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.

Nesten svart med brunt skum. Svak lukt med en del nøtter. Samme i smaken sammen med tørket frukt. Intetsigende ettersmak. Merker lite til alkoholen. Hadde gledet meg til denne på julekvelden, lettere skuffet.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Very dark brown body with clear ruby tones, beige good head, poor lacing.
Aroma; malts, dusts and a bowl of nuts. Taste; dark malts, dark prunes, mealy liquorice, dusty hops, dark fruit wine. Finishes a bit flourish, mostly dark malts, sweet and fruity. Feels full bodied, sweet, dry fields too. Overall a good and warming evening sipper, with xmas fruits and nuts in a bowl nearby. Cognac’s not necessary anymore...
