4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Tap sample at CBC 2014. First tick of the festival - and a big one, for sure! :-) Pours a deadly syrupy black body with a tiny caramel brown head. Nose is cocoa, chocolate, syrup, mild coffee, cinnamon, vanilla, hints of Norwegian brown cheese, coca-cola and licorice. Taste is caramel, cocoa, vanilla, Norwegian brown cheese again, cinnamon, mild chili, hints of herbs and roasted coffee. Thick, oily body, soft to medium carbonation. A complex heavyweight which truly delivers! :-)

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
On tap at CBC 2014: version 2014. On tap at CBC 2013 versions 2011,2012,2013. Black with brown head. Roasted malty aroma, chocolate, coffee, spices, vanilla. Sweet and bitter taste more or less like the aroma. I liked 2012 version more than 2011 and 2013 because it was more spicy and I liked very much the 2014 version which had these spicy notes along with delicious aroma and taste of fresh chocolate and coffee.

4.7 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Tap @cbc14. Pours black with big mocca bubbles around. Aroma is roasty and quite grassy. Herb like freshness. Lacing. Taste is dark chocolate, sweet and notes of coffee. Then some peppery herblike and dry long toasty finish. Amazing with so much freshness for a all black beer.
