Znów - dużo ciemnych owoców, jest jakaś lukrecja, delikatna przyprawowość. Fajna beczka. Tylko czy to beczka? :p smaczne, nie powiem.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, thnx to LoFi for sending me this many years ago!! Pours a pitch black beer with a small tanned creamy head on top. Aroma of light smokey whisky, loads of molasses, roasted touches and some woody notes as well. Flavor is rather sweet, woody, caramel, light molasses and some boozy notes in the backend. Not really getting much typical aged notes, a lot of boozy is noticeable still. Very nice, even after all the years. Nice.

Taste of bourbon, vanilla, mild smoky, wood, and a strange sweetness. Robust roasty bourbon and raisin finish. Nice!
