2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottled 330ml @Grace
Bottle was a gusher. Pitch black color, decent beige head. Medium-bodied. Slightly tart, dry woody, lots of coffee beans in the flavor. Roasted aftertaste with some alcohol. Way too dry and woody.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
Heavy and too reminiscent of liquor where alcohol flavor dominates against the fancy rusty coffee tones that are there.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
(Draught at Stockholm Beer Festival, 27 Sep 2013) Opaque black colour with creamy, brown head. Roasted, malty nose with strong black coffee, liquorice, cocoa and black rye bread. Malty, roasted taste with notes of espresso, liquorice, salmiac, cocoa and a creamy finish with a generous cocoa bitterness. Full body, with a certain sweetness. Very well balanced for its strength. Very nice beer.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled (thanks omhper). Turned out to be a bigtime gusher. Pitch black colour with a mediumsized brown head. Aroma is ashes, ripe dark fruits, some slight tart wooden notes. Flavour is mild tart wood, dark fruits, nuts and some herbal notes. Wellbalanced as such, but spritzy carbonation. Also has some mild toasted and liquoricelike not-too-sweet notes in the finish.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle shared with (and courtesy of) the brewers of Bådin. Has a black colour with a small, light brown head. Nice roasted aroma with nuts, brownies and dark chocolate. More roasted malt in the flavour along with some wood. Strange in a way. Has a rich mouth feel, and a light to medium bitterness. A nice roasted ale but is a bit weird and unbalanced in my opinion.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle 33cl from Henrik thanks, a dark beer with medium brown head. Nose is unctuous on dark chocolate, coffee and roasted coffee beans notes. Aroma is again on dark caramel, dark chocolate coffee, over roasted coffee, light licorice, quite creamy, very nice body. Finish is again on the same dark malt direction with light ashes notes, well done beer.
