COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Few times in the history of craft beer it has happened that a highly praised beer rises beyond mortal stardom into a higher godly league. Usually the recipe to make such heavenly drops is thick fudge-like body, pitch black color, amazingly overwhelming aromas of chocolate, coffee, dark fruits and muscovado sugar, obviously only made in limited amounts and most crucial of all – it must taste rare!

fiulijn (14294) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 5, 2013
Bottle from Ølbutikken, Copenhagen,
Pitch black color with brown head. The roasted malt aroma has a component of freshness, sourness, roasted nuts and chemicals that is very interesting. The mouthfeel is round and smooth, thick; very good flavor of roasted malts and chocolate, similar to my De Molen benchmark, very rich; there is a light acidity from the dark malts, firewood, and strong bitterness; moderate residual sweetness. It gets naturally more roasty in the end, where finally also the alcohol produces some warmth.
Excellent.
