4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Taster from a 37.5cl bottle at La Cantinetta, Rimini. It pours a deep black color with basically no head. Aroma is big on roasted malts, toasted coffe beans and light coconut notes. Little residual sweetness. Taste confirms the little sugars left and great balance of this beer with big coffee and roasted notes. Then some toasted coconut emerges and the finish is bitter with loads of coca. Mouthfeel is quite thick with soft carbonation. Overall, very good IS

Bottle. Black with little tan head. Aroma of licorice and ovaltine. Taste of licoroce and alcohol, some dark fruits. Very sweet and a little rough. Not as bad as it was when it came out but still not great.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
375mL bottle at The Bishop Arms Folkungagatan, pours jet black with just a few bubbles of brown head. Aroma screams coconut upfront, followed by decadent cocoa notes. The coconut and cocoa are pretty much the main two qualities on the nose. Flavour is intensely sweet, almost sickly sweet, but somehow fitting, with notes of coconut and cocoa upfront, a little caramel, and lots of residual sugars. This is fairly cloying in sweetness, but somehow it works. These uber-sweet impie stouts are usually detracting to me, but this one feels elegant and complex. Excellent stuff. Perhaps only second to Abstrakt AB:04 in the series. Inexplicably great.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Black, almost no head. Candy aroma, chocolate and coco toffee cream goodies. The taste is less coco and more soy sauce and madeira, some sort of weird liquor filled chocolate? Low carbonation, medium mouthfeel. Tokyo light?

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours thick and black. No carbonation. Nose has massive amounts of chocolate. Taste is smoot, rich and chocolaty. Alcohol is not very obvious. A lighg bitterness in the very back of the mouth. Mouthfeel is a bit of, since there is no carbonation. Al in all, awesome beer, but really needed that carbonation to lift it.

Probably should have drank this on it’s own as this followed the 04.
Nose is nice as got good notes of fruit, chocolate and coconut.
Rest went downhill quite fast as quite sweet and syrupy. needed carbonation to lift this. Chocolate cake on crack I though. Slick, sweet and syrupy. Needed more dryness
