4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Semi-strong aroma with a bit roasted flavors of licorice, resin and alcohol. Very dark brown color with brown semi-thick head. The taste has almost everything: strong organic, malty, a bit roasted coffee flavor with wide taste spectrum. But, there is almost none sweetness as the aroma suggests. No licorice, tar etc.. Perhaps a glimpse of chocolate. Palate is too light for this style. Medium carbonation is ok.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: NOV 12, 2013 A pitch black beer with a medium, dense and light brown head. The nose is roasted with coffee, at the same time also strongly citrusfuity and fresh, liquirice, some sweetness, hint of pine needles and strawberries. Taste is powerfull, strongly roasted and grapefruity, strong bitterness, some black coffee. The end is very long and strong, sour and grapefruity bitterness stays in the mouth. Medium+ bodied, low carbonation, quite smooth to drink. The powerfull beer with the strong and grapefruity hoppyness, very enjoyable.
