From bottle. Pours ruby brown with not as much head as I was expecting. Smells earthy, fig, peppery, spice with some alcohol burn even on the nose. No hop aroma noticeable. Amazingly Smooth mouthfeel with a very pleasant coating of the palette and only a slight alcohol burn going down. Have to reiterate the smoothness here. Only traces of bitterness, dark soda bread, leather, and then a earthy umami finish. This is not as mindblowing tasty as I thought it would be but I will say that is the most complex without being so aggressive beer I have tried to date. Thanks to Greg & Mara S. for sharing!!! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bitter and toast taste good texture in the mouth. Good but i don’t like the sediments too much. Nice beer!

Bottle thanks to Rick. Pours a cloudy brown with small beige head that diminishes to nothing. The aroma is strong yeast, toasted malt, raisin. Medium mouth with dark fruit, toasted malt, nice booze, candy sugar, very good.

Very good beer. It combines perfectly with chocolate to create a paradise in your mouth. Despite its price, very recommended

Bottle at a private tasting in Belgrade/Serbia. The bottle is over 2 years old, properly stored. It pours unfiltered dark brown, sediments, tan head. Nose: sweet prunes, round complexity, incredible mixture of sweet and dry fruit. UNIQUE! Mouth: balanced complexity of molasses, soft, easy to drink but extremely complex.

(Bottle from sister-in-law’s wedding) Dark chestnut body with a huge, fluffy beige head; minimal lace. Aroma is complex fruit, dark; alcohol, spices, oak, vanilla. Full, creamy body; very smooth, velvety mouthfeel; feels perfect. Flavor of fruity yeast, wood, vanilla; sweet, mild spices, and warming alcohol.

Strong yeast aroma. Dadels and raisins is present, also dark syrup. Really complex taste with lots of dried fruit, syrup, liquorice and dark malts. Long aftertaste, pleasent carbonation.

IPAgutten79 (531) - Skui, NORWAY - SEP 19, 2014
UPDATED: SEP 21, 2014 Helt mørk brun med herlig skum. Aroma av gjær, malt, krydder, karamell og mørk frukt. Rosiner? Smaken er fløyelsmyk, men bombarderer deg allikevel med inntrykk. Mørk frukt, gjær og karamell. Alkoholen varmer behagelig i halsen. Medium/tykk konsistens. Perfekt balansert, og spesielt aromaen på denne er himmelsk! Søt, så mild bitterhet.
