4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Draught at the brewpub
Black color, with brown creamy head. The aroma is wonderful, for the tobacco presence that goes with the silky roasted malts; there are traces of coffee, vanilla and cream; it’s like the best coffee shop cup; persistent, elegant. Smooth mouthfeel; good body structure; it has a strong flavor of roasted malts and black coffee, with some tobacco, leather, liquorice, vanilla, cream. The bitterness an alcohol combination create a pleasant piquant note in the end.
Multidimensional, yet everything fits in it; excellent.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the Brewpub in December 2012.
Black with a small tan head. A lot of vanilla both in the aroma and taste, a bit too much according to me. Also roasted malt, coffee, some notes of "medicin", wood and some light notes of hops. Not bad, but a bit too much vanilla.
