey fan.
