@ Silenzi: mycket bränd kaffe i doften men smaken är mycket udda. Tunn kaffe med en metallisk bitterhet. Jag klarar inte dricka klart.

3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Aroma: The smell is fruity, red and dark forest fruits, some roasted coffee and brown sugar.
Appearance: The brew is dark brown, almost black, has a tan head that leaves some lacing, and has some curtains.
Taste: Tasting burnt bread, red sour fruits, and an off-putting bitterness.
Palate: Low carbonation, coarse, a medium body, dry.
Overall: Nope, did not work for me, sour and rather unpleasant bitterness.
Note: Bottle 750 ml. Reviewed 2012-08-15.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a really dark brown, with a light brown head.
The aroma is quite complex – lots of roasted notes, coffee, malt, chocolate, wood (?), vanilla, smoke, tobacco.
Off-dry, medium bodied, medium bitterness, balanced CO2.
The taste is rather elegant, and fine-limbed, lots of coffee and roasted malts, hops, smoke, tobacco, earth. A little more body wouldn’t harm, but at 5,5% it’s pretty darned good.
