0,33 bottle at home. - Powerful chocolate and dark fruits, burnt bread and sweet nuts on the aroma. The flavor is very nutty with a slight flavor of wort and vanilla. The burning alcohol-flavor drags it down, though.

Flaska från SB. Legat i kylskåpet ett halvår drygt, flaskan kan säkert vara ca 1 år gammal. Mörk, näst intill ogenomtränglig kolabrun färg med tunt beiget skum som mestadels försvinner. Doftmässigt domineras den av övermogen och torkad frukt, lite bananpuré och bananbröd, mörk brödsirap, sött rågbröd, väldigt tydliga toner av muscovadosocker. Även en del kola och choklad. En lättare kaffeton anas också, typ iskaffe-drink eller islatte. Kropp åt det större och tyngre hållet som fyller ut munnen väl. I smaken framträder en humlebeska som håller upp den annars malttunga kroppen och ger den lite bett och pigghet. Mycket kola, karamell och choklad, men utan någon större sliskighet. Mer kaffe och tyngre, rostade toner i smaken. Håller överlag ihop snyggt. En stor öl. Utifrån min bedömning säkerligen en väldigt lagringsbar öl, men pga brist på utrymme behövde det rensas...

The beer is unclear and very dark brown almost black. The foam is dirty white and will properly. The foam has medium to large bubbles that hang around for a while. The foam leave direct track in the glass. Here you are met by quite malty aromas and a little toasted. With hints of dried fruits such as dates, raisins, a little chocolate. Some herbs and brown sugar, nuts and a little molasses. Something small wet wood tar echo. The flavors reminiscent of the scents of roasted malt in the beginning. Here are some more sweetness and more chocolate and a little caramel. Some dried fruits of dates and raisins. Certain orange towards the end. Medium to full body. Moderate Carbonic. A little sweetness and soft bitterness. A little alcohol on the end.

Köpt på SB. Mörkbrun färg med fluffig, smutsbrun skumkrona Doft av mörk fudge, körsbärslokör, sirap och knäck. Söt och frisk kropp med lite torr avslutning. Smak av knäck, smörkola, fudge, aprikosmarmelad, marsipan, ek- tunna och anis. Överraskande frisk för att vara så mörk och komplex.
