3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Coffe colored. Coffee taste. Brownish foam. Fresh fragrance of spruce needles and wet soil. Rich, nuanced bitterness, harsh accessibility. No everyday porter. This is an extreme beer for sure. Not bad, but not really my favourite either.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: FEB 5, 2013 Bottle from Systembolaget.
Dark brown/reddish with a small head.
Aroma hits with sweetness, honey and vanilla at first, then roasted malt, chocolate, coffee.
Taste is pretty sweet and spicy, has roasted malt and some red berries, vanilla and honey, coffee, chocolate and bitter/citrus hops as well. After taste is long and has a nice bitter hop punch to it. Had this one two months ago and it has already mellowed a bit regarding the alcohol taste. Really looking forward to how it will develop further.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Kind of sad I forgot to rate the retired version, but gotta say this one is better. Pours a deep burgundy to black with a fairly big tan head that drops quickly, leaving lacing. Aroma of roasty malt, dark and bitter chocolate, coffee beans, hints of soy, wood. Alcohol definitely present. You can tell it’s more to the bitter side of the spectrum. Taste confirms this, a fairly heavy initial coffee bitterness that builds up into the finish for a quite pungent character. Body is somewhat light for the style (medium) and oily. Low carbonation. Will probably improve with aging.
