Bottle, bought @ Barley Wine, Cph.
Pours completely black with a medium, frothy brown head. Light fizzy. Aroma is sweet, lots of malt, chocolate, fat liqourice, mild astringency and tar. Light spritzy feel, medium carbonation, fairly light palate. Flavour is lovely with medium to high sweetness, liqourice, chocolate, coffee. Mild warming viniousness. Light nutty, some sugary notes. Subdued bitter finish. Could probably have used a tad more bitter hops, but still very nice.
