Small light brown creamy mediumlasting head. Aroma is slightly sweet roasted, puffed rice, roasted grain, roasted coffee, cocoa, hay, burnt caramel, dark malts, dark sugar. Taste is dry roasted, burnt caramel, roasted grain, roasted coffee, cocoa, minerals, alcohol, paper, oak, grass, ashes. Medium to longlasting bitterness, slightly dry and harsh mouthfeel. Fair enough, a little disappointing...
courtesy of Per - black beer with a dark beige foam left; solid roasted aroma of black chocolate, coffee beans and tobacco; sweet malt backbone; full-bodied, grainy and solidly bitter; aftertaste of roasted chocolate, molasses, Bourbon and vanilla; some warming alcohol presence Bobhund (188) - - JAN 6, 2018
Köpt på Systembolaget, Gävle. Lagrad i nästan fyra år nu, men måste säga att den var en besvikelse när jag väl öppnade och provade. Ingen större doft eller smak, alkoholen hade lagrats bort men hade inte några spännande smaker heller. Vet ej hur den var färsk men misstänker att den smakade mer alkohol.

Pours black with a low tan head. Aromas of chocolate, muscovado sugar, vanilla, oak, slight smoke. Taste is chocolatey and roasted with light vanilla and smoked notes. Mouthfeel is surprisingly light bodied with moderate carbonation. MartinT (10700) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 25, 2017
My Bottom Line:Oakes (22738) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 18, 2017
Toasted oak, roasted cereals and oatmeal cookies meld in this silky sipper.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A ring of foam crowns the dark brown.
-Alcohol heat is just present enough to cut through some of the residual sugars.
-Mouthfeel is luxurious.
-Carbonation is soft enough to let the malt express themselves properly.
Bottle. Thx Per!
Dark brown. Not a lot of head. Quite a bit of heavy toasty oak on the nose, alongside fudgey chocolate notes. Sweet taste, hazelnut, chocolate. The finish is balanced, and the alcohol shows through only in a bit of late warmth. A bit of richness but the age might have knocked the sugars down a touch. omhper (28614) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - JUN 10, 2017
Bottled, from Systembolaget. Black, small beige head. Coconut, chocolate, coffee and bourbon up front. Sweet with full body and soft mouthfeel. Rich on coffee, port, salmiak and molasses, warming bourbon finish. Rich and harmonious. angelkostvo (1249) - CZECH REPUBLIC - APR 2, 2017
Almost black colour, beige head. Aroma of the barrel, vanilla, cocoa, candy, coffee, cream. Taste is light to medium sweet, again barrel flavours dominate. Medium body, smooth creamy texture, soft carbonation. Very good.
