4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Det här är en riktigt skön öl, stabil kropp, välbalanserad och ytterst välsmakande. Smaken bär inslag av rostad malt, choklad och en odefinierad fruktighet. Slutsats: bra jävla stout!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear, black body with a small, tan, reasonably long-lived head, ok lacing. Strong roasted aroma of coffee and green-ish coffee beans, and with the same piney feel as the Mohawk Blizzard Imperial Porter. Also quite herbal, and traces of tar and leather. Strong flavour of coffee, with a piney, herbal ashy background. Moderate to light sweet and moderate bitter taste. Close to full-bodied, dry texture and fairly soft carbonation. A good one.
[33 cl bottle, enjoyed 8 years before BB date, from Vinmonopolet Vika, Oslo]

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours near black with minimal light tan head. Aroma is roasted malt, licorice, nutty, hops, chocolate, vanilla. Taste is medium sweet and bitter. Body is is medium, texture is light creamy/watery, carbonation is near average. Finishes dry and astringent malty. Hides it’s ABV very well, I thought it was lower. I would prefer at little more body.
