33 cl bottle. Thanks tiong!
Pours black color with a small beige head. Aroma is burnt and malty, some mild licorice notes, roastiness, faint chocolate and distant coffee. Flavor of roasted malts, licorice, coffee notes, citric fruits and resinous hops. Medium to strong carbonation, fits this body perfectly, sweetish bitter and a bit burnt palate. Very nice and a positive surprise.

x ml sample, thanks veliemboys. Pours a black colour with a small white head. Aroma of strong salty licorice, resin and raspberries. Rich flavour of roasted malts, strong citrusy bitterness, biscuit, grapefruit and rather sweet fruitiness as well. Almost full bodied and a long, lingering bitter, warming finish. Heavy stuff. Great.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottled, BB 17-12-15, large sample. Dark color, medium almost creamy brownish head. Aroma of roasted malts, hint of fruity candy, pine, grapefruit, dark chocolate, hint of cherry even. Quite bitter in taste, some malty sweetness in the back. Slight hint of alcohol, which is actually the only downside of the beer. I already liked till the bitter end and I am seriously impressed with the latest additions Praght has made. Another wonderful beer!
