omhper (23724) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - OCT 4, 2010
Bottled at Stockholm Beer Festival. Thick black, no head. Sugary aroma. Oily and thick, a bit of coffee and roastiness, mostly brown sugar and some bready syrup. Sweetness numbs my tastebuds and just makes wonder how they got all this sugar dissolved into liquid. More a chemical experiment than a beer.

Opaque black beer. Good light brown head, short lived. Milky coffee nose. Very sweet coffee, sugary sweet. Very slight tang. Warmth from the alcohol. Mild minerals. Whisper of hop in the finish. Achieves it’s aim of being a dessert beer but could use some more complexity.
