3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled 0,33L. Nice dark brown color, very lively nut head, much voluminous with an optimal duration. Roast malty aroma, notes of caramel, coffèe and burned wood. Inaspectated crisp body, very very prickly in mouth, rumors of bitter cocoa, roast malt and woody, pleasant bitter resistance on the final.

From a bottle, jet black pour with no head. Looks a bit flat but there is a little bit of life there. In the aroma there’s chocolate, hazelnut, almond, cream, some fruitiness, nice drink

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
330ml bottle from Tomlinsons. Pours a dark brown with no head. Minimal aroma, slight hazelnut, chocolate and cough drop. Also, a tad herby. Tastes like a very watery chocolate milkshake (as you’d expect, I suppose). Floral, and bit oily on the palate. Bitter, light body. Not offesnsive but I’ve definitely tasted better from Brewfist.

Bottle from Vinmonopolet in Vika (Oslo). Sweet smell with milk chocolate and currant. Similar taste, mostly milk chocolate. High carbonation, too high at first but settled after a while.

Highly carbonated. Certainly sweet but not overly, the carbonation .... lots of bubbles .... helps to stop cloying. Some chocolate but not that much. Nice but not outstanding.

33 cl bottle from vinmonopolet vika. Pours dark brown with a small brown head.. Aroma of chocolate and liquorice. Taste is smooth liquorice and chocolate, medium carbonated, but a bit dull. Easy to like this one but also a bit thin and boring.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
330ml bottle. Darkest reddish brown colour with average to huge, firm, frothy, fairly lasting, moderately lacing, tan head. Dark malty aroma with notes of chocolate and unroasted coffee. Taste is moderately sweet dark malty, hints of chocolate, mocca, a parallel sourish touch is present; slightly "crumbly" mouthfeeling due to particulate matter.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
0.33 L bottle ordered from Vinmonopolet Nettbutikk. A finger of big-bubbled tan head, over a translucent dark ruby brown body. Dryish cocoa and nutty malts to the nose. A light chocolatey scent maybe, but its hard to pin-point.
Light body. Slick mothfeel. Light sweet, light peppery, light roasty malt base. Firm bitterness. Some chocolate malts in a quite short finish. Drinks good.
