On tap at Haket, Göteborg. Served too warm for my taste. ABV varies between 3.9-4.1%. Black colour, low tan head. Burnt and smoky aroma. Roasty flavour, notes of coffee. Very tasty for its strength.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Any first impressions?
-A ring stands on the opaque black.
-Milk chocolate powder heralds a dry dessert.
-Tasty roasted malts almost evolve into smokiness, convincing their bready companion to linger.
-This has a very healthy mouthfeel for its size, nutritious yet easily drinkable, well carbonated yet never a chore.
What if you dig deeper?
-The fruitiness of dates makes a polite appearence.
-The strong roastiness verges on being vegetal.
-A simple but efficient flavor profile cannot help but create a very competent dry stout.
Bottle; best before June ’06.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Good-looking, opaque black shade, offering a large, lasting, perfect light tan head of quality lacing. Generously roasty nose procures a rather smokey profile. Char wood, burning tobacco and light fruits (grapes) make for most of the taste development, but the smoke seems integrated and inherent to it all, adding a whisper of originality to an otherwise apparently BJCP-aimed brew. Limited acidity despite potentially american hops. A potential standard-bearer dry stout, hitting right on in every aspect and finishing strong and with roastiness at length despite natural watery edges in the light-medium mouthfeel of soft and gentle carbonation. Perfect execution.

UPDATED: OCT 2, 2011 First rating
Draught at The Rover, Gothenburg, February 05, 2006.
Close to black color, fruity scent and taste.
Draught at GW68, Stockholm, August 16, 2010
Black color with dark brown hints in the bottom, fluffy lasting tan head. Licorice, butter, nutty taste. Coffee and roasted, almost burnt, aftertaste. Moussy mouthfeel, medium dry bitterness. Lactic, sweet, roasted scent, some sweet licorice.
Less evident phenoles that in many other beers from Nynäshamns.
Not a favourite stout still, not after tasting so many after I rated this the first time, but fairly enjoyable. I have tasted it many times since my first rating, though never taken the time to re-rate until now.

Dark brown to black color, light brown head. Sweet,malty, roasted scent. Sweet, herbal, malty taste. Mineral aftertaste. Medium thin mouthfeel, medium bitterness. Some licorice.
