Bottle 50 cl. Huge creamy light brown lasting head with good lacing. Cloudy black body. Heavy aroma of toasted and roasted malt, coffee, smoke and tar. Heavy in alcohol. It has a full body, a thick texture and soft carbonation. The finish is long and massive bitter. The flavor is medium sweet and heavy bitter - too bitter in my opinion.

500. Thanks, TheWolf! (Maria, my dear, your bottle is on deck, and I am glad I have two). Black. Dense, opaque. Thick, creamy, long-lasting dark tan head. Huge roasty nose. Tons of burnt charcoal. Medium, creamy, somehow both sticky and pleasantly chalky body. Big charcoal and roast and dark toast mid-palate. Doesn’t get excessively ashy or chalky at all. Gorgeous.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Opaque black beer with a long lasting, light brown head. Firm lace on the glass. The nose is filled with licorice, chocolate, pine hops in a perfect blend. Dry and bitter flavour, hard roast to burnt notes, a little alcohol bite. Hops and burnt malt fight to dominate the bitter finish and hops win.
No coffee, no barrel aging, no funny stories, just a perfectly crafted beer of my favourite kind.

Very strong aroma of hops and licorice, pours deep black with beige/brown head. Strong hoppy aftertaste. Not my favorite in the world but then again too much hoppes in this one for me!
