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.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. 12.12%. No ’best before’ date. Pours black with a dark tan head. Bit of lacing. Slightly tart aroma with a wooden overtone. Sweetish as it warms. Flavour is sweetish at first, with a bourbon note and a wooden overtone. As it warms, the sweetness increases, bordering molasses. Sweet, dark fruit and bourbon finish with an alcohol burn. A bit tart. Overall pretty good, but not as good as the regular version; not as complex. 30.01.14.

Bottle. Pours cloudy very dark brown with cream dark tan head. Clear aroma of oak cask, fruit, malt, caramel, and chocolate. Sweet flavour of chocolate, and malt, with hints of liquorice and discernible presence of whisky. Mildly bitter finish of alcohol, with sweet, caramellish notes. Creamy mouthfeel. Goregeous.
