Full body, not too sweet with a spicy and peated rich flavor. This beer will accompany very well with hearty dishes.

(Drinking date: 3 June 2014) Pitchblack beer with a creamy beige layer of foam. Looks delicious! Aroma of smoke, wood, coffee, pure chocolate and metal. The taste is bitter, like a coffee-bitterness. The aftertaste is sweet with bitter, like chocolate-sweetness. All the way through the beer there is also a smoky taste. Nice taste. The mouthfeel is almost perfect. Flat to medium carbonation with an almost soft body (just slightly watery). Really nice beer! I am not a fan of the smoky taste, but it is not too much in this beer, so this beer is still really good. That’s why I give it the total score of 4.0!

33cl bottle @ home from Mitra. Nearly black color, no head. Aroma light red wine, wild yeast, roasty smell, flavor is extreme dark roasted coffee, dark chocolate, hint of rum / wine / sourcherry. Alcohol is slightly present. Taste hint of sweetness, very roasted bitterness (also quinine at the end), light to medium sourness. Full body, sticky texture, flat carbonation, roasted coffeeish bitter finish with long duration. Not an easy but a heavy dessert beer, very simple and very powerful. I don’t like the sourness, I miss the carbonation and takes time to drink it, but still a very interesting massive beer, just a little bit too much.
