0,33l bottle from Vinmonopolet 2015. Dark brown, with tall caramel head. Lovely aroma of sweet malt and licorice. Porter aroma. Taste is sweet, malty with a solid dose of licorice. The high ABV is very tangible. I would not have been surprised had this one been labelled as an imperial stout. Very good. A solid Xmas brew.
