Shared 2014, 750 ml. bottle poured to snifters displaying a clear, copper/amber color, with a presentable layer of off white foam, and spots & strands of lacing. The nose was soft grain, subtle spice, caramel sweetness, yet somewhat dry, esters as pit fruit & subtle tropical scent, with lurking alcohol at the ready. The taste was similar, medium+ bodied, with fair carbonation, slight, rind-like bitterness, and even tempered booze & warmth. Smooth. Inbreak (6315) - Loddefjord, NORWAY - APR 12, 2017

Bottle. Pours lightly cloudy brownish amber. Aroma is lots of caramel, some toasted malts, nuts. Body is heavy and slightly boozy, quite sweet. Texture is charming. Low carbonation. Sweet palate, too. Very round and balanced. As usual, Alesmith gives us a great drinking experience!
