4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
(Bottle) Pours black with a pale brown head. The aroma holds balanced but robust coffee profile, fruits, dark chocolate and a touch of alcohol. The nose is not über complex, yet perfect in balance, just as I like it. The flavour is light to medium sweet, medium bitter and a whisper of acidity. Coffee, balanced roast and balanced hops. The mouthfeel is fat, round and valvety and soft carbonation. Fantastic, complex finish. Near full bodied.

Svag doft av nyskuren grön chili och bitter choklad. Elegant och delikat. Bitter choklad i smak tydligt. Spritig. (Så står det i anteckningarna, minns inte vem jag tradeade den här med. Kan inte utesluta att den har blivit misshandlad)

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
This beer here, this beer I had @ the Grand Tasting... Compliments of RobertDale, a fine fellow who has impeccable taste in beer & canines.
The beer pours perfectly black with a small head.
The aroma is rich & roasty with some dark chocolate, but more just a ton of coffee character. It’s got some rich vanilla and some booziness.
The flavor is just huge, it’s got a bunch of coffee and rich maltiness. It’s ashy, somewhat sweet, but it’s go t a nice warming boozy character and.. didi I mention? fabulously balanced roastiness.
This is one of those beers where it’s hard to put a finger on why it’s so great, except to say that it is just immensely enjoyable.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle, courtesy of kermis. Pours a pitch black beer with a small beige head on top. Aroma has roasted coffee, thick malty, sugary molasses, caramel and vanilla. Flavor is bittersweet, lots of coffee and vanilla. Very thick mouthfeel, syrupy, lots or molasses and caramel. Coffee influences are really upfront and balancing out the sweetness. Low carbo, very nice unit.
