4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle. Pours pitch black with nice lasting brown head. Good lacing. Heavy Malty aroma, roasted, coffee, caramel, chocolate and liquorice. The flavours starts heavy sweet but turns heavy bitter. Longlasting bitterness and taste of coffee and liquorice with peppery notes. The body is full and the texture is creamy. Soft carbonation. Good balance. A super beer - so good.

Very good. Chocolate and sweet after a year in the basement. I didn’t taste much coffee. Good but not better than many other offerings.

Probably the best non-barrel aged stout currently made. In an age of barrel aged stouts this one still hangs in there with the best of them.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
750 ml bottle from Systembolaget. Black coloured with a large mocha head. Aroma of roasted barley, caramel, dried fruits, coffee, dark chocolate, vanilla and alcohol. Taste reflects the aroma, but less sweetness than I thought. Medium bodied. Medium bitterness. And low to medium carbonation. "Personally I prefer a bit more thickness and oily texture from a stout of this strength. Other than that its very tasteful, perfectly balanced, with high drinkability."
