4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottled. A pitch black beer with a huge dark brown head. The aroma has strong notes of coffee combined with notes of roasted malt, and a bit of alcohol. The flavor is very sweet with strong notes of coffee, roasted malt, and vanilla, combined with medium notes of alcohol, burnt wood, and whiskey, leading to a dry, roasted, and alcoholic finish. I like - it’s crazy, but wow.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Havnens, Vejle
The color is absolutely black; it has a brown creamy head, solid. The aroma is mild and not extremely complex, with some roasted malts and an interesting pepper edge; some yeast too. Very good body strength, with a round and smooth mouthfeel; strong flavor of heavily roasted malts, that covers but at the same time is complemented by a good level of residual sugars; there is though a too strong liquorice component; traces of pepper also in the flavor; the alcohol is nice and warming; correct bitterness level, without roastiness excess, in a long final that also provides a very good roasted malt backbone; but it’s also a bit dusty.
Very good, and quite balanced.
