3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
(Bottle) Very dark brown colour, almost black, with brief, bubbly head. Malty, roasted nose with notes of treacle, liquorice, soy sauce, burnt sugar, strong sweet espresso, oak wood and a touch of juniper berries. Malty, roasted taste with strong espresso, liquorice, anise, soy sauce, burnt sugar, treacle and oak wood. Full body, quite sweet, with a fair amount of alcohol shining through. Hardly balanced, quite extreme, and quite nice in moderate amounts.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
250 ML bottle
Thanks to Baggio for the bottle
Pours a clear orange brown. No head. Syrupy looking
Nose is apple, pear, vanilla, oak and slightly spicy. Well hidden ABV for what it is.
Lots of vanilla, oak, caramel and fruits in the taste. Very sticky sweet and thought this was more a BW than anything else. Very bold and yet restrained for what it was. Sticky and dry feel. Little to no carbonation. Would be a bit much to drink this on it’s own as would get very overbearing.

Bottle, tnx ohmper.
Murky brown. Funk, oak, vanilla. Lots of stuff packed in, but it is too, well, brutal. The elements bang against each other . Rather sweet, intense vanilla. For once, 0,25 l is plenty.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle bought at Systembolaget in 2011.
Almost black with no head. Aroma and taste of soy, malt, anis and alcohol. Unbalanced and not the best of beers.

@eddan: mörk doft av fat och arrak. Smaken är något lättare men mycket svårbestämbar. Mycket stark.

12th February 2012
Very hazy amber beer, few bubbles for a head. Semi dry palate with very modest carbonation. Saison? Belgian Strong? More like a Barley Wine I think! Sweetish caramel malt with a little dried fruits. Aniseed alcohol and alcohol evaporating dryness. Mild minerals.

Aroma is very malty and oaky. Very sweet with a good dose of oak flavor. Burns a bit on the way down. Almost like a barley wine. As a side note, this one might be a bit old.
