Very deep ambery black colour with a small beige head. Aroma is liquorice, some floral notes as well as mild vanilla and ripe fruits. Flavour is ripe fruits, liquorice, wood and some mild alcohol.
Bottle. Beautiful malty and roasty aroma with charred vanilla. Taste is softly sour and roasty vanilla. Very nice. omhper (25541) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - OCT 25, 2013
Bottled, from Systembolaget. Near black, small head. Chocolaty nose with vanilla and bourbon. Mid sweet with full body and soft mouthfeel. Relaxed and harmonious with tobacco and chocolate, and interesting oak flavours. Deep and full of character. Glad to see this excellent brewer attempting a style of beer that can get him to the top percentiles.
