3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Systembolaget. Very special smell to this one, it had a strong smell of the chewing gum Jenka. The taste was a bit different with musty dark malts, chocolate and walnuts. Very special beer that I had a hard time rating.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours heavy oily black with a big milk chocolate brown head.
Nice full bodied brew, heavy taste of chcolate and salmiak. Peated, like a lightly whiskey barrel aged brew.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Spicy aroma with notes of salmiak, chewing gum and smoke. Thick and smooth. Complex dark taste with heavy notes of chocolate. Also notes of smoke and salty licorice. Almost got too heavy after a while.

2.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Väldigt mörkt brun med beige skum. Doften domineras av frukttuggummi och tvål. Detta finns även i smaken men inte lika dominerande. Där hittar man även trä och en avslutande lätt bitterhet. Inte alls min typ av öl.

4.8 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Masterful brew - classic Thornbridge: at once both defining and redefining a style. Rich and heady with the honey packing a punch. Not an imperial stout but a clear traditional ale. Not much else to say but this is one of the best english regular beers - file in the same category as VIntage Ale etc.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A bloody excellent UK beer! Pours black with a thick, medium tan head. Aroma is earth, hay, honey, cereal, some dark red fruit. Taste is where it really shines. Opens a bit flat but then picks up. Chocolate, coffee, roasted malt, prunes. Only a touch of bitterness, but more from the bitter honey (?) than from the hops. It's very, very balanced in its character. Finish is super long, with a hint of coffee lingering forever. Incredibly full and rich, yet not overly imposing. Despite its dark character it is very refreshing.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Very dark brown with a pale brown head. Aroma: lots of perfume, spice and soap, also chocolate and alcohol. Flavor: perfumy, sweet, smoke/barnyard, honey, chocolate, alcohol. Bitter and more dry towards the finish. The strong notes of perfume and soap ruined this for me. Disappointing!

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours very dark, almost black, with brown head. Earty aroma with malts, nuttyness, wood and honey. Flavour is roasty and slightly smokey with nice earthy notes and well placed sweetness. Nice notes of chestnuts, chocolatey bitterness, honey sweetness and some salty licorice. Very long lasting aftertaste, a real sipper.

3.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Doften är lite obestemmelig. Men smaken är riktig god. Tjock vätska. Tydelig choklad kaffe lakrits och tjära. Hyfsat lång eftersmak. God och kladdig.
