anstei (2747) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - JAN 12, 2018
Bottle, courtesy of EuroSanta jappp, many thanks! Pours black with a brown finegrained head. Aroma is chocolate, some booze, coffee, bourbon and vanilla, sugar syrup. Body is heavy and strong, sweet and boozy. Too much on the sugar side though, not adding too many complex flavours. Chocolate and nuts are there, vanilla too, but that's about it. Good, but a bit too much on the diabetes side.

mice (1102) - FINLAND - DEC 2, 2017
Black beer with very small head. Aroma has strong bourbon touch with vanilla and oak. Also spices and chocolate. Taste has also bourbon with vanilla and oak at the beginning, following with malts, dried fruits and spices. The end is dry and bitter with alcohol. Full body. Sweet and oily, but not too sweet. Very nice, one of the best Finnish beers so far.

KnutAlbert (6798) - Oslo, NORWAY - SEP 26, 2017
Bottle from Alko. 13%, looks like mineral oil. Lovely lacing of bourbon, vanilla, velvety stout. The booze is very strong, if bourbon is your thing, do not hesitate. Me? I'd like a shorter barrel aging. And the American oak feel Is way tpp strong.
