4.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
10 ounce sample at The Davis Beer Shoppe (several weeks ago). The aroma has some anise, chocolate, and roastiness. Light smoke, and lightly herbal as well. Almost rubbery with some pool-toys, though. Opaque black body with a creamy yellow-tan head and great head retention. Starts with some sweet cocoa flavors, before some herbal flavors come through in the middle. Juniper berries? Finishes really smooth, chocolatey, and herbal. Good stuff, that is really drinkable.

Pours nearly black and forms a thick tan head with lovely lacing. Smoky aroma of roasted malt, licorice, dried fruit and a hint of what seems to be rutabaga. Full body, oily feel, soft carbonation. Taste of burnt wood and dark roasted coffee with a long and vinous finish of red berries and ash.

Bottle from trade with Meilby- thank you! The beer has got a deep black colour with an steady, beige head and medium body. Aroma of peat, torf and roast. Taste of roasted malt, woods, earth, leaves, spices, light smoke and vanilla. Bitter woody finish with some roasty, smokey hints. Not that easy to drink, yet quite enjoyable and special. Liked it.
