3.29/5  rDev -22.2%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

The colour is brown black, the low golden head disappears quickly. Some lacing and alcohol curtains on the glass.

The smell is smooth with sharp alcohol. Sweet roasted malt, some burnt flavours. Dark chocolate, old dark rum, raisins and whiskey. Hints of oak wood and Madeira.

The taste is intense: The first note is of sweet dark chocolate, but it is quickly replaced with bitter-dry salty flavours of liquorice, rum, oak barrels and coffee candy. Medium body. The alcohol grows in the aftertaste, it become hot like a cheap brandy. The sweetness returns, with dried apricots and raisins. Dry notes of roasted malts, orange peel and a hint of sweet lemon candy. The long dry finish got candy-like sweetness, hints of oranges and prunes.

The carbonation is light, the small relatively fresh bubbles are long-lived. The liquid is a bit thick and harsh.

After almost 8 years, this intense beer was not as oxidized as I had expected. It is quite smooth yet there are some oddities here and there (especially the sharp sweetness).

Bottle poured into a snifter. Best by 8-6-2022.

Pours a dark brown with hints of red and burgundy with very little to no carbonation. Strong whiskey followed by peat in the aroma - smells great. Taste is whiskey, vanilla and spice from the barrel and hints of chocolate malt, however not as good as the aroma. Certainly a sipper. Probably could have used a few more years in the cellar.
