0.25L bottle, purchased @Systembolaget Norstan. A layer of small choco-brown bubbles, covering a jet black body. Modest aroma of slight ashy dark malts, salty licorice and a coffee-like scent.

Nice creamy texture. Complex malty-roasted-bitter finish. A really nice Stout.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Lovely black, oily viscosity. Dark foam and nice lacing. A bit tart aroma with hints of liquorice/ ammonium chloride, a tar smokiness, and julmust (Swedish root beer style soda for Christmas). Powerful on the palate. First some fruit then tar pastille, raw liquorice (root), and coffee. A well balanced bitterness emerge from below which gives the dry finish a nice timbre. A really heavy stout both in taste and character. A bit thin body though.

Enriktigt mörk öl med medelfylligt ljusbrunt skum. En doft av lätt rökighet, aska och rostat kaffe. Smak av rostad malt, kaffe, lakrits och choklad. En torr och trevlig beska i eftersmaken, vilken dröjer sig kvar riktigt länge.
