Bottled at RBESG. Black as night, beige head. Evident vanilla and oak aroma with cocoa and coffee underneath. Fairly sweet with full body. Careful soft chococlate and coffee flavour. Quite reminiscent of Kaggen, but with more oak and sweetness. Less salty licorice and more oak than in the regular version. Very well made.

2011-07-14, bottle, vintage 2007, 4 years old, 8-5-9-4-18=44
The color is totally black, with low carbonation, and a small brownish head of big bubbles and vortex. The aroma is bitonal, with vanilla driven oak and dark chocolate; leather too; light alcohol. The body is strong and the mouthfeel almost silky; the blend of chocolate, roasted malts and wood is sublime; there are side traces of liquorice, tar, leather, whisky; some residual sweetness, but moderate; good bitterness level, and very good alcohol management. The final is very chocolatey; light signs of oxidisation in the end.
Excellent.

Vintage 2005, 9-5-9-4-18=45

Black color; generous creamy head, reducing fast. Wonderful aroma, roasted malt, chocolate, light leather, but mostly a very good cheesy touch. Good body strength, perfect mouthfeel, massive caramel and chocolate flavor, with vanilla, light liquorice, leather, light fruity sourness; artfully blended together. Lovely!
