18 cl bottle not shared but drank all by myseeeeelf after Christmas dinner. Maximum indulgence! Very dark brown with short lasting dark beige head. Vanilla and dried plums on the nose. Roast, some bourbon, sour red berries, molasses, coffee, lots of brown sugar, old wood, red wine, dark chocolate. Lots of sweetness and dessert notes up front, but in the finish it’s more dry, medium bitter and light sour. Almost full bodied with light dry finish and soft carbonation. Indulgence indeed, though maybe not maximum. I do like the small bottles though, nice to drink by yourself. kraddel (9329) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - JUL 24, 2017

Bottle from Systembolaget. Dark brown with no head. Malty aroma with some vinous notes, plums, chocolate and booze/barrel. Sweetish vinous taste with grapes, chocolate, very light roast that lingers and some liquourice. Truly a sipper, but quite interesting. Svesse (8942) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - DEC 6, 2015
