Bottle. Aroma of red fruit (strawberries, cherries), musty potpourri, bubblegum, some vanilla and roast. Unexpectedly fruity. Moderately full bodied, sweetish, fruity flavour, some licorice and roast in the finish. Quite an original effort, I liked it very much.

En bra porter. Rätt vag aroma, rostade toner. Lätt i kroppen. Lite för mycket kolsyrad.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A somewhat sweeter body, but still quite a balanced taste of chocolate, coffee and hops. Generally quite balanced but mostly on the hoppier side.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle 33 cl. Pours very dark brown with a medium, frotty off-white head and an aroma of black coffe, pure chocolate, vanilla and burnt malts. The taste is medium sweet and burny, with a short roasty finish. Not that special, but not bad at all

Not as full a body as expected, but the soft carbon helps - rather pleasant overall.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle - 330ml. Pours a black body with brown glints and a thin beige creamy head. Rich, complex malty/hoppy aroma with fruity, vineous, chocolate, and some vanilla hints. Its robust taste carries licorice notes and ends with a warming bittersweet finish. Interesting.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Has a nice sweetish taste of chocolate and vanilla. But at the same time, there is a clear presence of hops, which prevents the sweetness of being too dominant.
