3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JUN 29, 2004 The aroma is sweet malty with notes of smoke, plums, and raisins. The color is an unclear brown and it has no head. The flavor is sweet and dry with notes of plums, hops, and dog hair. A pretty strange beer.

(Bottle 35,5 cl) Pours a slightly cloudy, dark orangey brown with a creamy, beige head leaving some laces. A vaguely tart aroma with an odd chemical tang - sulphur? Medium body with sweetish roasted malt and a raw, burned bitterness. Not overly pleasant. 191206

Nutbrown, almost opaque and not much of a head. Smelled roasted and hoppy. Strong taste of chocolate, roast and hops. The chocolate taste got even stronger in the aftertaste. The taste of the beer was strong, so atleast I would have a heard time drinking more than one of these in one evening.

UPDATED: NOV 23, 2004 Dark brown. Very malty, very rich. Potent, fruity and complex. Somehow I get the feeling however that this beer is like listening on your favourite music in a bad set of headphones.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
3rd June 2008. Label says ’chocolate, smoke and fig’ - good description! The chocolate is malty and the smoke pleasingly subdued. Bit of a shock on the first mouthfull but quickly becomes very quaffable.

Very dark brown color, with a huge compact head. Aroma of caramel, chocolate, light molasses, nuts and spices (pepper, vanilla), very light smokey, alcohol and phenol; complex, as the components shift and come in waves. Strong body structure, with a very strong dark chocolate flavor, perfectly complemented by the caramel and some malt, medium sweetness, but surpassed by the roasted malt bitterness, with hints of old wood, leather and liquorice; all this covers an excellent hopping. The final, powerful as well, and warming, has the character of dark chocolate and roasted nuts. Wonderful.
Dark chestnut color; huge, creamy head. Aroma of caramel, with a touch of vanilla wood and liquorice, some alcohol too. Powerful body, with an excellent mix of flavors, caramel over all, corrected by a dash of roasted malt, rubharb and liquorice; the final becomes more coffeish, with a reminder of toffee. The palate sees a struggle between the medium-high bitterness and the alcohol warmth. Very well brewed, a pleasure to drink. Excellent.
