oh6gdx (20902) - Vasa, FINLAND - NOV 21, 2010
Bottled@sayravai tasting. Deep ambery brown colour, small off-white head. Aroma is liquorice, spices, alcohol and stuff. First thing that came to mind was Gouden Carolus. Flavour is quite liquorice, some spices and mild wooden and alcoholic notes. Aroma is actually better than the flavour, which feels it’s still quite young. Still nice.

yngwie (14146) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - NOV 8, 2014
Bottle. As Winter 2013. A dense, finger-thick beige head sits on top of an almost clear, dark amber to brown body. The aroma has a little touch of yeast and dough in the back, with dried fruits, brown sugar, caramel and some alcohol. It’s full-bodied and smooth on the palate, with flavors of dried fruits, brown sugar and some caramel. Quite pleasant this one, except some yeasty, bready notes in the aroma. 141108

MiP (13792) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JAN 17, 2014
Bottle, 10% as Vicaris Winter 2013. Surprisingly weak aroma, faintly fruity at most. Hazy very dark brown colour. Good stable brown head. The flavour is roasted and fruity. Good sweetness, balances off the alcohol well. Hint of salt. Late raw liquorice note. Incredibly well-balanced.
