3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Vintage 2011, 10 % abv, kept in the cellar after buying a 330ml bottle at Ølbutikken, Copenhagen over a year ago. Almost jet black body with a deep brownish shade. Dense, rocky fawn-coloured head reduced to a patchy layer. Smell of earth and dark chocolate malts added by a smooth hoppy twist. Fine blended taste of dark chocolate, burned sugar, grain and a drop of vanilla. Roasted bitter endnotes with a hint of coffeee far behind. Dry and soft on the swallow. Masked alcohol and surprisingly easy to drink. Enjoying (Tromsø, 28.12.2012).

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours an opaque, very dark brown with a huge, very well-retaining, dark tan head. Toffee, chocolate, and caramel nose. Lightly heavy mouthfeel with some heat from the ETOH. Taste approximates the nose, but with a liqueur quality. Cherry emerges as the beer warms.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
355 ml bottle.
Pours black color with a small, rapidly dissipating beige head. Roasted malts and chocolate on the nose, some caramel and faint licorice also. Salmiac, roasted malts, some dark chocolate and mild coffee notes on the flavor. Some ashy dry cocoa and dark bread notes also. Soft carbonation, slightly bitter, but velvety malty palate, short chocolaty finish. Good but I expected a bit more.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
A black beer with a weak but beautiful and brown head. The aroma is roasted, medium sweetness, salt liquirice, also sweet strawberries. Delicious. Taste is strongly roasted, strong black coffee, nice sweetness is balancing the roasted notes, salt liquirice and some berries. The bitterness is noticed just in the end. Low carbonation, almost full bodied, smooth. The great beer with refreshning strawberries.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Black beer with minimal brown head. Aroma is not too outspoken, beer is very sweet with decent bitterness. Beer is gooey thick, not bad, but just misses a little character.
