Kaatuu lasiin öljyisenä ja mustana, melkein vaahdottomana. Haju on paahteisen maltainen, salmiakkinen, lakritsinen ja hieman tuhkainen. Maku on paahteisen maltainen, salmiakkinen, vahvan yrttinen, pehmeän maitoinen ja hieman suklainen. Suutuntuma on karhean katkera ja täyteläinen. Kokonaisuutena perushyvä IS, ei tajunnan räjäyttävä, mutta voisin ostaa ihan hyvin toistekin.

33cl bottle thanks to Dutchdrebus. WTF happened? My buddy poured the beer and the foamy, light brown head just came rising and rising! I thought he had poured it too rough, but when I poured it carefully and slowly into my own glass the foamy head rose like crazy! It was a gusher in the glass instead of the bottle! Weird, never had this before. Anyway, aroma is a bit weird, a bit like a barleywine but very grainy, some coffee, a bit roasty and burning leaves that are a bit wet. Taste roasted malts, a bit alcoholic, a bit coffee, some liquor. Very nice finish though: a lot of liquor and roasted malts which also gives a fair amount of bitterness. Medium to full body and carbo.

Pitch black opaque, big off-whote head. Very active beer. Didn’t gush when opening, but sure came out when pouring into the glass. Smells barley wine, cognac, sweet, some hops, roasty, liquorice. Tastes roasty, dark chocolate.. A great taste but the carbo wrecks it a bit. Going to let this beer rest for a little period before drinking it. The carbo wrecks this beer, great body though!

Bottle. A super-gusher, spraying half the train wagon’s inside, leaving a pleasant odor for the remaining 3.5 hours of the ride. The little beer hitting the glass was more or less black, with a dense, tan head. Coffee, some more coffee, dark chocolate, roasted malts and some licorice in the aroma. The flavor too has lots of coffee, with chocolate, sweetness, licorice and a lightly roasted maltyness. Full-bodied and heavily carbonated. Some warming notes towards the very end. A nice one, pity most of it ended up in the wrong places. 111014
