3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Medium high lasting brown creamy head. Without my lamp behind it I would have said black. Now I say very dark red brown body. Lovely mild and smooth coffee choccolate wood aroma with just a hint of the alcohol. Flavor likewise smooth and pleasant of choccolate liquorice and a good deal of hops bitterness that is however not too dominant. Low carbonation, long finish. Alcohol level seems just right. Very well balanced.

Bottle at the brewery, Flåm, 25/10/14. Thick beige-collared ink. Aroma Jagermeister and coke; buttered burnt wood, mint and evergreen. Mellow oily Humbug taste with suggestions of dark chocolate, Jaffa cake, mint and orange, cinder toffee dunked in milky mocha. Thin body at the strength. Top end troll-beater but not their best.

Black beer. Sticky beige light brown head.
Aromas of prunes, mocha and some hints of coffee, darker flowers, some roast and sweets like marzipan/mocha.
Flavour is a very well balanced mix of prunes, mocha, bitters, some roast, light spice, dried leaves, light malty tone, light sherry, some other dark fruits and flowers, light wood ish tint and some marzipan and bandage.
Aftertaste is hay with bitters, prunes, malts and some toast.
Low carbo, soft creamy close to silky mouthfeel, medium to fuller bodied and a light oily to light sticky texture. Very nice stuff!
