aroma is insanely strong coffee which covers everything else, might not work for most but works for me. taste is coffee medium sweetness. Finish is sticky heavy sweetness that sticks in ur mouth. alcohol burn at the very end but doesnt affect my rating.

Smaskifa (122) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 7, 2013
Tap at Beer Palace, Oslo, on their 20th anniversary. I had this one along with the fourth edition, which was an interesting experience. Pours pitch black with a minimal beige head. The aroma is very fruity and malty, malt extract, brown sugar, sugar syrup, coffee. The taste is dominated by sweetness, almost to a sickening level. You feel the brown sugar, malt extract, sugar canes, a wee bit of prune. The finish feels like black coffee mixed with sugar, and reminds me a little of Baily’s as well. Very sweet finish but you also get a nice kick of some proper licorice which is nice. The palate is pleasant and full on, well carbonated for the style. I’ve got a bottle which will be left to mature for a little while still, so maybe it’ll develop some new characters in a few years. Generally this one is too sweet, I guess you can easily share a 0,25 bottle on four people.

Beerdedone (2609) - Croydon, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 31, 2013
Bottle. Pours a deep dark black with a thin tan head. Aroma of coffee beans, roasted malts, rich chocolate, brown sugar and alcohol. Flavor was very sweet and intense with brown sugar, dark fruit, molasses, chocolate, licorice, coffee and had a touch of smoke with a nice warming semi dry finish.

Simonsen (640) - NORWAY - MAR 29, 2013
0.25 flaske drukket på hytta med esp0r. Køl svart uten skum eller karbonering. Mørke smaker. Kaffe,kandissukker,lakris,karamell. En fornøelig liten sak som funker som dessert. Greit med liten flaske siden den er på 15.5%

JFURYCAT (1079) - East Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 16, 2013
Like sherry with heavy dark fruit tone and aroma with a dry envelope surrounding it which seems to have an almost sticky burnt character to it.

jonnyguns (904) - AUSTRALIA - MAR 9, 2013
Bottle from mane liquor. Cheers once again josh! Sexy jet black pour with a small tanned head. Awesome lacing left clinging to the glass. Nose has vanilla, oak, chocolate and dark fruits. The taste brings out the coffee notes with a large sweetness about it. Almost a candied type toffee sugariness about it. Because of the sweetness the booze isn’t overly noticed...which is something I’ve come to expect from nogne o. This is an exceptional beer ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ration (1928) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAR 2, 2013
020313. Bottle at home. Pours black with almost no head. Oily texture. Aroma roasted malts, coffee, licorice. Strong sweet taste, still after a year or so. Needs more aging. Not Bad.

TheJestersBeer (2039) - SWEDEN - FEB 25, 2013
250ml bottle. Pours pitch black, with a thin brown head. Huge aroma, roasted malt, coffee, licorice, dark chocolate, tar, ashes. Sweet, full bodied, high bitterness, creamy CO2. Thick, complex taste, coffee, roasted malt, figs, chocolate, licorice. Sugary, thick mouthfeel, almost like a PX Sherry. Quite compact at this stage, I wish I had another bottle for further cellaring. (2013-02-23)

laiti (5629) - Helsinki, FINLAND - FEB 24, 2013
25 cl bottle @ home. Batch #373: bottled 03.07.2009, BBE 03.07.2018
Aroma is somwehat stale with licorice, rubber, alcohol and hay. Flavour is slightly sweet with ripe fruits, coffee, licorice, some alcohol and syrup. Also some herbal notes in the dinish. This used to be sweet, hoppy and messy. Now this is just sweet with too much alcohol.
