3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled at Oliver Twist, Stockholm. Clear ruby, creamy albeit brief head. Woody, perfumy almondy nose. Very sweet with thick, almost oily mouthfeel. Almondy yeast character, butterscotch and strawberries are being pushed back by oak and bourbon. Very potent and malty, reminiscent of a brandy. Intense. The wood is well strong, but it still works fine.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle at Akkurat, Stockholm, vintage 2007
Hazy color, red to dark amber, with a medium sized creamy head. The aroma can be perceived already while pouring the glass; there is some malt, caramel, delicate oak and light glue. The body is well structured, there is a strong malt flavor and, either the age or the barrel, it seems to be quite oxidized; medium sweet; there is some light vanilla flavor too, and a touch of light liquorice. The final is balanced, the bitterness is respectable, and the alcohol starts warming the throat. It’s a good, solid beer, but I would not drink it too often and it’s missing some exciting edges.
Suggestion: even if I like my beers with low carbonation, this sturdy beer is better appreciated with a slightly higher level of carbonation.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle, 12oz. Pours a nice, translucent copper body under a beige head. Vanilla, oak, sugars, some alcohol and dried fruits in the rather intense and complex aroma. The kind of aroma one could enjoy for a looong time. The flavor is sugary and alcohol-warming, with oak, dried fruits and hoppy bitterness as well. The bitterness was unexpected, but sure likeable. Full body. It has a long finish with oak, dried fruits and caramel. And bitterness. A really lovely 1 hour beer. (080216)
