3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Opened side by side with an OG black metal. The roasty taste was much more over powering than the OG Black Metal, which and also had a much more thin mouthfeel. Still a decent beer, but I wish they would bring back the OG.

Bottle. Dark brown pour with a tan head. This version has a different layer with fruity almost jam like undercurrents. A little dryer, with muted dark chocolates and caramel notes. In my opinion much improved from the original version..

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Black and diesel-oil consistency, big brown head and sparse lace.
Nice aroma, burnt and darkly roasty, coffee and dark chocolate, a little bit of dark fruit.
Flavor is wonderful, roasty and burnt flavors are up front, then comes just a touch of dark fruitiness, then chocolate and coffee.
There’s a bit of a Belgian note to it, presumably from the yeast, which actually seems to lighten the body just a touch. Although full bodied, I find it surprisingly drinkable.
Definitely a tasty one, RIS and farmhouse ale lovers alike might enjoy this beer.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Jet black with a huge highly carbonated head that fades quickly into a small tan ring. Aroma of roasted malts, spice, funky barnyard, and coffee. Really strange. Flavor is smooth at first with notes of roasted dry coffee and dark chocolate, but transitions into a strange horse blanket/sour finish. I applaud them for trying, but this is just weird.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
0.75l bottle from Barley Wine. After leaking a good glass in my suitcase on the trip back from Copen due to a bad cap, this one pours a jet-black body with a strange dark chocolaty bubbly and kinda foamy head. The aroma has clear oxidized tones, but it’s also really filled with lovely licorice, roasted malts, chocolate and there is some mild faint acidity all the way in the back. Was not expecting it to have much carbonation left, but there is definitively some left in here. The mouthfeel is oily and not as viscous as I had hoped, but all in all nice enough. The flavors are definitely on the extreme oxidized-side and really dominated by roasted chocolate malts and some salty licorice. Tones of alcohol lingering in the light warming dark chocolaty aftertaste. Yeah, clearly affected by the fact that there has been a leakage, but still a really nice one! 01.07.2012

Sampled at an esbls tasting. Black with a red hued foam atop. I smell the blackness first with hops second. Funky yeast after. Funky farmhouse is tasted with, again, that blackness. Chocolate and some dark fruit. Big malt notes. A nice beer and the funk makes it really interesting.
