Bottle at Akkurat. Opaque black liquid with minimal tan head. Aroma of licorice, cognac, oak, chocolate, tobacco (snus), biscuit and some light leather. Nicely complex. Taste is light to medium sweet and light to medium bitter with notes of chocolate, licorice, biscuit and cognac. Medium to full bodied with low to medium carbonation and very velvety liquid. Delicious.

brokensail (12169) - Orange County, California, USA - SEP 24, 2012
The beer is black with a small tan head. A touch of booze up front on the aroma followed by heavy roasted malt, a touch of smoke, and dark chocolate. Moderate cognac along with vanilla sweetness and a hint of caramel. The flavor is a touch bitter at first with heavy dark chocolate, roasted malt, and cocoa powder. Sweet cognac, oak, and vanilla balance this out, as does some caramel and molasses.

dreadnord (1013) - San Diego, California, USA - SEP 16, 2012
Pours thick and black with a big tan head. Nose is heavy booze, raisins, vanilla, smoke and wood. Taste is bitter smoke with a big amount of sweet to balance. Amazingly smooth mouthfeel, soft, big heavy body and a long drawn out finish. Amazing beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

yngwie (14669) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - SEP 12, 2012
On tap at HaandFestival 2012. A good looking beer, black, and topped by a small, firm, tan head. Booze, roasted malts, licorice, chocolate notes and some prunes on the palate. It’s full-bodied, warming and soft on the palate, with flavors of licorice, roasted malts, booze, bitterness and some faint burnt notes. A little citrus peel hint as well. Lasting finish with roasted malts and a good bitterness. Pure, lasting joy. 120504

Rating 1700. Bottle @ Akkurat, still have the bottle on display. Black pour with some brown head. Dark malts, light fruit, licorice, wood, cognac, sweetness and some balancing stronger flavors. Very nice barrel aged brew. Wish we could get some narke more often.

Big thanks to nbutler11 for this. I was pretty sure I’d never see a bottle of this beer. It pours deep mahogany with tan head and leaving behind some nice staining of the glassware. The aroma is nice with dark roasted malts, spicy oak, molasses, chocolate brownie and some dark roasted coffee. The taste is rich with slivers of spicy oak bathing in sweet molasses and rimmed with chocolate fudge brownie and smooth Cognac like booziness. It ends, or does it ever end as it lingers and lingers, with crusty molasses, chocolate and spicy oak. Yummers!
