22 oz bottle into a Samuel Smith pint glass. A: Pours an ultra-dark brown color. The head is a two finger mocha shade featuring a nice texture and perhaps even nicer retention. Looks good in a glass, that’s for sure (especially the Samuel Smith pint glass, which almost seems tailor made for stouts). S: Wowee, this one is very forward in its mocha, chocolate, and roasted barley qualities. Oats are faintly notable, as well. I’m pretty impressed, actually. T/M: Dry, dry, dry. This opens dry/bitter, finishes dry/bitter, with seemingly no room for sweetness anywhere. There’s a slight ping of chocolate to start before coffee, roasted barley, and oatmeal all take over. I notice a dimension of piny hops on the back end, too that never overpower everything else. I reckon it’s a bit more airy-feeling than I like; I’d kill for a silkier texture, or maybe it’s just lower carbonation I’d kill for. The latter quality is the only thing that bugs me here - it allows it to come off as being too dry and even a bit rough at times. O: One has to love how drinkable this is. The lack of creamy softness is easy to overlook for this reason. I wouldn’t trade for it; but I would buy it again if I ever caught it in a store.

On tap at Crowbar, july 14th 2015. Black body with a brown head. Aroma is roasty with chocolate and strong espresso. Taste is bittersweet, mild milky sweetness with bitter coffee and roast, lightly hopped. Resembling of a not too sweet iced coffee, with a burned end, light notable alcohol. A very nice beer

yngwie (16315) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - FEB 13, 2016
On tap at Både&. A dense finger thick dark beige head forms over a more or less black body. Nice curtains. Roasted, lightly burnt aroma with hints of charcoal and a good dash of dark chocolate and coffee. Lovely but a tad weak. More pronounced flavor, with roasted malts and a good dash of espresso and dark chocolate. Bready hints. Decent bitterness too. Lasting roasted, coffee-ish finish. Dry, nicely carbonated and smooth on the palate. A really fine one, well worth a revisit. 160213
