Bottle. Dark brown, beige head. In aroma caramel, some roastiness and dried fruits. In taste caramel, chocolate, coffee, fruits. Medium to low sweet, medium body, meedium bitter finish with acidic notes alcohol - it makes it a bit harsh. High carbonation (too high). Overall - I was expecting much more.

Svesse (7262) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - JUN 16, 2015
(Bottle) Very dark brown colour, almost black, with thick, lasting, pale brown head. Malty, roasted nose with notes of liquorice, black rye bread, dark fruit, dark chocolate and hints of yeast. Malty, roasted, fruity taste with coffee, dark chocolate, sweet liquorice, black rye bread, prunes, spicy hints of yeast and a balanced roasty bitterness in the finish. Almost full body, starts fairly sweet, but dries out towards the end. Tasty and well made with lots of liquorice, not as overly sweet as many strong Belgian stouts tend to be. Very nice.

frangio89 (3) - ITALY - JUN 5, 2015 does not count
Totally perfect beer, for me. Pheraps, carbonation is too huge. Sweety taste, caramel and chocolate.

Beerman6686 (5615) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 1, 2015
This poured a darker brown to black with a big overcarved brown head. Aroma was of roasted malt, dry chocolate and earth. Flavor was dry and lightly bitter, overcarbed, and roasted. Meg.

cbfobes (2800) - Quad Cities, Illinois, USA - MAY 19, 2015
Poured from bottle, pours a pitch black with a huge tan head and tons of lacing, the aroma is quite odd, sorry cherry mixed in with a hint of chocolate as well, the flavor is slightly sour at first with some vanilla and sweetness in the finish, nice mouthfeel and the abv is well hidden, interesting.
