Bottle. It pours an unclear amber body under a small, off-white to light beige head. The aroma is toffee-ish, almost butterscotchy, with wood, vanilla, roasted notes and dark sugar. It’s semi-sweet and warming on the palate, with a soft and low level of carbonation. Nougat, caramel, wood, dark sugar and some chocolate in the flavor. Sweet, caramel finish with wood and some booze. Chocolate notes, and some nougat. A decent one, but a bit messy and warming. 140927 Meilby (11639) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - SEP 27, 2014

Flaske delt med dårlige venner på Sigmunds hytte, april-14: ufrisk malt- og maltsødme i aromaen. Heldigvis smaker den bedre, men dette var ikke noe jeg vil kjøpe igjen. Holmen2 (3880) - NORWAY - APR 12, 2014
Dark ruby. Not much head. Alcohol (and not only ethanol) in aroma. Taste is better, Dark caramel and so on. Nuts. gunnar (9390) - Sandnes, NORWAY - APR 12, 2014
Shared bottle at local tasting. Pours almost clear dark amber with a small white head. Aroma of alcohols, fruity hops. Taste is fruity and hoppy, dominated by the alcohols, not my cupper.

Shared bottle at local tasting. Cognac colour. Barleywine-like boozy aroma of molasses, oak and alcohol. Oaky flavour, fortunately not quite as sweet as I feared, decent hops. BeerViking (4980) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 23, 2013
