3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
This one poured a darker brown color with a small brown head. Aroma was of mainly coffee and roasted malts. Not muh chcolate with light barrel. Flavor is very roasted and burnt coffee with light barrel to keep it form being too bitter, but the chocolate really isnt there much at all either.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
375ml bottle from Kihoskh, abv 13.5%. Pitch black, small creamy brown head, some lacing. Roasted barley aroma with a lot of bourbon, also vanilla, oak, leather and mild coffee notes. Soft carbonated, full-bodied, chewy and oily mouthfeel. Bourbon taste up front and behind the bourbon roasted and sweet taste. Smooth and creamy chocolate, toffee and vanilla, roasted barley, chalky cocoa, mild black coffee and licorice. Nice balance between the roasted notes, the sweetness and the bourbon, they all play their part well. Pleasantly warming finish.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tasted as 13,5% ABV. Pitch black color, minimal brown head. Aromas of chocolate, cacao, vanilla, wood, alcohol and bourbon. Taste of ’arraksbollar’ (basically chocolate pastries with arrack in them), vanilla, bourbon and chocolate. Warming finish with a lot of alcohol - too much alcohol, actually. That is also the only flaw with this beer. Brilliant.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Piwo to potężny (13,5%) mariaż nut drewna i burbonu, kakao, czerwonych owoców, kawy i paloności. Już zapach miażdży zmysły, a w połączeniu ze smakiem i posmakiem kokosu i wanilii rozwala system.
