3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A black beer with a very big and beautiful coloured, brown head. At first, a nose is strongly honey, sweet, roastiness, liquirice and some fruits. After the first mouthfull, the honey is not so dominating anymore, and the aroma is more balanced. The taste is powerfull and strongly roasted, lots of salt liquirice, honey. Also tar and smoke with herbal hops in the end. Full bodied that is lighten with a strong, but smooth carbonation. The unique IS with a lots of honey.

Bottle from mane liquor. Pours a very thick pitch black whit lovely dark tan head. Looks insane. Nose is smoky oak, sweetness from the heather honey, a little bit of coffee and dark chocolate. Mouthfeel is incredibly full, such a rich beer. Taste is upfront with espresso like coffee, powdered chocolate, heather honey and maybe some dark fruit. What a great beer.
