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.
