3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Aroma is deep roast, some mocca and liquorice, touch of metal/vegetable and regular malt. Flavour is quite dry indeed, loads of roast and liquorice, with a strong metallic sidenote. Some baltic notes, but unfortunately the metal dominates a bit too much.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Big smoke when opening... Pours a deep black body and big foamy tan head. Nice! Interesting aroma, with a mix of roasted malts and pecan nuts at first, a light funky fruityness later. Light resin, some lemon even. Strangely, only some reviews here many notice of that sourness.. Taste is richer than I expected. Not an impy of course, but rather a well drinkable yet roasted and interesting drink. Long licorice aftertaste. Quite a positive surprise for me! (33cl bottle from bottle shop at Utrecht Centraal)

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle 330 ml at home, poured into a snifter. ABV 7%
Totally black in colour with one finger of thick head, dark brown in colour, with surprisingly good retention. Thick lacing on the glass.
Aroma has a ton of roasted malts, some light chocolate, a hint of black olives too.
Great taste with liquorice in it, again a ton of roasted malts, coffee, dark chocolate, light vanilla. Nice bitterness on the aftertaste.
Thick body with the correct amount of carbonation. Really dry on the palate.
Really good beer, can easily stand next to stouts from better known breweries.
