500ml bottle thanks to tbadiuk. Best before 14.09.2013.
Appearance : Deep black with medium brown foamy creamy head. Not much lacing.
Aroma : Roasted malt with hops. Light coffee. Light chocolate. Not much alcohol.
Taste : Quite a lot of hops with some alcohol. Roasted malt and light coffee. Finish has great notes of dark chocolate with hops.
Overall : A bit too much alcohol on the first part of the finish. Second part is very nice with hops and nice dark chocolate. Not much smoke. I really think there’s a bit too much alcohol on the finish. Still it’s an enjoyable. Alcohol smooth out a bit at the end. I’ll let my second bottle age a while.

Maria (10176) - 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 (8755) - 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.
