3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, thnx to rlgk! Cheers man! Pours a dark brownish beer with a nice amount of creamy beige head on top. Aroma has dark fruits, licorice, touch of fruity yeast, caramel and roast. Flavor is a great mix of all those aroma’s, nice and bitter with deep, licorice tones playing a great role in this beer. Long, light cloying aftertaste, bittersweet and full of roasty characters. Medium carbonation, oily texture. Nice beer!

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap at Fermentoren. Pours black, deep brown/red when seen in front of light, with a light hazel head. Aroma of citrus, pineapple and burned malts, massive cocoa all of a sudden, baked apples - really gentle mix of aromas, could smell this one for ages! Lot’s of toasted malts, coffeish cocoa darkness and bitterness. Could do with some (more?) dryhopping I feel, but perhabs it would over trump the subtle toasty notes. Not being a big black IPA fan, I really dig this one! Not to heavy, sticky or sweet. You keep finding new tastes in there, just got a huge creamy peach wave - awesome!

Mörk mörk ale med en kraftig skumkrona. Utpräglad humledoft.
Smakar bra med beska som ligger kvar länge i munnen. Färgen lurar hjärnan att ölen skall smaka annorlunda än den gör.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, from a trade with Cunningham. A high frothy lacing sand-colored head, over a ruby-hued dark brown see-trough body. Moderate aroma of mild, rounded dark malts and fruity hops. Soft and creamy in the mouth. Mid-bodied. Taste is more prononced. Roasty and hoppy, with a prominent malt- and hop bitterness. A potent and tasty beverage, reminiscent of an US-styled Porter.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a very dark brown, almost black color. The head settles down to a thin uneven layer that leaves lots of lacing on the glass. Nose has pine, liquorice, dark syrup, smoke and caramel. Taste is dry and very smooth with a long and roasty dry finish. Carbonation is quite soft and the palate feels medium thick with a light oiliness to it. This is quite nice, smooth and tasty.
