kappldav123 (4700) - GERMANY - FEB 2, 2014
The bottle looks really, really good. Beer in the glass deep black, oily, nice head. Roasty malty aroma. Starts very strong, but not very alcoholic. Heavy-malty, earthy, roasty. Hints of liquorice and bitter chocolate. Finish milder, soft-malty, warming. The alcohol is well hidden. Great beer!

yngwie (13106) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - NOV 22, 2013
Bottle, 75cl. A more or less flat one, dark brown in color and quite clear. The aroma has a touch of bourbon, is quite roasted and coffee-ish, with vanilla and a touch of tarmac. Quite alcoholic on the palate, roasted and vanillaish flavor with coffee and tarmac. Full-bodied, warming and flat. Long roasted and boozy finish. Not a favorite of mine, goes in too many directions. 131122
