Damn! I’ve looked soooo much forward to this… Several calls & a reservation later (thx 2 the nice bloke @ Bishop arms, Bellmanns gatan), I finally get to taste this dark, mystic-entangled thingy.

Black in color (surprise!), not much carbonation going on here. This sought-after gem. barrel aged rum goodie and 2016 edition promises a lot. Nose is licorice, Deep dark caramellish, burnt & honey. Taste: Not much more carbonization, but delish BA maturity. Pastry-like, warmth and alcoholish candy goodies going on here. A beer for gods!

The sugars definately plays a big role here. Very much sweetness, mostly deriving from the honey. Mildly sourish notes midway, before heading back & fading out in that sweet manner. Nice treat, even at a summer day. Cool experience indeed!
