4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: JUN 3, 2011 Cortesy of kaj. Pours black with big fluffy brown head nice lace. Aroma of pine, soap, tar, hops. Sweet crispy mouthfeel. Flavor is malty, roasted, meaty, perry, crispy, fruiity. Very nice tart sweet palate. Finishes roasted sweet and longlived tart. Second rate, bottle @ home on my own. Aroma is so fullbodied as the flavor and finish as well. Must raise the score a bit. Fantastic huge head, kinda of layered with a tense creamy top and more bubbly at the bottom.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Systembolaget. Aroma contains roasted notes from the malt, some sweetness and some tropical fruits from the alcohol and the hops. It pours a black thick liquid with a thick foam that leaves a lot of lacing. Taste is roasted and very rich on the onset and in the midtones. Goes down with a finishing bitterness and leaves a crisp and dry mouthfeel behind. Quite pleasant and fun combination of dark and light beer.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Black with clear red tints and a huge massive light brown head that just refuses to die. Nice lacings.
Aroma is grassy hops, spice, salmiak, coffee, mineral, and wet cardboard.
Taste is roasted malty and a bit sweet with a very potent grassy hop bitterness. Coffee, salmiak and spices- It all makes me think of Fernet Branca, and I don’t know what to feel about that.
Body is medium, carbonation is small nice bubbles, the alcohol gives warmth. I dont know what to think of this. Awesome in the beginning, a bit too much at the end.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Mycket mörk (duh) och stort skum.
Aningen vanilj i en annars lite metallisk smak.
Smaken är lite ”schizofren” med tydliga rostade toner tillsammans med en lite besk humle. Jag vill nog kanske kalla den en hybrid öl, eller kanske en lite förvirrad öl som har tydlig porter-karaktär, men som fortfarande håller IPA-stilen till en viss grad.
Ganska het eftersmak.
Lite udda men helt klart trevlig
