Svart i färgen med brunt skum. Stor och tung doft av rågbröd bitter choklad lite alkoholsötma. Smakar rostad malt, rågbröd, lakrits, bitter choklad. Alkoholen slår igenom lite för mycket, salt lakrits och torkade frukter på slutet. Fantastiskt gott till rökt hästkött.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a viscous, black body with a unusually large head for the style. The head is creamy, medium brown, long-lived and laces the glass excellently. Strong, malty, very dark roasted and sweet aroma of dark caramel, chocolate and coffee with ash in the back. Strong flavour of dark roasted malt, dark caramel and coffee beans with a herbal, vegetal and green sting. Full body, oily and creamy texture, soft to moderate carbonation. A superb beer, but I prefer the coffee to be a little less vegetal.
