4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle (330 ml). #635. Shared by JulienHuxley, thanks! Pitch black with a medium beige head and heavy lacing. Aroma is of fudge along with vanilla, roasted malt, toffee, light fruity notes, whisky, light smoke and hints of alcohol. Taste is moderately sweet and again quite fudge forward along vanilla, whisky, roasted malt, toffee, light fruits (less than aroma) with a touch of smoke and a light warming finish. Full body. Moderate carbonation. Velvety mouthfeel. Very complex and quite enjoyable. One of my favorite from the Hel & Verdoemenis series. Balance is pretty good and alcohol is well hidden for 13% abv. Delicious.

4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
03.04.2014, 0,33l bottle (#300) @ home:
Nice light brown dense creamy longlasting head. Aroma is slightly rich, dark malts, cognac, oak, licorice, dark sugar, dark chocolate, vanilla, burnt caramel, dark fruits, cocoa nibs. Taste is rich and very balanced, dark malts, oak, cognac, dark chocolate pudding, licorice, vanilla, caramel, dark sugar, cocoa nibs, coffee, old rope. Medium bitterness, very smooth slightly dry and syrupy mouthfeel. Very nice, but I think I remeber the regular one as much better.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle at home, nr0862 Pours pitch black with a dense tanned head. Aroma of figs, prunes, some oak, rounded burnt notes and some alcohol. Tastes of dried dark fruits, massive taste of sweet dark malts, some oak. Medium bitterness and a silky smooth aftertaste of dried fruits and oak. Only thing holding this beer back from max score is that I would have liked to see a bit more body and a little less carbonation. A recomended brew if you can get hold of it.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Flaska parallellt med vanliga 666. På GHs kontor med Hoffback och Isabel. Får direkt någon typ av hembryggd-vibb. Bortser man från de uppenbara doft och smakerna finns här även något svagt syrligt bär med i bilden. På det stora hela en bra bärs som har en viss kärvhet i sig som smaklökarna aldrig riktigt tycks acceptera.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, 33cl. A black one, topped by a dense, dark beige head. The aroma has chocolate, coffee, some alcohol notes, booze actually, and a light roasted touch. There’s some bitterness in the flavor, of the hoppy kind, as well as chocolate, coffee, some roasted malts and booze. It’s warming and full-bodied on the palate, with a soft and pleasant carbonation level. Lasting roasted and lightly boozy finish. Overall, too warming, but sure tasteful. 140207
