Svesse (8595) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - JUL 9, 2017
(Bottle) Dark brown colour, almost black, with frothy beige head. Malty, roasted nose with chocolate, milky coffee, caramel, a touch of peat, oak wood, hints of whiskey and dried fruit. Malty, roasted taste with notes of coffee, chocolate, caramel, hints of peat and oak wood, dried fruit, vanilla and a warming touch of whiskey in a finish with a balanced roasty bitterness. More than medium body, with a touch of sweetness. Tasty and really well balanced with a gentle whiskey character. Very nice.

Drunk after a bottle of the 18 year old. Quite similar but this ones smoother, more coffee overtones and a richer aroma. Still maintains the liquorice and dark chocolate and slightly more full bodied but still a little more watery than I would like

Really dark, small brown head. Nice aroma, really nice good woody wiskey aroma in the aftertaste. Good beer!

piwnanuta (158) - Warsaw, POLAND - JUN 23, 2017
W aromacie whisky, beczka do tego suszone owoce i czekoladowa słodycz. No i wanilia. Alkohol jest w smaku, ale delikatny i szlachetny. W tle posmaki mlecznej czekolady nadające delikatną słodycz, kawa i ciemne owoce. No i jest ta beczka.

W porównaniu do 12-stki w wyglądzie brak lacingu, w zapachu i w smaku dużo wyraźniejsza beczka, trochę przytłaczająca resztę, kwaśniejsze.

Initial tastes of dark chocolate, caramel, blackberry and raisin. Finish has delicate smoke, sea salt, prune, fig, soy, earthy leaf, vanilla and whiskey.
