Bottle, 33cl. At home @10°C
Pours black with a brown head. Sweetish aroma of hard roasted malts and some oak. Solid body (roasted malts and hints of fruit). Below average carbonation which allows the aroma to be in the foreground. Very well balanced beer. Certainly of one of the best beers of this brewery.

Mörkt brun till svart öl med beige skum. Doft av kaffe, mörk choklad och malt. De rostade tonerna i smaken är mjuka och behagliga. Lättare inslag av aska tillkommer i smaken.

bottle, brought to me by my parents - Dankeschön! Clear deep dark black colour, dense and creamy brownish-beige head. Looks like oil floating into my glass. Deliciously malty nose. Full-bodied, flavours of malt, roasetd malt, coffee, dark chocolate and cocoa powder, combined with a shy fruityness of dark dried fruits, raisins, prunes... Lingering finish with a shy touch of aromatic hops. Perfectly balanced, a delicious brew.
