From the bottle (thanks, Jan!). Very dark colour, virtually black, with a thick brown head. Looks like a large frothy espresso. Wonderful aromas of roasted malts and black coffee. The taste is complex with lots of roasted coffee flavours and subtle juniper tones, as if there is hint of Tanqueray gin hiding there. Also powerful liquorice notes and hints of tobacco and dried fruit. There is a long and fortifying dry finish with a good hoppy quality. This is a very special brew, full of character and depth with superb balance. Bravo Lervig and Holmen!

Darker than opaque, very interesting smell. Strong beer with lovely taste. Sweet and enjoyable. Coffee and malt are the primary notes. Slightly odd butterscotch notes from tap.

Countbeer (5337) - Best of E-Town mit 2 Brauhausen, NETHERLANDS - FEB 21, 2014
Bottle: Thanks Papsø: Served in a shaker glass: Medium sized creamy brown foamy heqd on top of a black colored beer. Loads of different forms of liquorice in the aroma as well as burned liquorice, burned wood, bay leaf... Just a crap load of liquorice! Flavour has the strong different iquorice tones too, but herein the malts, roast/burn and even some coffee tones are also present. Difficult with that many liquorice tones, reminds me a bit of the Saranac Imperial Stout. Aftertaste has the strong liquorice too, but as in the taste there’s also a bitterness, some dried leaves, burn and roast tones and some espresso... Low carbo, creamy mouthfeel, full bodied and a creamy sticky texture. Nice bitterness. Somewhat round, bit complex, but leaning too much to one side. Pretty nice!

CraftBeerNick (1274) - London Town, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 29, 2014
Tap at the Cardinal in Stavanger, 28th January 14. Black, some smoke in the aroma, palate is thin, too thin for the style, lacks richness. Taste is dry and bitter, some sweet undertones. OK, but not a patch on Konrads Stout
