Tap @ blue Monk. Rich brown body, tan head. Nose is light peat, bittersweet chocolate, rich dark caramel. Flavor is beautiful rich peat caramel maltiness, solid but no overwhelming bitterness w. some alcohol. A bit of cherry/ sark fruit comes out inthe finish w. tobacco. Lingering caramel & subtle peat finish with chocolate.

bluebetty (1019) - AUSTRALIA - FEB 11, 2011
Bottle. Pours a dark walnut brown with creamy tan coloured head. Head falls away leaving just the smallest skin on top of the beer. Aromas are quite sweet. Lots of spice, honey and liquorice. Plenty of yeast character shows through also. Flavours are quite medicinal. Sweetish up front the finish is fruity sweet. Medium mouth feel. Interesting

JoeMcPhee (8189) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 27, 2011
Deep brown-black pour. The nose is quite spicy with a bit of soft coriander and some sweet licorice. Lightly berryish fruit along with some black currant. Pummy and a little bit chewy. A fairly estery yeast profile backing some sweet malt. It’s kind of dubbelish. A little bit of light phenolics on the back.

trapez (1502) - Hilleroed, DENMARK - JAN 25, 2011
Tap. Aroma of roasted malt, chocolate and caramel. Dark brown colour with light brown head. Malt flavour well spiced and a nice mix of sweetness from caramel and chocolate and discrete hops bitterness.

KnutAlbert (5758) - Oslo, NORWAY - JAN 25, 2011
Bottled. Sweet malt, roasted grain, cocoa, caramel. Fine spicy flavour, there is a nice dry balance that is more spicy than hoppy. Some ashed and soot, too. Interesting - and good.

Pinball (10607) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JAN 4, 2011
very dark brown, smooth light brown head. dusty caramelly aroma. dry caramel, faint brown-cookie spices. flavor is roasted grains, faint brown-cookie spices, faint licorice like flavor. Taste is sort of like a spiced porter, or a mix between a porter and a christmas brew. The bitterness is more spicy than hoppy. I poured only a small glass from the bottle. some more beer came out by itself after a while. beware.. Strange beer, traditional recipe acc. to bottle.

jikvig (269) - NORWAY - DEC 28, 2010
Had this 2 weeks before getting engaged.. See the irony there? ;-) On the nose, and really through the whole beer, there is a sweet malt profile, with layers of coffee beans, yeast and toast. It got a decent body, but alittle thin in the finish. The licorice in the end is yummy.

mile (2738) - Helsinki, FINLAND - DEC 27, 2010
Bottle. Dark brown, average and fully diminishing light brown head. Moderate roasted malty and sweetish, some licorice and faint notes of spices. Body is average, in the flavor there is some roasted malt with wood and ash, faint notes of licorice. Finish is average, dryish, roasted malt. OK dryish strong ale, nice roasted aroma/flavor, body is a bit weak.
