3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap @ Amudsen. This is a deep dark as good as black in the glass-one with a small dark brown light lacing top. Really smoky on the nose! Lots of chocolate and cocoa also. Really smoked this(?), did not expect it to punch me in the face like this. Well, a punch is perhaps exaggerating a bit. Licorice and dark roasted malts also. Smells interesting and it taste quite interesting also. Again, the amount of smoke was quite present, only in a more alcoholic way. Lots of liquid licorice and chocolate. Thick and chewy on the mouthfeel with a soft light prickling carbonation level. Itís slightly spicy as well. Feels like in drinking a dark hole in a way. Not sure if it enjoying the smoke as I should enjoy it, but itís a flavorful beer this. 24.05.2013
