3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Heavy aroma - spread across the room when the bottle is opened. Dark chocolate coloured with a lace after a couple of seconds. Tastes like a porter to my surprise with some burnt sugar. Leaves a slightly burnt aftertaste.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
(Bottle). Soft aromas of chocolate, cocoa and roasted malt. The taste is soft with flavors of chocolate, coffee with milk, and roasted malt. The aftertaste has a slightly fruity tone and tangy bitterness that takes over the taste too much, it’s sad and it lowers the score slightly.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
0.5 L bottle, kindly shared by KnutAlbert. A brown layer of bubbles, covering an unclear dark brown body. Chocolate malts, dark dried fruits and toasted grainy malts in the aroma. Cocoa/chocolate is dominating the flavor as well. Some fine fruit tones in a addition, and hint of sour/ashy and bready tones. Light sweet and well-bodied. Thick mouthfeel. Fruity acidic endnotes. A pretty good one.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Oklar mörk brun-cola färgad med typ inget skum. Doft: Kaffe, alkohol, tång, gräs, torkade frukter, bränt socker. Smak: Kakao, kaffe, barr, citrus, blom äng, rostat korn, trä. Smaken är bättre sist jag öppnade en flaska, önskar dock att den vore kraftigare.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Good as hell! very tasty and very smell. The aftertaste is like a punch in the stomach. Yes absolutely wonderful it is, but it made a great deal to be perfect. Cloudy host to test if you manage to come across a bottle. This is my 200 beer i rate here at Rate Beer.
