4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Oj, vad det här är bra. Ölen är svartare än min själ med en komplex smak av syra, choklad, torkad frukt och vanilj. Dessutom var ölen välbalanserad och kändes underbar i gommen.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap at Fermentoren, Copenhagen. Poured a dark mahogany with a thin bubbly tan head. The aroma is peat and malt. The flavour is big bitter, coffee, dark chocolate and alcohol liqourice. A very nice beer, but I’d prefer a lower ABV with less bitterness. More is not always best.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, 375cl. A black one, topped by a small, dark tan head leaving some lacings. Coffee, roasted malts, some dark chocolate, and a little hoppy touch in the aroma. The flavor has loads of coffee, as well as roasted malts, dark chocolate and a faint touch of vegetables. Full body, soft carbonation. Lasting roasted finish. A nice beer, that’s for sure, but maybe a bit one-dimensional. 130516

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Black pour. Slim tan head. Little bit of lacing. Huge coffee and chocolate aroma. Creamy, smooth, coffee and chocolate taste. Some figs, malt, vanilla, and a bit of alcohol. Some heat from the alcohol, but mellowed out by the smooth finish. Just a touch of bitterness in the back from, maybe, coffee. Nice warmer.
