3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
50 cl bottle @ Tampella, BBE 21.01.2015
Aroma has roasted malt and some cocoa – feels like a German dunkel. Perhaps also some licorice. Flavour has licorice, berries, roasted malt and woody tones. Some chili tones here too. Palate is a bit too high on CO2. Still feels like dunkel, what is the snuff or Belgian here? Too sweet anyway.

earthy licorice and spice aftertaste with roasty dried fruit

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On bottle at Beer 13 festival in Oslo 19/04/13. Pours a dark colour, almost black with a tan head. Aroma of strong licorice and tobacco, together with a quite sweet smell. Flavour is much licorice, a bit too much for me, notes of tobacco, candysugar, leaves and some leather. A bit bitterness in the finish. Medium body with low carbonation. Overall, this was a bit too much licorice for me, but it’s a good beer in small portions imo. Interesenting to try though!
