Jet black with a rich brown head. Coffee, dark malts and a hoppy bitterness. There is a ton of huge flavors that should conflict, but they have managed something that lets them all shine.

(Bottle). Sweet but also crisp taste of figs, alcohol, roasted malt, granulated sugar, tropical fruits and hops. Large and strong taste of coffee with smooth but prominent element of roasted malt and hops. The flavor ends with a nice hoppy bitterness, taste of chocolate and warming alcohol. Well balanced flavors and a very nice beer.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours opaque, deep, dark brown. Aroma of roasted malt, mild coffee, dark chocolate, and a bit of citrus - pleasant but not terribly unique. Flavor is more interesting, containing the aforementioned elements but with a deeper chocolate, piney hop bite, lingering bitterness, coffee on the finish, and I do believe a bit of saltiness. Bitter end with a slight burn. Nice!

kolsvart med stort ljusbrunt skum. Doftar rostad malt och massor med kaffe! Kaffet dominerar smaken men även malt, humle och lite choklad. Ganska tunn för att vara 9.9% men riktigt bra!

Dark brown color with some red underones - lovely, sticky and beige head. Sweet aroma with hints of both coffee, ripe and dried fruit, licorice, citrus and flowers. Creamy texture, low carbonization. Aroma is dominated by black coffee and floral and citrusy hops.Hints of both licorice, caramel, roasted malt and dried fruits though. Nice beer indeed
