Dyp mørk brun. Aroma av malt, kramell, kaffe og olje. Smaker anis, nellik, karamell, heftig shit. Dette ølet utfordrer smaksløkene. Lager en story med smaker. Fantastisk opplevelse AlfSt (27) - - APR 2, 2016
Massive, well-balanced and slightly sweet. Lingering rich, full flavored taste, flat foam. Hints of dried fruit, spices and dark malt. Perfect to Christmas cakes and desserts. Good candidate for storing a couple of years. EHSRanders (2047) - Tjele, DENMARK - MAR 5, 2016
Bottle. Black colour with large creamy light brown mostly lasting head. Aroma is roasted malt. Sweet spicy flavor with worm alcohol finish. Creamy palate. JorisPPattyn (9929) - Ursel, BELGIUM - OCT 17, 2012
Pours viscously, and after much trouble, a dark beige rim forms itself for mere seconds; the beer displaying the colour of old, darkend accajou wood; with very fine pearling. Rich, alcohol and fusels-infused nose, like a rich brandycake. Some vanilla, rumbonen, vinous - as old fortified wine. Dried fruit - bananas, plums, apricots, raisins. Bitterish-sweet, alcoholpossessed flavour; cray, liquorice, all the dried fruits from above with some strawberries thrown in, and a very imposing character as from barrel-aged brandy or similar spirit. Sticky, syrupy, totally viscous and explosive alcoholheat. Wow - a gem. Abject thanks to Vincent and his dealer (Brent?)! nilsas (4072) - Bryne, NORWAY - AUG 17, 2013
2012 årgang. Sort av farge. Fin duft av kaffe og sjokolade. Gog fyldig smak av kaffe og sjokolade med også en fin sittende smak av krydder.

Svart farve med lite skum. Lukt av malt, frukt og sjokolade. Smak av malt, sjokolade, frukt, krydder og lakris. Thime Station. KnutAlbert (6754) - Oslo, NORWAY - NOV 21, 2012
Very dark, syrupy feel. Brandy, smoke, liquorice. Smooth and velvety feel, this is aged long enough to take away the edges. Balanced, despite its extremeness. RuneStumo (2652) - Haugesund, NORWAY - MAR 17, 2013
15.03.2013. Shared at the brewery, Egersund. Black colour with tan head. Strong beer with very rich body. Lots of dark malts and lots of alcohol. Very strong bitterness in the aftertaste. Notes of chocolate, liqurice and coffe. There is also some sweetness, that maybe comes from the high alcohol content. Really complex beer with lots of flavours. berlinoise2go (689) - NORWAY - DEC 20, 2013
2011 edition consumed Dec 2013. Clear dark reddish brown colour. Small offwhite head that disappears quite quickly. Intense, sweet aroma of malt, figs, raisins, molasses, tobacco, caramel, aged sherry. Full body, very viscous and oily mouthfeel, flat carbonation. Very sweet taste, quite spicy (including cloves) with a growing chili burn, well balanced by a pleasant acidity with hint of aged vinegar, and mild bitterness. Highly enjoyable in small amounts. Aniela (4216) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUN 5, 2013
