4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Almost a barley wine-esq beer that evolves on the palate. Pours black as night and has a generous nose - may sound strange but coming off a cold I got that strong smell of fermenting bananas. On the back palate this beer has the coffee and vanilla tones that makes this an interesting beer. A little on the sweet side but given the style to be expected.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap @ Mikkeller and Friends. Pours black with no head at all. Not much aroma but a taste of roasted malt, lots of coffee and liquorice with a hint of vanilla - and alcohol. Full bodied. Someone else described it as "earthy" and that's pretty close. Overall not bad but possibly too strong and too experimental to be among the greats. I would absolutely drink it again, but even at 17% there are better alternatives.
