Rough note for Ølfestival. Pitch black with a small tan head. Nose is roasted malt, chocolate, licorice and chili notes. Quite fruity. Sweet flavor finishing dry and slightly bitter with a nice, smooth, slightly smoky chilli bite. Olily texture, full body and soft carbonation.

Tap at CBC Clerkenwell. Black pour with a small tan head which quickly disappears. Nose is a fair bit liquorice and pepper focused. Some light dark bittering chocolate coming into play. Aniseed and chili in the taste with typical dark chocolate. Surprisingly balanced nicely. Solid stuff

Keg. Small beige head doesn’t endure, and there is minimal lacing. Smells yeasty. Body is mid to heavy for the style. Syrupy sweet chocolatey start to the taste, roasted barley, coffee and a bit of smokey chilli in the finish which builds over time. It’s a very good beer, but a yeasty sharpness lets it down a bit.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
100ml poured from a bottle, ØK 13. Black body with a deep, brown shade. Tan-coloured head. Earthy malts to the nose, mid-sweet and fine roasted. Blended taste character of liquorice, dark fruits, ash and a little chili to it. Long-lived roasted ending with subdued chili and warming alcohol. Full bodied. Looking forward to a bottle of this one to enjoy in the wintertime (Copenhagen, 24.05.2013).

Fra fat på Tap1 mai-13: kveldens siste, og for en avslutning. Fyldig og god som man kan ønske seg. Sjokolade, lakris, kaffe og vanilje med en frekk snert av chili. Mmmm, ettersmaken kommer til å vare helt til Nørrebro.
