4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
0.25l bottle @ Henrik, Bergen. This is the blackest brew I have ever seen. Jet black body with absofruitly no head. Definetly some whiskey/bourbon in the nose, sweet, vanilla and dried fruits. This is some heavy stuff. Really oaky as hell, salt, almost red wineish. Long lasting oaky flavor that never really ends. Fully bodied and quite alright carbonated. Warming alcohol and extreme woody roastines along with chocolate and a slightly flowerish and syrupy note. Good! Tary and fizzing body. Just a truly extremely good brew that I’ really glad to have tasted. A distinct STRONG roasted flavor all the way. This is my definition of dark.

Bottle @ home, thanks to Erik for the transatlantic courtesy toss. Black pour with a thin tan head. Smells of ash, bourbon, caramel, and roast. Mild soy sauce, vanilla, and some booze. Good sweetness of caramel and vanilla. Fair amount of bourbon, roast, coffee, and dark chocolate. Some rum raisin and booze on the finish. Nice.
