Bottle. Pours black with a dark brown head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a good amount of dark grains with a decent amount of roast and a hint of pine and a hint of smoke. Flavor has more of a sweet dark grain note with some growing roast and a hint of bitter chocolate.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pitch black body with a huge compact mocca head that leaves tons of lacing. Chocolate and coffee is the first thing that hits the nose, followed by roasted malt and dried plums. Flavor is roasted, with a distinct bitterness, burnt coffee liquorice and white pepper. Finishes off a bit too bitter for me.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
500ml bottle batch 810, kindly shared by djoeye. Espresso head resting on top of a jet black body. Spotty lacing down the glass. Inviting aromas of grainy chocolate and coffee, nicely roasted. Well blended taste of black chocolate, nuts, ash, anise, dark wheat and dark fruits. Lingering roasted bitterness to the ending with a deep backdrop of coffee beans. Well integrated alcohol. Full bodied and velvety on the swallow. Much appreciated (Tromsø 20.4.2015).

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Grey head, cocoa-ish body. Aroma; chocolate, prunes, sweet black liquorice, cocoa, hazelnut, roasted almonds. Taste; dark chocolate, black liquorice, bitter jägermeister, a bunch of hops. Tough body. Long roasted finish with bitters, as a war between 8 malts and some big cannons of hops - and maybe hops won the battle at the final end.
