Bottle 33 cl, trade. Pours black with a small brown head. Aroma is sweet, fruity, roasted, malty, dark fruits, fidges, port and nutty. Flavor is acidy, sourish, sweet, coffee... much like aroma, very drinkable with decent bitterness. Finishes roasted coffee and fruity.

This is by far one of my favorite beers. I love the aroma of chocolate and roasted smells. The appearance is Black clear and frothy with the reddish pomegranate showing in the head. I would love to know how to clone this as I would have it all the time.

Helt svart öl med brunt skum. Doft av kaffe och mörka bär. Smaken är bra balanserad mellan en viss sötma och en påtaglig rostad ton och beska.

Trevliga dofter av choklad, kaffe och citron. Smakar aningen för bittert för min del, men är ändå ingen dum öl alls, där framför allt den mörka chokladen dominerar och svartvinsbärsaft finns i bakgrunden.

nice subtle aroma very dark but thin head strong oak and vanilla notes but a slight sour astringent flavor over power. I’d get again though

UPDATED: JUN 9, 2012 A: Jet black body... two finger brown head that receded to a nice skim... not much in the way of lacing. S: Coffee, cocoa, a zing of pomegranate... some dark fruits from the belgian yeast.. raisins and figs mostly T: A tad downhill from the nose... the pomegranate kind of gets in the way of what is otherwise a very nice coffee/cocoa flavor... dark fruits are also here... booze is well masked M: A tad thick and chewy up front, lingering, watery aftertaste. O: An interesting experiment... certainly worth a try, the pomegranate might be more up your alley than mine.

Bottle. Pours pitch black, chocolate broown head. Sweet malty, slightly bitter nose, with fruity hints of the pomeganate juice. Rich, full body with flavor notes of candy sugar, ripe berry, and a bit oof a roasted coffee note. Slightly sweet finish.

Pitch black with a tan head. Chocolatey aroma with some ripe fruit. Flavor follows suit with lots of chocolate and sweet/tart pomegranate and cherry. Coffee and chocolate stand out on the finish. Syrupy mouthfeel with very light carbonation. Definitely unique and worth coming back to again.
