4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: MAR 11, 2013 2011 vintage. Amber colour, small off-white head which disappears quickly.
Lovely aroma of caramel, butterscotch, dark fruits, cinnamon and bread. Complex taste. Sweet malts, maybe a bit smokey. Bitter aftertaste...
2010 vintage (2013 march): Sweeter, more fruits, less caramel. Less bitterness than 2011. Aroma reminds me a lot of port wine. Enjoyable but I prefer 2011.

2015 bottle at a tasting, shared by Cuso. Thanks! Relatively thin bodied, very well attenuated, with alcohol hidden well though light warmth is present. Somehow stays on the sweetish side nevertheless. Raisins, dried fruits, prune. Quite good, no mindblower though.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A bottle of 2009 edition. Poured a dark, chestnut brown color with virtually no real head, just a small off-white ring. Quite complex aroma of chocolate, roasty notes, some mild woody feel and biscuity malt - focus is mostly of milk chocolate with slight burn. Taste starts sweet, mildly chocolate with some roastiness. Bittery finish with slight alcohol burn. Creamy and slick, but medium full body. Not a bad one. Pretty nice.
