Another great can from Ska Brewing with lots of dark bread, coffee and dry bitter chocolate. Takes off with sweet caramelmalt and develops into a more dark, dry and bitterhoppy aftertaste.

Ktwse (1836) - SWEDEN - APR 6, 2013
Pours black with a finger of frothy tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, german sausage, leather - a bit weak but could be because it was too cold. Taste is lightly balanced sweet, some vanilla, some chocolate and just a hint of coffee. Body is fairly light but creamy with low carbonation. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

NordicV (1090) - Malmö, Sweden, SWEDEN - APR 6, 2013
Nästan svart öl med ett ljusbrunt skum. Doft av choklad, lakrits och mörka bär. I smaken så träder det fram en vinsyrlighet som tillsammans med de rostade kaffetonerna tyvätrr får mig att tänka på gammalt surt kaffe som stått alldeles för länge.
