4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Aroma is thick of malts, chocolate, coffee and licorice. The taste is heavy from the same ingredients as in the aroma, but it also carries a surprising freshness from some kind of red berry. Awesome stuff this one, and something you always should have in your cellar when it’s time for something to get your shit straight!

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
2014 release. Bomber into pint glass. Opaque, bordering on black. Chocolate, popcorn(?! maybe that’s the anise, but toasted?), dark roast coffee, a bit of dark topsoil. Thick and heavy in the mouth, rich malt, coffee and cocoa. Oily lingering finish, just enough bitterness to celanse the pallete and leave a lingering dark chocolate sense. A fantastic stout.
