4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draught at Bishop’s Arms Folkungagatan, Stockholm. Opaque black, minimal head. Vast aroma of Baileys and brandy. Malty with lots of chocolate, sweet licorice and Mars bar. Full bodied with oily mouthfeel. Potent but edgeless. Intensely warming without being boozy at all. Haandbryggeriet has certainly progressed in my eyes lately. In my point of view their early beers were eye-catching but superficial. As of lately they are real stunners, combining depth and and attractive surface.

Opaque black beer with the darkest brown head I have ever seen! Crisp palate which wasn’t expected. Dark rich malt with a brandyish tone. Finishes dry and warming with a trace of banana. A bit different.

UPDATED: OCT 2, 2010 Draught at Churchkey, shared with Bryan and Shawn. Black, with a head that resembles the froth on a freshly brewed cup of espresso. Aroma of dark roasted coffee, bitter cocoa. Taste is similar, slightly bitter and chocolate finish. Nice complexity. 4.3
Second tasting on draught at Borefts Beer Festival 2010. Smoky flavors more evident, and some vanilla. Great stuff. 4.5
