Bottle. Pours a thick black body with medium tan head. Intense aroma, tar, caramel, licorice. Fat body with taste of roasted malts, bitter chocolate, wood, light alcohol hue. Some great and overpowering aromas, but perhaps not the most balanced.

Nice small vast brown foamy head on top of a black beer.
Smell liquorice, roasted malts, tar and chocolate.
Taste is a good mix of smoked wood, burnt malt, spices, pepper, liquorice, coffee, caramel, bitter, dark fruits, earth, light rum, coal and roasted barleys.
Good full bitter coffee, wood, liquorice aftertaste.
Low carbo, soft light creamy mouthfeel, full body and a light creamy texture. Another good BA imp!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
0,5 l. bottle from SPAR supermarket in the village Sæby nearby the brewery. Black colour with brown hues, tan head that slowly disappers. The aroma is dominated by the malts, I get caramel, coffee and roasted. There is also some weak notes of licorice and rum. Medium sweetness, lots of candy like brown sugar, a "sweet kind" of rum and herbs. Only medium body which is so-so for this style. Oily feel and soft carbonation. Rather shortlived finish for the style. The high alcohol at 11% is not present at all in this ½ litre bottle, so beware! I have mixed opinions about this beer: Its a like a liquid dessert with coffee, but without the full body and long finish for its style. A descent, not a excellent rating.
