3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Damn! I wasn’t the first one to rate this =) I didn’t know I was supposed to "stir" either. The brew has a thick brown head. Reminds me a lot of Sinebrychoff Porter by the way. Almost completely black colour. Musty but average strength aroma of juniper, fruits and chocolate. Extremely thick taste of chocolate and tar. Oily and thick, leaves a plastic coating in the mouth.

Bottled. A pitch black beer with a brown head. The aroma is sweet malty with notes of roasted malt, and lighter notes of soy sauce, caramel, and chocolate. The flavor is sweet with notes of roasted malt and chocolate, as well as light notes of straw, leading to a dry roasted finish.

(Bottle 33 cl) Courtesy of tbone_. Clear, dark brown with a reddish hue and a creamy, beige head leaving a neat lacework. Sweetish aroma of caramel and roasted malt. Rather full body with plenty of roasted malt and burned caramel and even some fruit. The finish is dry. Quite interesting. 270707

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: AUG 26, 2008 Courtesy of Degarth. Pours dark brown with tan head. The aroma is mild with notes of dark malts, chocolate malts, faint roastiness, light dark fruity esters and some earthiness. The taste is roasty dark and moving toward toastiness. I get a bit of chocolate mixing with raisins and other dark fruity ester notes. Smooth and drinkable.
