Flaske 650ml fra Vinmonopolet Tromsø - Langnes. Delt med gode venner på Nerstranda 24 Feb 18. Ultramørk amber. 0 skum. Mandelaroma. Smaken masse plommer & sherry. Ettersmak av mandler. Portvinspreg.

Rune (14180) - Tromsø, NORWAY - FEB 25, 2018
Thanks to Finn for sharing a big bottle, 13 % abv, of this one during a social gathering at his place. Mahogany coloured body, filmy layer, spotty lacing. Prominent caramel and bourbon aroma. Well blended taste of caramel, bread, prunes and bourbon. Port wine impression. Rounded, lingering aftertaste. Solid depth. Nice slow sipper. (Tromsø 24.02.2018).

UPDATED: FEB 19, 2018 Brown pour. Lots of chocolate, nuts, bourbon, fruit, with booze and smoke. Fantastic.

A pour from the bottle on Black Christmas V. Vintage 2013. Pours a hazy copper with no head. Aroma is bourbony, chocolatey and sweet. Similar taste with lots of fruity and berry notes. Very nice.

UPDATED: NOV 29, 2017 Fat på MBCC 2017. Ekfärgad kulör med liten kolsyra. Smak av melass, torkade frukter, bourbon lite portvin. Söt och träig munkänsla. Gott.

Bule (2315) - California, USA - NOV 19, 2017
500ml bottle of 2017 Release. Pours a dark brown color without any head. Sweet, well balanced easy going deliciousness. Caramel and toffee.

bhensonb (16271) - Woodland, California, USA - NOV 17, 2017
Bottle from Berkeley Bowl West. Pours dark brown with a few bubbles, and the pour suggests something syrupy. Aroma of brown sugar and bourbon - for some reason bringing a maple Voo Doo donut thing to mind. No bacon tho. Some wood! Pretty near full bodied. Flavor is brown sugar, bourbon and a bit of wood. Still bringing maple to mind. Poor brain. Obviously craving something strange. Heat is perceivable, but I had to think about it. This is a fantastic sipper. Far from dry, and not bitter, but the bourbon helps stand in a bit. Highly recommended.

Taste is slightly sweet grainy, raisins, dark sugar, caramel, grass, caramel malts, grain, toffee, minerals, oak, mild bourbon, hints of butterscotch.

Draft. An amber beer with a beige head. The aroma has notes of alcohol, caramel, and bourbon. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt, caramel, bourbon, and alcohol, leading to a dry finish.
