On tap at Crowbar, Oslo. Almost black with a creamy beige head. Dark fruit and espresso nose. Tart berries mingle with roast coffee beans. Good mouthfeel. Special.

Pours thick like syrup, black with a small tan head. The nose is heavy wood, rye spiciness, chocolate and booze. It's decadent. The taste is soft and creamy, the body is heavy and finish is huge! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Aroma is dark malts, vinous/dark fruit and a liquor/bourbon quality. The flavor is dark malts, vinous notes, mild/medium spiciness from the rye and a mix of tartness and acidity in the finish.

Bottle. Pours a near black color with a smallish light brown head. I get some of the grains in the nose, but some roasting and chocolate really is forward in the nose. Taste is quite similar, with a hint of sweetness up front but a tad bit of bitterness on the back end. Really smooth and easy drink. I like it muchly.

mcnealc31 (255) - Elida, Ohio, USA - MAR 25, 2013
Completely opaque with a dark, thin head. Rather inviting aroma of rye, chocolate, and dark fruit. Extremely smooth and complex. Layer upon layer of flavor. Rye and chocolate first, then figs, currants, charred wood, and burnt marshmallows. There is a hint of sweetness followed by a lasting chalky finish. Deceptive 9% ABV. This is outstanding. Get it.

Brandman (2824) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAR 25, 2013
Black body, brown head. Aroma is very rich and complex, some roasted malts, chocolate, coffee and dark caramel with medicinal and herbal hoppiness. Palate is full and really ovewhelming. Bitterness is high but its balanced well with malty sweetness. Extremely nice beer.

Well roasted maltiness, bready rye, chocolate flavour, some herbal spice to it too underneath all the first mentioned thing.

Bottle. Deep brown pour with dense tan coloured head. Chocolate dominates the nose with some alcohol and roasted grain. Flavours are amazing. Silky smooth with heaps of cocoa sweetness and just enough roasted grain on the finish to balance. Slick full mouthfeel. Brilliant stuff. Really enjoyed this one.
