Linnet (1758) - Karlstad, SWEDEN - DEC 27, 2015
Extensive barrelaging, lovely rich, vanilla and butterscotch, ABV evident, dried fruits, chocolate, woody, just lovely. Hazy ruby colour, big beige head, lacing. Heavily sweet, lightly salty, lightly bitter, complex, the lovely butterscotch, vanilla-notes come through a lot rendering the beer layers of complexity. Fullbodied, lively carbonation, complex warming and sophisticated finish. World class.

Out of date for a year, extremely tastey. Great body with hints of dark chocolate to it. Its a "must try". Better to share

Ktwse (4297) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 21, 2015
Pours cloudy medium brown with a couple of fingers of off-white head. Aroma of chocolate, dark dried fruit, bourbon (?) barrels, muscovado, nuts, and more... Its been a long while since I truly felt a beer had a complex nose, but this one definitely scores on that. Taste is sweet, boozy, bourbon and vanilla, raisins and corinthians, mild nutty sweet finish. Rich, creamy body with soft carbonation. Very positively surprised!

LLaurin (384) - Motala, SWEDEN - NOV 24, 2015
Pouring beautifully with reddish colour and a firm of white head. Taste is lingering and sweet with some alcoholic sweetness but almost like a barley wine. Very round and oily longlasting palate and finish. Some spices and herbs to go along.

F: huge lasting, off-white. C: dark reddish to dark. A: quite vinous at the beginning, malty, dark fruity, some chocolate, toffee, hint of hops/yeast. T: very lively carbonation, malty, fruity sweet, sweet plums, alcohol warming, chocolate, hint of coffee, molasses, some spicy, peppery notes, hint of decent bitterness, very good but not as complex as I expected, worth to try.
