3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Enjoyed 3 years after bottling. Pours black, with a creamy brown finger thick head. Aroma is oak and balsamic vinegar, as well as leather and coffee, and notes of cherries. Full body, with soft carbonation. Flavour is tart with oaken barrels, balsamic vinegar and nuts, giving a long, and quite fruity vinegary, tart finish.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aroma is slightly tart but a nice sweet chocolate behind it. Pours dark with a small but nice tan film/head. Taste is tart chocolate if that makes any sense. A little cherry and wood but mostly a belgian chocolate. Pleasant but confusing.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from Vinmonopolet in Valkendorfsgate, Bergen. Dark brown near-black body with a small khaki-colored head. Nose is dark, pungent and intriguing: wood, bretty horseblanket tones, red wine, juniper berries, leather, cinnamon, vanilla, hints of licorice and herbs. Very "Jolly Pumpkin"-ish, but with a couple of extra layers of complexity. Taste is juniper, wood, ashes, red wine, tart berries, horsey stable tones, licorice, hints of leather and smoke far in the back. Full body, medium carbonation. Luscious and tantalizing, this is a complex sipper with a great deal of balance. Definitely one of the best one-offs from Haandbryggeriet so far in my opinion. A real treat.
