4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours thick, dirty black with a filthy rich looking brown head. Decadent indeed. Nose is smoked salmon, beef jerky, soy sauce and very mild hints of chocolate. Taste is salty and bitter up front, whereas sweet mixes in shortly thereafter for an impeccable balance. Mouthfeel is silky smooth. Heavy body and an amazing aftertaste. Good stuff.

33 cl bottle from ØlKonsortiet. Pours black with a brown head. Smokes malts are immediately revealed i the aroma, very bacony. Lots of strong espresso notes, too. Chocolate, brownie, roasted malts, liquorice, caramel sweetness. Very complex malt aroma. A hint of vanilla. So complex, and the smoke is very well integrated. The taste is also very smokey - chocolate, coffee, liquorice, some residual sugars that give a really nice balance. A bitter hoppineas in the finish along eith coffee and roasted malt bitterness. Wow, this is a marvellous beer!!

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
26/03/2012 Ma che siete venuti a fà (tap). Color caffé, densa, impenetrabile, schiuma finissima e compattissima, cremosa, molto abbondante e persistente. Aroma di malti tostati con evidentissime note affumicate (provola, scamorza), con note cioccolatose e caffettose. In bocca caffè, liquirizia, malti affumicati, bruciati, con riminescenze di salsa barbecue. Corpo pieno, consistenza cremosa, carbonazione corretta. Sembra più impegnativa della prima versione bevuta qualche tempo fa.

Black color, oily, with brown head. Very nice aroma, peaty, with roasted malt, bread. Strong body, with round mouthfeel; strong flavor of roasted malt and dark chocolate, coffee, some residual sugars, peat, coal, alcohol, resiny hops, some liquorice. Nice tickling feeling on the tongue, from the alcohol and the hops.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
(on tap @ Fair Bar) Pours black with a dark brown head and good lace. Served rather cold once again with little time for hand warming. Aroma seems peaty and vegetal. Quite creamy mouthfeel with the alcohol well hidden. Soft carbonation, full body and a lightly bitter finish with roasted notes. Taste is roasted with licorice and vegetal notes. Good but compated with good beers of comparable ABV just standard.
