NordicV (1293) - Malmö, Sweden, SWEDEN - FEB 5, 2014
Nästan helsvart öl med ett lättare ljusbrunt skum. Doften är som en efterrätt med choklad och alkohol. En chokladmousse med rom. Detsamma men något mer återhållet i smaken.

johnnnniee (2656) - Bedford, New Hampshire, USA - FEB 4, 2014
Bottle from 2005 leftover from the Tasters Choice meetup. Pours a solid dark brown with a huge bubbly tan head that persists forever. The aroma is heavy on the milk chocolate with bits of roast, dark fruit and a hint of sherry. The flavor is rich dark and milk chocolate with a little bit of caramel. Light fruity tartness with hints of earth. Medium body with a light to moderate level of carbonation and a sweet light syrupy mouthfeel. This bottle held up surprisingly well for its age! I may have to revisit a fresh bottle, because this was a pretty good beer.

Flavor is medium sweet, some oak in there. The sweetness is defintely present in there, not so overwhelming. Medium long, sweet aftertaste. Nice beer.
