Deze zware stout is gebrouwen met wat rookmout en veel donkere geroosterde moutsoorten. Hierdoor krijgt het bier veel drogende gebrande bitterheid. Deze bitterheid doet denken aan salmiak, jodium en teer. De Nelson Sauvin geeft het bier een sterk aroma van overrijpe mango en versterkt de teerachtige aroma’s (petrotonen). Volgens enkele proevens doet het denken aan een Islay malt whiskey qua aroma. Hoofdsmaak is gebrand bitter

laiti (7263) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUN 24, 2015
33 cl bottle @ hotel room, Bruges. BBE 03.03.2017. Aroma has syrupy malt, raisins and some smoke. Feels sweet and heavy. Flavour is also sweet and somewhat heavy with smoke, sweet rye tones, licorice, syrupy malt and raisins. Alsohol disturbs here a bit as it burns in the background. Still quite rich and nice.

WOW. Great looks, black with nice settling dark brown lasting, lacing foam head. Not too strong aroma, but nice. Great taste, bitter, tar. I like Talisker whiskey and this has resemblance. Lasting aftertaste, bitter, licorice. (Velp 201506)

Full taste, saw this at a bar near home. So epic! Full of character, not a lot of cream but epic black!

Black with creamy, dark head. A very intensely flavoured beer with smoke, coffee, malts, whiskey. Bitter and sweet and fairly boozy.
