0,33l bottle as gift. Clear, deep golden colored beer with medium, frothy, white head. Basicly alcohol and malt aroma. Some molasses and some wooden flavour also appears. Basicly it’s dry, but the alcohol gives it some sweetness. Light body, slick texture, average carbonation. Alcoholly and dry finish. A classic malty ale with alcohol, malt and liqueur flavour.

Bottle shared at RBWG! Pours a hazy golden orange with a creamy white head and light lacing. Aroma of sweet malts, toffee, caramel, vanilla, a hint of bourbon. Taste follows, medium body, add some light fruitiness and sweet candied sugar. Nothing special.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Flaske. Pours clear golden, with a finger thick head. A lot of things going on in the aroma with roasted caramel malts, toffee and grain on top, as well as some peat and vinous, whisky-like oakiness with honey and heather. Creamy body with soft carbonation. Flavour is sweet and with definite whisky notes of lots of malts and smoke. At first it’s almost nauseating cardboard-ish and buttery grains, but with temperature this fades away for a more balanced and nice long sweet malty finish.
