COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Boiled for 20 hours to create an umami flavour. Umami is the fifth basic taste next to sweet, sour, salty and bitter. By doing so we have now a beer that’s very thick and oily with loads of roasted malts.

Thanks to askofficerfriendly for the share. I guess we are on a thick blackness kick. Pours a dark midnight black with a small tan head. Nose is smoke, black, peat, earth, asphalt, smoke, and toast. Flavor is similar with lots of bitter from the char. Oily mouthfeel and earthy booze in the finish. Not bad.

Aroma is butter, liquorice, salty/silty, oyster/soy sauce, band aid and ve-tsin. So this is umami? Flavour is bitter and salty/silty of oyster/soy, salt liquorice, also hops, coffee, peat, spelt. Extremely creamy and full palate, clinging on for ever. Incomparable.

Sampled at DØE Beerfestival 2010, TAP1. Pours a pitch black beer with a chocolate head, nice lacing. The aroma is roasted, chocolate and licorice. The flavor follows the nose closely. The palate is fat and bold with some alcoholburn. Overall a nice and bold beer, but with a high alcohollevel.
