2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
A dark red-brown beer with a thick brown head. The aroma is sweet with light roasted notes. The flavor is sweet and very roasted as well as malty, but also with a acidity from the roasted malt is lingering in the background. I find it boring - it needs more punch.

(Bottle 35,5 cl) Courtesy of yespr. Pours a slightly hazy light brown with an orange hue and a dense, creamy, beige head. Distinct aroma of roasted malt and licorice. Medium body with burned and slightly ashy malt notes and again these very distinct licorice flavours - almost salty - before a fairly bitter finish. 180807

BBE Oct 06. Opaque dark brown beer. Crisp palate. Lots of bitter toffee and molasses and unsweet licorice. Finishes crisp with some carbonated bite and more unsweet licorice. Another unusual beer in the Patriot collection. Very drinkable and rich.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 3/20
Bottle, 10 months past BB date. Very phenolic aroma. Very dark brown colour with a red shine. Very small light brown head. The flavour is also very phenolic and has lots of raw liquorice. Late liquorice aftertaste. I seem to be alone in tasting the phenol, but it is nevertheless horrible to me.

3.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Smoky aroma, more hints of chocolate than anything else. Dark brown color, hints of red in strong light, tiny bubbles. Tan head which persissts. Definite licorice/anise in the start. It lingers, but some bitter comes forth to finish. Maybe some herbs. Don’t know what happened to the hints of chocolate.
