4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Oooh, another classic that I always wanted to try! Thanks Ogi & Nisse! Poured a dark, daaark brown tinged with amber, almost black. Cascading and lasting but small off white head. Lovely nose, chicory, chocolate and Speculaas. Light light some and tobacco too. Creamy... The taste... whoa, roasty again yet smooth, chicory and tobacco, very light citric notes to help it out, long roasty/chocolatey aftertaste. Very, VERY tasty!

this is a rich malt dark choc bomb which has a lot of savoury complexity about it too... it’s almost confused in itself... good though. could benefit from age maybe

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Riktigt fin redan nu och jag kan tänka mig att om man låter denna stout några år kommer den bli magnifik. Ordentligt svart. Lite kolsyra. Fruktig och söt i doften. Fyllig smak av frukt och choklad. Mastig, len och rund i gommen.

Bottle from Systembolaget. Black with a dense beige head. Mainly roaste malrs in the aroma, coffee, chocolate, licorice, vanilla. Taste is bitter chocolate and medium sweet. I would prefer a bit more middle notes in the form of caramel sweetness, otherwise a great brew.

Low if somewhat prickly carbonation, fine dry and very creamy mouthfeel. Flavour is elegant, very ’dark’. Coffee, smoked, chestnuts, sweet malts, burnt caramel, ashy, light charcoal, vinious and light warming. Lingering, bitter finish. Very nice.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
(Bottle, Akkurat, Stockholm) Black colour with lasting, beige head. Malty, roasted nose with notes of chocolate, coffee, cacao and hints of vanilla. Malty, roasted taste with chocolate, cacao, creamy coffee, chocolate truffles and a generous cacao bitterness in the finish. Almost full body, with a smooth and rounded mouthfeel. Quite dry, but a hint of sweetness coming through. Exceptionally well balanced and actually ridiculously good. Excellent beer!
