Swing top bottle. Very dark brown with a large head on opening which was slow to dissipate. Quite creamy with an unusual fruity flavour. My second from this brewery an well worth trying.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
0.33l swingtop bottle. A really deep and dark brown - near black one in the glass with a good looking really huge almost creamy-fluffy dark ashy brown colored head. The nose is not directly what I would call extreme, but it’s still present with a little chocolate, a sour thing in the background and dark malts. It really doesn’t smell like it looks. It has a really nice oily mouthfeel with a comfortable above average carbonation level. That sourness in the aroma is also present in the taste. It’s woody-chocolate and a little bit sweet also. The slightly sourness actually works very well here. Making it a bit more interesting. Sour licorice? Is that a thing? Slightly peppery in the aftertaste. Interesting. 05.10.2013

3.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Dark copper, tan head, avg lace.
Full body, intense flavor on attack but subsiding in the middle, lean and very hot mouthfeel, lingering and tasty palate.
Very bitter but not dry, except in the finish.
Intense roast flavors, coffee, dried cherries, raisins.
Very nice stout.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
33 cl, bottle conditioned fliptop, Almost exploding at the opening, ruined almost everyting at my desk area. It was really waiting to get out of the bottle. Very dark beer, thin tan coloured head. Low aroma level, but the coffee, chocolate and roasted notes are there. Palate is really challenged here, lots of flavours and carbonation going on. Flavour is malty, lots of coffee and dark fruits. For me, this is a somehow weird mix of the stout and abbey styles, it’s none of them and both at the same time. Will I buy it again? I don’t think so....
