3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
0.33l bottle courtesy of yngwie. Pours a black ale - suitable enough I guess - with a small and sidesticking lightly tanned head. Aroma is quite sweet with some dark caramel, dark malts, hops, and hints of chocolatepaper. Average carbonation, medium bodied and it has a heavy and oily mouthfeel. Strong flavors; burned toast, lots of licorice and burned malts. Deep dark caramel, spices and lots of nice and light bitter piny hops in the finish. Lasting dark licorice and caramel aftertaste. Quite a interesting little beer this.

Blackish brown with a creamy beige head that leaves plenty of lacing on the glass. Aroma of roasted malts, liquorice and black currant. The taste is very dry and bitter with minerals and ash in the after-taste. The liquid is kind of oily. Interesting, kind of like a volcanic imperial porter. Nice.

Bottle@Home. Very fruity (lots of berries) aroma. Black, light brown head, good lace. Very fruity, very roasted. Both are nice but competing with eachother. Alcohol hidden, dry-ish. Not bad at all but a bit out of balance.
