33cl bottle shared by Arve_Christian - thanks a lot! Pours very dark brown, close to black, with a beige head. Roasty and hoppy aroma in a nice mixture, pine, hints of citrus, licorice and chocolate. Moderate to medium sweet with nicely balanced flavours and a decent bitterness. Tasty, enjoyable and easy to drink!

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle. Dark black with huge amount of thick, tan, structural head. Sweet, malty aroma, with hints of dark fruitcake. Sticky and thick with a dark roasted molasses/coffee/smoke flavor. Hard to think what could’ve improved this. Perhaps a tad overcarbonated.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
33cl bottle. Brewed on Friday 13th. Label also tells me this has 8% ABV. Pours pretty much pitch black color, brown head, settles quick but leaves a1 cm head that lasts very long. Strong coffee aroma at first, molasses, roasted malt. Also woody notes appears. Flavor has dark chocolate, strong coffee, ash, burnt wood, loads of hops. is that chili burn in my throut? Yeah it is quite ashy, especially the finish. Feels surprisingly thin for this high ABV. There are things I like about this beer, but also things that force me to lower the points a little. Nice label though.
