tfredvik (1124) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAR 8, 2014
Black body with a rather small, medium brown head that ends up as a fully lasting thin layer, ok lacing. The aroma is strong, sweet and heavily roasted. Strong coffee and dark chocolate in front, dark caramel and leather further behind. The flavours follow the aroma, with the addition of chilli. Initially I thought the chilli burn was gentle, but as often is the case with spicy dishes, the burning sensations keeps growing, and after a few sips I found it almost a bit too hot. I don’t know if I grew accustomed to the chilli or if the well integrated alcohol managed to partially knock out my tastebuds, in either case, when the bottle is half empty I find the chilli level to be perfect. It’s still a slow sipper, though. The taste is moderate to light sweet with a long-lasting moderate plus bitter finish. The body is full, the texture is creamy, smooth and oily and the carbonation is soft. Lovely.
[37.5 cl bottle, enjoyed 9 years before BB date, from Vinmonopolet Vika, Oslo]
