4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
330ml bottle. Pours out dark black with a brown head that quickly vanishes. At first ashy, roasted malt and blackberry fruit comes through in the aroma, followed by whiskey notes. Tastes much the same, with a creamy lactose succulence. Lovely viscous mouthfeel that feels very balanced, and extremely drinkable for the strength. A very nice creation.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
33cl bottle, cellared for a year or so. Pours black with thick tan brown head - looks viscous. Aroma is full of great vanilla, oak, nice fruity whiskey notes, roasted malt, dark chocolate, dark fruitiness, some coffee, light booziness. Cracking aroma. Taste has great depth - multilayered fruity whiskey notes, vanilla, oak barrel stuff, light liquorice, milk chocolate, cocoa, roasted malt, sweet sugary notes. Medium/full mouthfeel. Hardly any booze apparent. Lingering whiskey and chocolate notes. This is a seriously good brew, God bless To Øl.

Black oily with a minimal brown head. Great complex roasted aroma. Wood, alchohol, caramel. All in a very nice balance. Very complex flavor aswell. Salty liquirice, roasted and alchoholic bitterness, great tasty sweetness and a finish you can nip taste for a long time, discovering yet more notes. Great brew.
