Bottled. A dark amber beer with a brown head. The aroma is sweet with notes of malt, caramel, and prunes. The flavor is sweet malty combined with notes of caramel and prunes, leading to a dry finish where the prune note lingers. Thanks yespr for sharing.

(Bottle 33 cl) Courtesy of yespr. Pours an opaque black with a rough beige head. Sweetish aroma of hard roasted malts and some oak. Solid body with plenty of roasted malts and dried fruit - even an oaky touch. A little low in carbonation and the bitterness is subdued. Quite lovely. 220808

Quite nice, but the dried fruits are too dominating.

Black color; big head. Nice aroma, roasted malt, hop, very light liquorice and yeast. Medium mouthfeel, quite dry; aggressive roasted malt flavor, too much for my taste; some malt and caramel too. The final is too dry and too bitter. Not bad.
