Black coloured with a thin head. Delicious aroma with coffee and chocolate. The aroma is not seeking its way to the nose the way I would expect from the look of the beer, I have to put my nose to the glass. The taste is sweet chocolate with a hint of coffe.Almost flat with no carbonation and a very smooth and soft texture. Interesting but for me it is just to sweet. I would have wanted it somewhat thicker to carry the sweetness better.

Bottle from Archive Beer a Boutique September 2013. Very sweet from the first mouthful to the last, maybe even a bit too sweet. Could possibly be a bit more bitter for me.

mgajdaczewa (572) - Katowice, POLAND - OCT 15, 2014
W aromacie mnóstwo słodkiej kawy, czekolady, nieco jednowymiarowo, ale raczej apetycznie. W smaku słodycz udało się lepiej zbalansować, choć wyraźnie przeważa, bardzo dużo czekolady, karmelu, goryczka i kawowość zaledwie zarysowana. Idealne dla miłośników słodkich piw, choć jest na granicy przesłodzenia i niepijalności. w tej formie jest (jeszcze) ok.

_angst_ (2950) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - OCT 12, 2014
Bottle bought @ systembolaget. Pours dark brown with a very small bubbly brownish beige head that quickly dissipates without leaving any trace on the glass. Smell is sweet and malty with roasted malts, burnt cookies, moist soil, bitter chocolate, hay, dark roast coffee with milk and hints of butterscotch. Taste is sweet, slightly bitter and malty with roasted malts, burnt cookies, milk chocolate, moist soil, hay and dark roast coffee. Mouthfeel is soft, slightly flat, round and light bodied. Finish is slightly sweet, slightly bitter and malty with roasted malts, burnt cookies, dark roast coffee, milk chocolate and soil. Quaffable stuff but slightly too flat to really get that nice creamy feel to it.

Flaska från SB. Brunsvart i färgen med en antydan av skumlock. Sädig doft med toner av bränt kaffe. Anar en viss ton av choklad också. Len munkänsla men på tok för söt, för min smak.

Trevlig. Välbalanserad, rund och mjuk choklad och mjölk. Passade väldigt bra till höststeken med brunsås (med aning av svartvinbärssaft) och trevliga Höstprimörer.

Mörkbrun nästan svart färg, mörk beige skum. Krämig doft av mörkrostad malt, söt mjölk, kaffe och choklad. Smaken matchar doften väl men tycker den är aningen för "mjuk" dvs lite blaskig kanske. Men jag gillade den överlag. Flaska från Systembolaget. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Dark brown black with a thin greyish beige head. Aroma of milk chocolate, some coffee. Flavour similar, slight cinnamon, milky and mild bitter finish.

Bottle. It pours a reddish dark brown, almost black body and a small, beige head. The aroma has lots of dried fruits, raisins and prunes mostly, with dark sugar, a roasted touch and some coffee. Pretty simple and straight forward, but not unpleasant in any way. It’s soft and smooth on the palate, semi-sweet and medium bodied, with flavors or roasted malts and coffee in the far back, dark dried fruits and sugar in front. Milk sugar. Some bitterness chiming in towards the finish. A quite nice beer, but too sweet and soft for my likings. 140930
