Nut brown color, good brown head. Caramel, toffee and alcohol in the nose. Full-bodied. Toffeish, liquerish with hints of madeira. Burning finish. Lots of potential.
Bottle, at Kristiansand Ølfestival. It pours a dark unclear brown body under a dense, finger-thick head. The alcohol is sure present, which isn’t surprising at 17.2%, but there’s also lots of room for toffee and chocolate. Some coffee and prunes chiming in. Warming, full-bodied and soft on the palate, with malty sweetness, toffee, coffee and some dark chocolate. Prune hints towards the warming, sweet finish. Too sweet and warming this one, but sure decent. 140823 gunnfryd (15645) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JAN 26, 2015

375ml in a dark green bottle with a golden neck. Vintage 2012 bought at Vinmonopolet Tromsdalen. Fair fawn-coloured head dissipating over an unclear red-brownish body. Prominent aromas of bread, herbal hops and bourbon. Comprehensive taste of juicy bread, figs, vanilla oak and ripe orange. Port and bourbon backbone. Dried fruity ending with tingling alcohol down the swallow. Enjoying, heavy stuff. (Slow sipper during the earth hour, Tromsø 28.03.2015). Meilby (11826) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 30, 2014

sampled on March 1, 2013.
Clear reddish brown color, brown head. Sweet, Salubrin, terpentine, solvents, nail polish remover scent. Sweet, charcoal, alcohol, sticky taste. Sweet, alcohol, burning aftertaste. Smooth mouthfeel, low bitterness.
Initial rating: 5/4/6/4/11=3.0
When allowing to warm up, breathe a bit and wait for a few other tastings then to return, goes more to my liking, more drinkable if you wish.
Bottle from Systembolaget, bought in March 2013.
Hazy dark brown with a small firm tan head. Aroma of alcohol, fruit, oak and bourbon. Sweet taste of oak, light licorice, bourbon, some fruit. The body was full and the carbonation low. Warming alcohol in the finish. Really strong but still rather drinkable.
