4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle at Black night 10/2015. Aroma first impression pineapple. Then it turns to peppery and rich dark malts. Oily texture, pitch colour. Taste is simply great. Complex and rich malty flavours, caramel, toffee, toasted, chocolate milk and dark. Very intense. Also bold chilli hotness, appearing in the middle and lasting into a long roasted chilli moreish finish. True jewel.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 4/20
Pour is black with a tan bubbly head. Nose is heavy rum and ashy malt, hints of cake malt when swirled, but faint and overshadowed by ash. Flavor is worse than it smells, overly sweet and ashy, metallic note, faint malt but very little. Soft feel, full bodied, light carb.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, black black beer, black walnut colored head quickly fades to small islands and a ring. Aroma is molasses and smoke, molasses, vanilla, chocolate, chilies. Taste is vanilla, burnt sugar, chilies, oak, rum, stale coffee,
Palate is fairly rich, but not syrupy, carbonation subdued. Finish is a touch of hops, chilies, and toasted barley. This combo somehow doesn’t work for me. It’s more like stale coffee and sriracha than delicious.

355ml bottle from Systembolaget, bought in March 2015, ABV 14%. Black with a small compact, creamy beige head. Roasted and aged aroma, dark chocolate, vanilla and booze. Full-bodied, smooth, silky mouthfeel. The taste of oak barrels and rum takes over the big picture, hints of vanilla, espresso beans and the heat of the chili is in the background. Finish dry with wood and hay.
