Amber color. The aroma has a lot of maple and vanilla notes in it, as well as some caramel malt. The flavor follows suit, but appears to be a bit oxidized. I get some maple and vanilla, but there is also a good bit of sherry and alcohol in the flavor. I also get a little bit of spice. Medium mouthfeel and low carbonation.

faroeviking (11086) - Chupando chellas es como ellas, FAROE ISLANDS - SEP 27, 2012
Botella, thanks a bunch Pinball for sharing this. Hazy like deep amber brown colour, more or less no head, bubbles only. Quite sweet well toasted caramel and dark fruity yeasty aroma with some soily moldiness bit. OPk mouthfeel, sticky like. Sweet flavour indeed, yeasty with well toasted caramel and dark fruits, vinious alco in the finish. Oxidization has occurred, yes, but still a fine well lagered brew.
