4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Rating #700 Bottle, huge thanks to IBrew2or3 for sharing. This beer was an experience. Poured black with a creamy dark brown head. Nose is intensely roasted with big notes of chocolate, oak, and brandy, lighter notes of vanilla, apple, and anise. Full body with a creamy, viscous mouth feel and soft carbonation. This beer is incredibly rich and decadent, I found the combination of roasty chocolate and apple brandy notes to be amazing. Finished moderately sweet with a lingering fudge note. Delicious!

Flaske: Kulsort øl med et lille skumhoved og nærmest tyktflydende olie i dens tekstur. Duften er ekstrem sødlig hvor calvados er tydelig. Smagen er igen fuldstændig domineret af en ekstrem sødlighed der fuldstændig overdøver alt andet. For meget for min kone, men jeg kunne sagtens nyde dens flydende dessert egenskaber, men 37 cl var faktisk for meget.

askofficerfriendly on the mad hookup! Black pour. Brown head. Loads of chocolate, molasses, booze, smoke, sherry...damn the flavor is even better. Chocolate heaven with some hints of sweet apples, raisins, molasses, light coffee and a hint of smoke. So good.

Thanks to bu11zeye for sharing this bottle.
The beer pours an inky black color with a few brown bubbles but no real head. The aroma is alcohol, dark fruit and roasted malt. The flavor is a mix of vanilla, brown, sugar, oak, smoke, cherries, other fruit and tobacco. Low carbonation and thick mouthfeel. A ridiculously complex beer that is very well done.
