Bottle at 17th PINT winterbier festival, Gouda. Pours black with a tan head. Aroma of spice and coffee. Flavor is bittersweet, a really well drinkable stout with some spices in the finish. Could easily drink a lot of this.

Nice citrus aroma and that beautiful thick stout darkish head. Flavor is a beautiful malty chocolate with a nice lingering aftertaste that is a little bitter.

Bottle. [thank you Skortila/caesar]
Pours deep brown with a giant, frothy, beige head. Fizzes away rather slowly. Mild toasted toffee aroma, light milky chocolate and a touch of roasted malts. A bit weak mouthfeel, medium carbonation. Flavour is lovely, though. Mild, elegant roastiness, milky chocolate. Toffee and a touch of coffee. Very long, lingering aftertaste.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Deep brown color, good creamy beige head. Toasted coffeish, licorice aroma, a bit similar to Slottskällans IS. Later also some earth and metal. Flavor is suprsingly quite weak and mouthfeel is thin and watery for a beer of this strength. Light coffee, toasted malts, chocolate, but these flavors are painfully toned down. Soft it is anyway.
