3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, 750ml. A dark beer with a reddish hue at the bottom and a big foamy head with beautiful lacing. Aroma is very complex, mainly of pecan nuts, spices, alcohol, caramel and toasted malt. Taste is bitter and goes slightly sour at the end. Very rich and robust with a considerable amount of carbonation and astringency. Overall a great beer and definitely one I would always try to keep in my cellar.

Aroma is strong and resembles roasted coffe. Sweetness in the aroma is evident. Pours with a lot of head! and is roasted black in appearance. The beer has a lot of character, a lot of different, sweet notes. Great body. A very good beer! Sweet aftertaste.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle 33cl. Dark, almost black with light creamy head. Aroma is lovely sweet, but the taste is quite complex. The double characteristics are there, but there’s some kind of sourness in it. Can’t say I don’t like it. Not an easy drinker though.
