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.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Brewdog bar, Aberdeen. Pours jet black with a thin tan head. The nose has a lot of soy up front (which I find quite off-putting), rich roasted coffee, cocoa, caramel, burnt sugar, charcoal, liquorice and sesame seeds. The taste is initially sweet; caramel, cola, cherry and finishes savoury; roasted coffee, liquorice, cocoa, sesame oil, smokey and toast. It’s most definitely a sipper with a syrupy mouth-feel and fairly intense sweetness. Drinks like Tokyo* and seems to be lacking in any coconut.

37,5 cl bottle@ lusikka, bottle #1740, bottled 20.02.2011
Aroma is roasted and slightly sweet with cocoa. Flavour is oversweet with sugar and cocoa. Smooth palate. Some stinging alcohol starts to occur at the end of the glass. Like AB:04, but without the chili.
