Black beer with a nice dark foam. It smells like a monte/chocolate/kinder liquor with some dark muddy, marsh flora and thick smoke of a cigar. The taste is challenging, as itís so rich and striking. First impression is some dark dark chocolate filled with depression, than it morphes into swamp herbs to explode in your throat with a burning anise and chili. Itís very hard to drink a whole bottle though. Still, very mesmerising and demonic beer.

KnutAlbert (6267) - Oslo, NORWAY - SEP 19, 2014
On tap at The Pub, Oslo. Lots of dark chocolate, cherries, liquor, then some warming chili underneath. Very sweet, very chocolaty, more of a dessert than a beer.

Whoa this is weird stuff. Taste is mint, liquorice, chocolate and spices. After taste is warm from the chili and kinda reminds of old danish bitters. Either you like it or hate it, but do try it out.

On tap at ōltorget Mathallen, march 21st 2014. Black body with a nice brown head. Aroma of chocolate, cooked vegetables, salt licorice. Taste is sweet, light coffee notes, cabbage, some heat from the chili but it really dissolves through the not-so-nice sweet offtaste. I really donít get the high ratings for this beer, I think itís just a mess of different ingredients that donít match, resulting in a sweet overcooked vegetable soup. Judging from the scores itís probably me, I just donít get this beer, couldnít finish it.

Bamsen78 (3416) - SÝnderborg, DENMARK - AUG 27, 2014
Bottle. Pours cloudy nearly black with airy tan head. Clear aroma of chocolate, malt, coffee, and caramel, with touches of chilli in the long nose. Sweetish flavour of chocolate, caramel malt and coffee, with hints of liquorice and pronounced, but not aggressive, notes of chilli towards the finish. Lingering, spicy aftertaste with notes of liquorice and coffee. Creamy mouthfeel Well-balanced and enjoyable. Nice.
