4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
All on tap at double wide grill. Drank 4/25/13.
2008: Aroma of alcohol. Pours a dark black with no head. Silky smooth and oily. Slight amount of heat but very tasty.
2009: More alcohol in the aroma than the 2008. Same pour, more heat. Still smooth.
2010: Even more alcohol aroma. Surprisingly less heat. Still silky smooth.

Bottle from 2008. Pours black with brown head. Little lacing. Smells of licorice, chocolate and malt. Tastes of caramel with hints of chocolate. Intense barley heat on the backend. Smooth mouthfeel. Nice carbonation. Roasty taste on the palette. A sneaky amount of alcohol. Overall a complex intense stout.

Very strong dark stout. Although high AVB, the flavor is not compromised. Bold taste.

12ozbottle from Hegedorns. Pours a inky black, looks a little thinner than I thought it would be. Strong aromas of rubbing alcohol, roast. Coffee is absent from the nose. Taste is very boozy, cloying. Very hot. Not my favorite.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle at Akkurat, April 2013. (vintage 2009)
Black with no head. Very nice aroma of dried fruit, licorice, soy, port wine and some notes of berries. The taste was excellent, heavy but still nicely drinkable. Notes of alcohol, dried fruit, soy, port wine and some very light notes of roasted malt. Also dark chocolate and sugar. A great one! Expensive (595 sek, around 93 USD) but worth the price. Would love to try this one again. Heavy but an excellent one to sip.

@akkurat: stor tung doft av arrak, soya, choklad. Ingen rostade toner. Smaken är fyllig och komplex. Jag hittar toner av russin och plommon. En del alkohol. Ganska sött. Gott.

Rating #1000 yay! Thnx to Greg for sending me this bottle. 2010 version. Pours a pitch black beer, no light shining trough whatsoever. Small beige head on top. Aroma is very medicinal, full of molasses, licorice and has some boozyness in the smell. Flavour is very sweet, high alcoholic. When warmed up, flavours become more subtle. Roasted malts and chocolate are ruling now but still there is a heavy alcoholic kick in this beer. Mouthfeel is kinda burning, yet cloying and syrupy. Very heavy beer, great sipper. Would love to try to age one of these!!
