neongolden (1350) - Linkping, Sweden/Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 21, 2017
(500ml 2013 bottle from Systembolaget web order shared) Pours mahogany with a small loose white ring of bubbles. Aroma heavily burnt sugar, char, moderate bourbon notes, some vanilla, wood. Flavour is very balanced, with a rich caramel, totally burnt sugar, and aged bourbon base profile, toasted wood and some char, subtle dried fruits, light grain. Finish is long rich malt and wood layers, a panoply of ways sugar can be cooked or burnt, and wood can be toasted. Medium-full body with average carbonation. Maybe its age but the barrel here was quite subtle and integrated compared to the wheat whiskey version, not so flashy but more to explore and consider. Very nice.

Bottled 375ml (Systembolaget vintage 2013)
Deep ruby color, small beige head. Lots of toffee, vanilla and light alcohol in the nose. Medium-bodied. Mellow bourbon vanilla, maltyness in the flavor. Warming alcohol. Sweet robust vanilla beer. Excellent sippable brew and aged nicely.

Bottled@AIH66 Beer Session (from Systembolaget), Rubyish red colour, small head. Aroma is fruity, rum raisin, some alcohol, mild wood, vanilla as well as some nice mellow whiskey notes. Flavour is rum raisins, mellow whiskey, some alcohol and rather sweet sugary notes. Yet so very balanced and beautiful. Delicious.

14,1 %-os főzet a 2013-as old ale, ez a kt adat mr megfelelő alap lehet a bizakodshoz, ha egy kivteles italban remnykednk. Jeges tea sznű teste szinte hab nlkl fejlődik, lthatan a pezsgős dugtl trtnő megszabadtst kvetően sem indult meg a sr. Illataitl valsggal htrahőklhetnk, elementris bourbon aromk robbannak szt a levegőben. zott tlgyhord, de nem akrmilyen, olajos gabonaprlatok puhtotta fadongk karaktere thatolhatatlan illatrteget alkot, melybe zabolzhatatlan alkoholos jegyek szvődnek a meggymagos, manduls, marcipnos likőrk emlkt is megidzve. A test lnk, brutlisan alkoholos, valsznűleg a szerkezet jellegből addan t t jobban a szeszes hangulat, de krra semmikppen nem vlik az italnak, ugyanis a karakter erre van kitallva, megfelelő a terep a cspős, melengető elemek letaglz szereplshez. Vanlia, karamell, borkabogy, szrtott-cukrozott paradicsom, kevs fonya s alma erjesztett jegyei fondnak egybe a masszv, whiskys lenyomat slya alatt, kvethetetlen soksznűsggel, minden figyelmet maghoz ragad vadsggal, lenyűgző sszetettsggel. Meghllja, hogy kiszabadult a palackbl, egyszerinek s megismtelhetetlennek tűnik a felejthetetlen szerepls.
