Old rating rerated 12.07.2015, 0,5l bottle (2012 vintage) @ home:Nordcore (1698) - Lyngen alps, NORWAY - JUN 14, 2015
Tiny bubbly shortlasting head. Aroma is slightly dry fruity, raisins, citrus, caramel malts, alcohol, dark sugar, grass, butterscotch, dates, figs, burnt caramel. Taste is slightly rich and boozy, dark sugar, hops, citrus, alcohol, raisins, caramel malts, grass, butterscotch, burnt caramel, minerals. Medium to longlasting bitterness, slightly harsh and syrupy mouthfeel. Nice enough, eventually. But I guess it needs to be aged even longer...
Bottle 50 cl. Brown with a minimal lightbrown head. Aroma of licorice, caramel and spices. Warm alc sweet taste, light bitter with a licorice end

50cl bottle via Secret Santa. Pours a caramel brown with some spitty, white head. Nose has tons of booze and dried fruit, raisin, prune, currant, some wet malt, very medicinal. Flavor follows right along, loads of booze and medicine, raisin, caramel, butterscotch, currant. Full, sticky, boozy finish. Booze bomb. Could this ever mellow? omhper (25956) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - MAR 9, 2015
Bottled, thanks oh6gdx! Clear mahogany colour, no head. Raisiny nose with port and brandy. Sweet and intense with massive body and rounded, somewhat sticky mouthfeel. Licorice and dough, raisins and sake heat. Bitter finish with intense alcohol and salrt licorice. Unusual and interesting big beer. IPAgutten79 (961) - Skui, NORWAY - MAR 5, 2015
Brun uten skum. Aroma av alkohol, brent sukker og hint av lakris. Smaken er søt, med sukker, karamell og noe tørket frukt. Tykk konsistens, alkohol som varmer nedover halsen. oh6gdx (26485) - Vasa, FINLAND - FEB 13, 2015
Bottled (from vinmonopolet Kirkenes). Deep ruby red colour, pretty much no head. Aroma is liquorice, alcohol, some burnt sugar as well as some mild vanilla. Flavour is salted liquorice, strong burning alcohol. and some spiciness. TBone (18561) - Pori, FINLAND - FEB 13, 2015
Bottle from Kirkenäs. Dark brown color, mostly vanishing head. Strong licorice and caramel. Full-bodied. Alcoholic punch. Bitterness. Salted licorice. Potential beer but with too much booze.
