Pours dark brown with a big mocha head, fading into a thin lace. Nice and complex aromas of dark fruits, dried raisins and cassonade. Full body, plummy, oily, very rich malty flavors finishing on a fig note. Really feeling like drinking fig juice! Lively carbonation. Very nice winter beer.

Smoky malty aroma. Almost black in color. At first it was a little sour but then you get more roasted malt. Deep roasted malt is the star here. The absence of sweetness is unique. Different but really good. Wish I had another.

25.03.2014. 0,5l Bottle. Vinmonopolet, Haugesund. Black colour with dark off-white head. Aroma is rich with notes of smoke and roasted dark malts. Very rich beer with very firm and good flavours of dark malts. Almost everythnig is nice and very well balanced. Moderate sweetness, that goes perfect to the alcohol strength, the smokyness and the dark malts. Thick oily mouthfeel, Very good texture. Aftertaste is bitter with flavours of everything mentioned before. OMG this is a good beer!!!!!!

Fantastic xmas brew. Tasty, full bodied, bitter, heavy and spicy. Traditional with coffee and nutty tastes and aromas, but also well balanced and characteristic.

Darkness and so alive it started escaping the bottle when i turned my head after opening. Smells of a dark rich sweetness. A smooth full body rich chocolate with a sweet coal finish.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours dark brown with a big, frothy, tan head, that disappears into a thin film quite fast. Aromas are blackcurrants, dried fruits, earth, and nuts, there’s some alcohol aromas too. The taste is moderately sweet, and, not quite bitter, but rather astringent, as from patent malt-derived tannins. The body is medium, and the carbonation is lively, the aftertaste is long and mild compared to the somewhat harsh taste and aromas. This is definitely not a bad beer per se, but it can be a bit overwhelming with it’s harsh aromas and tannic taste.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a dark rown with a medium offwhite/beige head that leaves good lacing. Aromas of roasted nuts, fruits and spices. Taste is not too sweet and full of nutty flavors. Chocolate and some green hops flavors are also present. This feels like a porter, really. Body is medium-full, mouthfeel airy and smooth. Alcohol is quite apparent in taste but as of now (1/3 of the bottle) it isn’t disturbing. This is a damn fine beer I must say!
