3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
From keg@Schouskjelleren, Oslo. Entirely black, no clarity. Two fingers of dense, ruddy-brown, cream head. Rich aroma of well roasted dark malts, black chocolate, coffee ground, and quite a dose of hops. Very filling for a 6.5 percenter. Smooth and thick in the mouth. Substantially bitter. Vanilla infused, roasted dark malts blends well in. Bittter coffee tones and notes of black chocolate/cocoa. Bitterness from both the hops and the malts linger in a long finish. This is really good stuff.

With a star guest brewere, it is perhaps no surprise that it is their best beer so far.
Lovely flavourful. Coffee, cocoa, a hint of smoke. Bitther coffee finish. Rye bread, a hint of vanilla.
