Bottle shared with the husband. Very dark brown in color, the head fades away fairly quickly. Very boozy aroma, milk and dark chocolate, espresso beans. Taste: Wow. Sweet, sweet sticky malts that manage not to be cloying, tart cherries, and then a surprising punch of hops.

330ml bottle. Aroma chocolate, flavour is chocolate toasted grain and nutty. Black colour, minimal coffee coloured head which laces quite well. Viscous mouth feel, low carbonation. Excellent.

kanerjus (58) - orimattila, FINLAND - NOV 23, 2014
tuoksu on yksi parhaista ever. kymppi hyvin lähellä. suklaata, pähkinää, vähän paahdetta. pähkinän ja suklaan liitto on hieno. suutuntuma kääntyy vetiseksi. liian makea.

simont1 (281) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - NOV 19, 2014
Nose of fruit cake, toffee and chocolate. Taste is very mellowed out with some chocolate raisin quality, not very roasty compared to american counterparts, but some roast is there. Taste is vanilla, chocolate, lots of licorice. Mouthfeel is a bit thinned out.

Flaska köpt i Stoke Newington, London. Detta var en besvikelse tyvärr, smaken är inte alls behaglig. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

rayaron (301) - Kfar Saba, ISRAEL - NOV 2, 2014
Bottle sample at a tasting at Mastikim, Ra’anana. Deep brown with small brownish head. Aroma of vanilla, milk chocolate, coffee, a bit alcoholic, faint toffee notes. Lots of coffee in the flavor, roasted malt, milk chocolate, licorice, medium sweetness, sticky dry sweet-bitter finish. Light carbonation, creamy, full-bodied. Very good.

edsspoon (497) - Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - NOV 1, 2014
Bottle - totally black with a dark brown fizzy white head. Aroma of caramel, chocolate, roast malt, coffee, cocoa and hints of grass and oak. Taste of caramel, chocolate and a little licorice, followed by vanilla, grass, roasted coffee beans and earth. Light bitterness, toffee and medium sweetness in the end. Medium body, low carbonation, light dryness. Just the right amount of warming alcohl. Definitely up there amongst the best beers I’ve had.

mgajdaczewa (572) - Katowice, POLAND - OCT 30, 2014
W aromacie uderzenie likieru czekoladowego, lekkiego karmelu, bardzo intensywne i co warte odnotowania bez śladu alkoholu, co przy 10.2% jest sporym wyczynem. podobnie w smaku, czuć, że mamy do czynienia z piwem mocnym, ale nie 10-cio procentowym. Dominuje gorzka czekolada, czekolada truflowa, lekki karmel, spora goryczka, bardzo długi wyrazisty finisz z czekoladowymi, kawowymi i chmielowo - ziołowymi nutami. Gdyby piwo było ciut gęstsze byłoby idealne.

visionthing (2894) - Oslo, NORWAY - OCT 25, 2014
33cl bottle kindly shared by Arve_Christian - thanks a lot! Pours very dark brown, close to black, with a rather small, beige head. Roasty aroma with dark chocolate, dark malt, notes of coffee and spices and hints of dark fruits and licorice. Medium sweet with complex flavours and a nice bitterness.Surprisingly refreshing!
