Found this bottle in my bottleshop "Systembolaget" almost at my work. Just got to try it!

This beer pours dark brown to black, clear with a one finger high, beige, head. Almost no lacing on the glass.

Nose: Wow! This is nice! Caramel malt, roasted malt, molasses, fudge, chocolate, coffee beans, nut cake, licorice and smoke. Some butterscotch in there to!
Taste: Licorice, dark chocolate, cacao powder, roasted caramel malt, tobacco, plum and prune.
Mouth: Medium body and carbonation. Light dry ending. Complex "oily" texture.

I really love this - I’m going back for more!

Butelka z datą: 01.08.2016
WYGLĄD: Barwa czarna, nieprzejrzyste. Piana drobna, niska.
AROMAT: Średnio intensywny. Konfitura z czarnej porzeczki i jagód, nuta czekoladowa oraz kawowa.
SMAK: Słodowe. Lekko kawowe, taki sam posmak. Alkohol dobrze ukryty.
OGÓLNIE: Aromat znacząco zawyżył ostateczną ocenę. Smak raczej przeciętny, bez fajerwerków.

@ 2d Tilquin English Beer Festival + Open doors Un peu comme une bière de Noël mais plus maltée et fruitée et finement houblonnée. Capiteuse. Comme si je goûtais du pain de seigle caramélisé au levain avec des fruits confits accompagné de saveurs boisées. En arrière bouche, revient un maltage chocolaté bien soutenu par le degré alcoolique. Le tout se termine par une amertume acre et tranchante à la fois. Une bière à laper!

Kolor: czarny z rubinowymi refleksami, wydaje si? by? lekko mglisty. Piana be?owa, ?rednio wysoka i ?rednio trwa?a. Aromat: na pierwszym planie palono??, dalej karmel z odrobin? kawy. W smaku jest bardzo podobnie, cho? odnosi si? wra?enie, ?e aromat by? zdecydowanie intensywniejszy. Goryczka: lekka, przypalona, wysycenie niskie.
