4.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
One of the best beers I’ve ever tasted, and the mix of bitterness from hops that mostly remind me of IPAs and the sweetness of the best dark porters make this an unforgettable experience. Nicely bitter, heavy, well balanced, coffee, cocoa and dark basements, and the alcohol is nicely hidden behind all of these great tastes and aromas.

10% from a Vinmonopolet in Oslo, possibly in the train station? Shared at my local homebrewers meeting. A great rich fruity aroma with figs, plums & chocolate greeted me. It has a medium body with a slick mouthfeel with a boozy chocolate deliciousness. Lots of warming as it goes down your throat. Excellent stuff though more of a winter beer.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Easy to drink beer for being so strong. A little alcohol in the taste, unfortunately, but not too dry. I have no grasp of what this smells or tastes. A little dark fruit and maybe soya. Long aftertaste. Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.
