3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at Stockholm Beer and Whiskey Festival 2012. Opaque black liquid with small tan head. Aroma of chocolate, coffee, port, licorice, booze, spices and light ash. Taste is light sweet and medium bitter with notes of coffee, fennel (why?!) and chocolate. Full bodied with light to medium carbonation. The fennel just ruins the taste...

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle thanks to Papsoe. This beer has intensity about it straight from the pour all the way to the finish. Pours oily black with no head. Nose is whisky, ash, dark chocolate, peppers and light vanilla. A little bit mish mash but it lets you know you’re about to get a punch in the nuts. Taste has the same intensity but the flavours transition a little better than the nose. Loads of pepper and salted dark chocolate up front with peppers and spice through the middle. Finishes ashy with faint whisky. Solid beer. Thin mouth feel and a little too sweet for such a big beer. Perfect sized bottle, even to share

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at the RBESG 2011 Grand Tasting, London. Pours oily black-brown with a small, filmy head. Roasty nose with some alcohol and aged dark malts. Big sweet flavor with a weird, kind of peaty and earthy character. Pretty big in body with average carbonation. Some burnt sugar and peat and wet wood to finish. Not bad. Pretty interesting.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
I like the danish description ;o). And I like the beer. Black. Has an off-white head, medium duration. Aroma is heavy black, coffee, chocolate, soy-sauce, laqurice. Heavy sweet flavor, burning alcohol, moderate bitterness, more soft laqurice, long-long-loong duration. Syrupy texture. Flat carbonation.
