4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
500ml bottle: black pour with minimal sand colored head. Sweet coffee and chocolate aroma with hints of caramel. This beer is all about the malt. Hops take a backseat in both flavor and aroma. Bright bold flavors of coffee and chocolate dominate with hints of caramel and spice and a tinge of smoke. Impressive balance and drinkablity for such bold flavors!

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
På hytta 3.nyttårsdag (batch 461, bb, juni-15): denne har tydeligvis tålt den lange lagringen. Lysebrunt skum over et svart øl som dufter sterkt av brent brød, syrlig mørk kaffe, kraftig røstet malt og littegrann lakris. Smaken er så kraftig og rugsyrlig at det tar noen slurker før jeg begynner å kjenne nyansene. Flasken varte gjennom en hel episode av Arvingerne.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Appearance: inky dark, pretty viscous, with a short, near purple creamy froth of head, vanishing quickly. Aroma: licorice up front, then some dark chocolate, soy sauce, and molasses. Taste: bittersweet, VERY dark chocolate up front, with a smooth black licorice/molasses note under that, then some vanilla, then a hint of black bread. Finish: long-lasting and slightly sweet, with licorice the most prominent note. Notes: Sticky, smooth, and rich. Would have liked a little more heat from the rye, and it felt a little more like a straight Baltic Porter than I’d expected, but it was still darn good. Bottle from Knightly Spirits in Orlando, Florida.
