craftbeersweden (574) - - JUN 15, 2013
UPDATED: DEC 16, 2014 Dark, dark brown, almoust black beer with a high (four finger) brownbeige head. A lot of lacing on the glass when the head slowly sinks down.

Nose: Lovely smell of roasted malt, dark chocolate, nuts, vanilla, coffee and brown sugar. A creamy, very nice welcoming and compelling nose!

Taste: Smoooth! Chocolate fudge, cacao, licorice, espresso, burned sugar, roasted malt, hops and grape fruit.

Body: Very creamy, smooth, full body with a great bitterness that stays for a long time back at the tounge.

This is so good! I wish it would never end - Just like Christmas!

chinchill (4269) - South Carolina, USA - JUL 29, 2016
22 oz bottle served in a goblet in July 2016. Black, opaque body with a thick, durable tan head. Appealing aroma of toffee and dark malts with hints of vanilla, dark chocolate and brown sugar. The flavor largely follows. Excellent balance. Plenty of dark roasted grain without significant smoke, char or other burnt qualities. Excellent mouthfeel from the full bodied, well (medium) carbonated liquid, although there is some mild alcohol heat. Overall: no need to restrict this beer to winter, it’s more than good enough to enjoy year around.
