4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
33cl bottle thanks to onkelgobber. Pours opaque black and sticky with a gorgeous big crema. The nose has fresh strawberries and biscuits - maybe jammy dodgers.There’s also dare I say it, a cough medicine note or something herby. Eventually, as you go down the bottle, it’s giving a smokey/charcoal note at the end. The taste has savoury, maybe even meaty, then leading into toffee and nuts, it’s praline! If I’m being picky, it’s a bit cloying but with the richness in the body and the texture it’s not going to be clean, but good length all the same. Overall, an excellent multi-dimensional beer.

Pours a black beer with a beige head. The aroma is malt, licorice, coffee, chocolate, roasted and some smoke. The flavor follows the nose with additional sweetness. The palate is bold with sweetness. Overall a good beer.

4.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
Dark brown coloured beer with a creamy beige head. Aroma is vinous mixed with roasted malts. Flavor is roasted malts, liquorish, dark fruits, chocolate, coffee going into a slightly smoke bitter finish. Heavy palate and very long finish. One of my favorites.

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle purchase from Olkonsortient (sp?) Aalborg.
Black with dense molasses head. Bit of chocolate in the nose but overall muted. Chocolate, whiskey, roasted flavors. Smooth and crisp carb. Nice beer, just not overwhelmingly interesting.
