Bottled at PBF, thanks KnutAlbert! Near black, minimal head. Rich aroma of pear and licorice. Sweet with full body and rounded mouthfeel. Sticky honey, licorice and coffee. Warming finish with marked coffee bitterness. Interesting flavouirs, but on the sticky side.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Nærbø Ølfestival. Looking gorgeous this one, with it’s big, dense, light tan head soon diminishing into a finger-thick layer of cream leaving lacings. Black body. Licorice, roasted malts, some burnt notes and coffee, as well as a pleasant touch of dried fruits and alcohol in the aroma. The flavor is nicely sweet, with coffee, licorice and some burnt notes. Dried fruits and a touch of alcohol too. Full-bodied and supersmooth, definitely deserving a 5 on the palate score. Lots of roasted style bitterness and some hoppy bitterness in the end. A bit warming in the end maybe, but certainly a beauty. 111022
