Old Bottle. Black. Heavy malty, whiskey peaty nose. Thick, downdragging, kinda nice tho, intense, salt licorice, malty. Full bodied, thick body. Heavy woody peat. Sorta drinkable tho. At least in this state. In which moonshine feels like water. So dont mind that. Nevermind. This was pretty nice tho, lotsa flavours, intense and everything. Complex, had i just have the patience.

(Bottle, 0.33 l - batch 060 - BB 15-03-23, thanks jookos, 20170313) The beer poured black. Its head was small and lightly brown. Aroma had vineousness, sweetness and berries. Palate was full bodied with low carbonation. Flavours were burnt malts, vineousness, berries, ash and bitterness. Aftertaste had berries, vineousness and bitterness. A confusing brew but not a bad one.

Holmen1 (5575) - Stavanger, NORWAY - NOV 15, 2016
Flaske hjemme (min rating nr. 5000!), delt med Ovesen: brunsvart med kort skum. Heftig og begeistret aroma og smak av de mrkeste malter og sjokolader, vanilje, eik, whisky, snev av torvryk og et kledelig streif av solbrsdme. Vidunderlig balansert, suveren munnflelse og laaang ettersmak. Alkovarme i magen, men etter endt brygging kl. 21 er det bare deilig. Et perfekt valg for feire en rb-milepl. Diagnosen er fortsatt intakt.
