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.

Enteogenisk (146) - Bålsta, SWEDEN - MAY 30, 2016
UPDATED: MAY 30, 2016 (33 cl bottle in wine glass.) Pours hazelnut to black with an almost two finger think beige head. Aroma is slight with fine hints of dark malts which carries through well on the palate with some distinct banana! A very balanced and well crafted beer. Long finish. Thanks!

felixll (31) - Rosemère, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 28, 2016
Bière brune bien translucide, col crème disparaissant rapidement. Arômes de caramel et de mélasse. Très ronde en bouche, mais pas outrageusement pour une scotch ale. Finale caramélisee et alcoolisée. Très bonne bière, a ré-essayer.
