Det heter att skillnaden mellan succé och fiasko kan vara hårfin. Här är den brända sojan så till den milda grad övertung att den stundtals hotar att välta hela skeppet på fel sida hårstrået. Håller sig på rätt köl tack vare en massa annat trevligt som väger i motsatt riktning.

4.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
When you get to this end of the spectrum, you’re splitting hairs if you think you could compare something of this quality. Sure they may be some beers that are better but seriously this is as top as they come. Dark black with some brown colouring under the light and a thick, nice lacy, brown, lasting, head. Smells of deep and delicious malt with roast, chocolate, dark berry (red grapes - prune) which adds a sourness, vanilla, lots of liquorish, and some alcohol spirit elements like a rye with spices that adds to the body as well. Smooth silky full oily body with no carbonation. Tastes similar to the smell; very sweet at first with a bitter lasting finish. Tastes of liquorish and dark fruit with sweet and roasted malt – smoky/ash, soya sauce and wood. The finish is dry and woody with some lingering alcohol. Need more of this in my life.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Strong, smoky aroma has notes of molasses, caramel and licorice. Pours a warm sable just a snip or two above jet black with a thick and fairly persistent tan head. Mouth-filling flavor floods the palate with woody hop, molasses, licorice and caramel tones. Syrupy texture is none to fizzy, but nice and thick. A bold porter that will make you sit up and take notice.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. An almost opaque black beer, with a large, frothy, nearly fizzy, lacing, mostly lasting, light brown head. The aroma is heavily malty (roasted grain, choclate, cocoa, coffee), with notes of vanilla, licorice, plums and alcohol. The flavor is heavily sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Full body, creamy texture, soft/lively carbonation, semi-dry, long finish with moderate bitterness, moderately alcoholic. Almost drinkable, despite the 11% ABV, neither cloying nor excessively sticky sweet. Smooth, excellent mouthfeel. Not the most complex, but I wouldn’t call it straightforward. Thumbs up.
