Smells like burnt rubber, with hints of vanilla and cocoa. The taste is terrible - smoke, burnt wood, rubber, acid, ugly stuff. As a disclaimer: I am not a big fan of beer aged in peated whiskey barrels.

Köpt från Boxbeer. Svart färg med smutsbrun skumkrona. Doft av krutrök, torv och tjära. Söt, torr och syrlig som ett isterband. Smak av rökta charkuterier, lakritspastill, tjära och choklad. Torra efterklanger.

Echon (281) - Århus, DENMARK - SEP 8, 2015
Tap at Fairbar. Black body with no head. Great sweet aroma with liquorice and fruit. The taste is very rich, with lots of sweetness and an extreme amount of coffee. Lots of roasted malts, with a bit of smoke from the barrels and also a pinch of saltiness. Full body with low carbonation. The finish is dominated by the liquorice. I savoured the first sips but then it started to go downhill. The overwhelming sweetness and low carbonation make this beer very cloying. I had a small pour but by the time I was halfway through, I did not feel like finishing it. The balance was axed in the pursuit of extremity.

Draught at Mikkeller. Rich dark coffee character, brown sugar, spicy whiskey bite, notes of tobacco and licorice, dry finish. Quite smooth and balanced for such a big beer.
