2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
The beer is black with a thin khaki head. Smells of roasted malt and bitter baking chocolate. A bit of toffee and molasses with a mild coffee aroma and perhaps a hint of dark fruit. The flavor is lightly sweet, mostly from the dark fruit notes, which consists largely of prunes. Fairly heavy on the roasted malt with some coffee and a mild flavor of dark chocolate.

Deep mahogany with a tight beige head, clear with a good steady bead. Light malt/spice aroma. Medium to full body, nice malty flavours with a spicy finish, citrus hoppy notes lurking in the background. Nice beer.

En frisk humlet smag, men overraskende lidt tynd i kroppen, hvilket gør man kan drikke noget mere, og det er vel også en kvalitet.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cola brown with pork scraching brown cream foam. Light malty chocolate, coffee, nutty, floral and bit on the weak side. Palate, mediu/light body with sharp bitterness leading to harsh aftertaste. Taste, of bitter chocolate, cough syroup, herbs like dandi lion. Overall, interesting, unusual for its type, very harsh bitter, more herbal tastes than smokey or chocolate that is usual, quite intense and strong flavours, interesting and definatly worth a try!

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Sainsbury’s. Dark brown, not a lot of head. Dark chocolate and burnt toast in the aroma, with some liquorice and a trace of stone fruit. Taste is bitter and quite harsh with a charcoal-like taste. Dry finish. Not bad but not subtle enough for me.
