2013 & 2010 Gold Medal Winner at the Great American Beer Festival in the Foreign Stout category.

That time of year when the day seems to fade away. Drifting further into the darkness with each passing day. Volume 1 - Foreign Stout - Pours black with licorice, espresso bean, molasses, and black cardamom notes that give way to a feeling of self loathing, burnt opportunities and smoked relationships.

Fruity, bready and coffee aroma. Totally balck. medium on the palate and i a little oily and velvety. A little sweet. Hops are not that detectable, just faintly bitter on the finish. The malt flavor is perfect combination of coffee, cocoa, molasses and deep roasted malts. Unbelievable for the price. Great value.

Flaska från SB. Kolsvart oljig vätska med brunt skum, lämnar en del rester på kanten. Härliga rostade toner delar plats med mörk choklad, fudge, nötighet, torkade plommon och russin och en aning granskottsbeska. Mycket av allt utan att det drar iväg för mycket. Medelstor och något oljig kropp, lagom kolsyrad. Smaken återspeglar doften. Växer i munnen och når höjdpunkten i efterbeskan som hänger kvar en bra stund. Stora toner av bitter, mörk choklad och rostade kaffetoner. Trevlig! Det den saknar i min bok är att den gärna hade fått vara ännu tyngre och fylligare, men det är mer min personliga preferens (hellre imperial än foreign export).

Black with light brown head. Coffee, peat of all things and toasty malt. The nose makes me just want to sniff this stout instead of drinking. Bitter, just slightly sweet with coffee. Fricking great.

Hopmaestro (848) - Örebro, SWEDEN - NOV 23, 2015
Aroma is roasted malts, coffee. Taste brings espresso notes, a slight earthy feeling with dark chocolates on top. A good and pleasant bitterness in the aftertaste. Slightly malty in the end.

UPDATED: NOV 28, 2015 Very smooth roasted grain flavor. Great go to dark beer. I didn’t realize there are different volumes of this beer.

355ml bottle from Systembolaget. Black with a small mocha head, good lacing. Roasted and light smoky notes in the aroma with licorice, espresso beans, chocolate and cloves. Very smooth and creamy mouthfeel, mildly carbonated. Roasted malt in taste, freshly brewed coffee with hot milk, liquorice and molasses.

@ Basunen 15-11-21: lite lätt rökig doft. Smaken är ganska lätt och rätt mjölkig. Små brända toner.
