3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Deep brown black beer under a beige medium head, somewhat fast dissapating. Roast malt, anise, caramel and a nice sour tone, cola sour-dough? Near full on the palate, decent spritz and pleasant oily texture, the taste gives more malt, roasted coffee, licorice.. –sweet, sour and bitter elements, but sweet linger the longest with a little bitter leaving me to wish for the sour. I quite like it though.

Bottle from Vinmonopolet in Valkendorfsgate, Bergen. Pours a good-looking deep brown, near-black body with a large creamy light beige head. Nose is bready yeast notes, licorice, faint leather and hints of cream and caramel. Taste is leathery licorice, herbs, wet grains and hints of caramel, chocolate and ashes in the aftertaste. Full body, medium carbonation. Nice, without being truly exceptional in any way.

Bottle from Embrouille - thank you so much! Pours cloudy nearly black with abundant airy but stable tan head. Clear aroma of coffee, malt, roast, and caramel. Sweetish, malty and caramellish flavour, with notes of dark chocolate and coffee. Well discernible alcohol presence. Sweetish afteraste. Boozy but good. Really good.

Flaske fra polet: nokså kortvarig beige skum med litt kniplinger. Røstet aroma med mørke bær og kaffe. God, saftig smak hvor vitaminene ligger elegant i bakgrunnen. Vinteren blir letter å komme gjennom med slike trøstedråper innen rekkevidde.
