UPDATED: OCT 23, 2012 Bottle. Pours a thick dark black with an espresso colored head. Aroma is dark cherries, espresso, black licorice, roasted malts, burnt sugar and hints of alcohol. Taste is dark chocolate and coffee. Getting hints of licorice and dark cherries and roasted/smoked malts. On the palate the beer provides a perfect balance of sweetness and bitterness, lingering roasted coffee at the end. Nice carbonation, definitely not syrupy at all. Impressive beer!

75cl Bottle from trade with Matt! Pours the classic beautiful pitch black with a dense, almost reddish brown head, that grows slowly when poured. Aroma has lots of sweet and roasted malts, savory, salmiak licorice and dark chocolate. Taste is nice with a lot of sweet and licorice dry/bitter notes up front, turning more roasty and licorice. Some toffee sweetness, and some hard roasted espresso. Slight coffee fruit as well. Lovely full body and medium carbonation. The body and appearance is extremely nice!

Bottle from trade with Matt. Thanks man! Pours pitch bleach with a nice espresso brown head. Easy 5! Aroma is huge with lots of chocolate, cocoa, coffee powder, vanilla, toffee, fudge and some sweet liquorice. Also some roast in there. Really really enjoyable nose on this one! The taste is just smooth and has a nice balance! liquorice, dark chocolate, roasted malts, vanilla, dark caramel and a rather savory end. This is one of those beers which is just balanced and killah tasty, has the looks and has the body! But as a base for Hunahpu - What did you expect? Ofcourse itís a killah!
