tfredvik (1505) - Oslo, NORWAY - JAN 7, 2013
Pours a pitch black body with a large, creamy, light-brown body that stays thick for a very long time before reducing to a fully lasting layer that leaves lots of foam on the glass. A perfect looking beer! The aroma is very inviting and strong, with heavy roasted notes, dark caramel, coffee, chocolate, fruits and some alcohol and earthy notes in the back. I actually don’t get any particular spicy aromas. The taste is moderate sweet with a heavy bitter finish that feels a bit sharp, stingy and herbal the first few sips, but still lovely. The finish is everlasting with extreme amounts of coffee. Dark roasted flavours with chocolate in the back and quite obvious alcohol. After a while I start noticing the subtle christmas spices. The spices are extremely well integrated and difficult to pinpoint, but they really add an extra layer to this wonderful stout. One of the best christmas beers available in Norway?
