33 cl bottle thanks to ekstedt! He got it from Cracked Kettle. BB 01/02/2016. Sampeld on April 16, 2011
Dark reddish brown to black color, smallish brown head. Sweet, licorice, lactic, alcohol, almond paste scent. Light acidic, spicy, alcohol, lactic taste. Salty aftertaste. Noticable alcohol. Smooth mouthfeel, medium bitterness.
God stuff for sipping, but it would take some time to finish a bottle on my own.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Medium, very dense & fine, irregular and stable beige head over deep-brown beer. Alcohol, fusels, liquorice, whisky, spiced fruit - as clove-studded oranges - and a touch of lactic acid. Stout, burnt flavours, very light acidity and roasted barley. Less alcohol to taste than the nose suggested, but the warming backthroat feel tells enough. Mint, basil, sour cream in the finish. Very well-bodied & smooth. Generally speaking classical, but I’m in two minds about the mintflavour at the end.
