18 cl bottle. #1362: brewed 16.12.09, bottled 19.05.10, BBE 19.05.10gEUS (1637) - Linden, BELGIUM - JUL 1, 2011
Very pleasant aroma has whiskey, vanilla and hints of roasted malt behind those. Reminds me of Närke Kaggen. Flavour has a bit too sharp whiskey, some wood and vanilla. A good one, at least for a whiskey lover like me.
With a very intense nose of roasted malt, chocolate and appels (very fruity!). Very smooth in the mouth, maasive tste yet soft finishing. SirLimpsalot (4162) - SWEDEN - JUN 8, 2011
Hade en ganska stor och mycket vinös doft. Lite halvtjock vätska med
tydliga innslag av lakrits och trevliga brända toner. Eftersmaken lång och fin.
Trots att det är en ganska tung öltyp så slinker den ned ganska lätt. yngwie (17038) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAY 7, 2011
Bottle, #937. A black beer topped by a medium sized, creamy, light tan head. Boozy, vinous and roasted nose with some oak hints. Oak, roasted malts, chocolate and coffee in the vinous flavor. Warming and full-bodied in the mouth, but it could use more carbonation. Overall, a nice beer indeed, but a bit too much oaked for my likings. A beer worth repeating. 110107 gunnfryd (14828) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - APR 3, 2011
