4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle, 375ml. A dark beer with a brown hue at the top and a small brown head. Aroma is of alcohol, dark creamy chocolate, dried fruits and nuts. Taste is sweet and has a heavy roasted character. Almost no carbonation and considerable astringency. Aftertaste is very strong, somewhat reminds me of mint and doesn’t feel very alcoholic (which is surprising, considering its high ABV). A great beer indeed.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle, 375ml. Opaque dark brown with a minimal brown head. Sticky, heavy, musky alcohol and dried fruit aroma. Smells just like port wine. Oily and robust, with flat carbonation. Very sweet and low on bitterness, with a fiery alcohol and dark malt character. Has a raspy liqueur feel but is extremely rich and drinkable. The alcohol seems like water for a staggering 18.8%; it is expertly masked, yet preserves the heavyness that makes it seem more like an oporto than a beer. Magnificent, pushes the boundary on what can be considered beer.

4.4 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Sort som natta, med et lyse brunt skum (såpeaktig), dette holdt bra og la seg til slutt som en ring. Aroma av røstet malt, whisky, tequila, sjokolade, kaffe, og hint av sitrus. smaken følger aroma, menb her er alkoholen litt mer fremtredende, fint balansert øl med en oljete munnfølelse.

4.5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle @ Chmielarnia, Warsaw. Pours with almost no head, deeply black colour. It smells fantastic! Chocolate liquor, coffee, dark friuts, some whisky notes, some sour tequilla notes. It’s wow! It taste as good as it smells, great bitterness is a well ballance for it sweetness. And there are whisky and tequilla notes in taste also. The alcohol is quite high, but I don’t consider it as something bad. The finish is very long with a variety of notes. Excellent beer.
