Coffee, chocolate and more coffee. Darkest brown, fair toffee head. Roasted malt flavour, good bitterness follows. Complex, feels like a Belgian. Smooth, with hints of fruit and nuts. Fabulous Beer!

Dark brown opaque body topped with a lasting beige creamy head. Nice malty aroma with strong roasted coffee hints. Well-balanced taste dominated by the coffeeish flavor. Strong bitter finish. If this is the beer they drink in Heaven, then I hope I’ll get up there when I die!

RateBeer Summer (Toronto) ’02: IMHO one of the best beers at RateBeer ’02. Molasses aroma with some deep hops, brown color, super long aftertaste. Very bold and complex. An aptly named brew.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
50 cl bottle. Tasted at home. No yeast at the bottom. Reddish dark brown colour with a nice fine head. Light aroma of roastedness, maltness and little fruit. Very tasty flavour with notes of roasted malt, and with a sour touch, maybe from the roasted malt. Very dry at the end, but well balance between the hops and thr roasted finish.

UPDATED: DEC 18, 2004 Sampled from draught at Stockholm Beer & Whisky Festival 2004 (#50).
Dark brown beer with a fine brown head. Sweet and full aroma of malt, chocolate and caramel with creamy and Jämtland yeasty notes. Mostly sweet in the flavor, roasted malty with spice, hop and fruit. Tasty and well-balanced and really smooth. A beer I could drink again and again.

Light chocolate and roasted malt nose, dark brown color, foamy low head Quick sweet taffee malt, peaty undertones. A little butterscotch is unfortunate in the middle. Powerful woody, roasted grain end. Lingering coffee-like bitter in the sides of the mouth. Medium body, metallic mouth feel. Big punch at first then a long tapering profile.

50cl bottle from systembolaget. Dark brown with ruby edges and a small, dying cream head. Aroma of roasty and burnt malts, brown sugar, strawberry and chocolate. Flavor is both fruity and burnt with a bitter finish and nice hop spice. full malt profile and smooth crisp balance. Body is full but not thick, fizzy but smooth. Good balance to Hell, but I didnt enjoy it as much as Hell was simply outstanding for its style.
