Deep brown-black pour with a tight tan head. The aroma has a lot of sweet smoke and milk chocolate. A bit of soft cherry fruitiness along with some light cocoa. Fresh and chocolatey with a bit of soft pepper cutting through the finish. Very nice stuff.

Maria (10136) - Thisted, DENMARK - APR 21, 2011
It’s pitch-black with a light-brown, creamy head, and the aroma has notes of roasted malt, licorice, light smoke and dark fruits. The mouth-feel is fat. The flavour is sweet with notes of roasted malt, licorice, light smoke and dark fruits. Initially it’s fantastic, but after a while it seems to lack a bit to go the entire mile.

GT2 (8380) - San Diego County, California, USA - APR 12, 2011
330mL shared with Travlr at Bishops Arms Folkungagatan, Stockholm, Sweden. The pour is a deep, deep ruby with a thinning, tan head. Not much retention and weak lace. Aroma is not too smoky, more salty, pimento, olives. Really just giant black olive nose. Taste is bacon, smoke, alcohol, Baileys Irish Cream, meaty, sweet maple, spicy chocolate. Really just outstanding. Palate is sharp, big carbonation, prickly, but ends up oily.

Bottle at The Bishops Arms Folkungagatan, great recommendation from staff. Very dark brown, small brown head. Aroma of French roast coffee. Taste is dark cocoa with a burnt edge. Subtle and complex. Great stuff.

Pour is near black with butterscotch beige head. Getting a lot of smoke, iodine, burned wood. Big smoky flavours, char, tobacco, sweet malt and salted black licorice, but also a bit of wet grass/hop/peat aroma. Creamy taste, sticky mouthfeel. Not overly sweet, dry ash finish.

esp0r (1974) - NORWAY - MAR 21, 2011
Bottle @ Ölrepubliken shared with Daje. Black, no head. Some lacings on glass, so it’s not ugly :) Smells of bacon, smoke, burned wood and some foot sweat. Taste is egg and bacon. Some sweetness. Too much smoke i’m afraid. Oily feel. Finish is not very hoppy.
