Bottle. Browwn wuth small head. Aroma and taste is roasted, coffe, licorice and fruits. Tart and bitter taste and dry ending. ironcontra (336) - POLAND - JUL 22, 2017
Tar black with no ha. Surprisingly light bod for this style. Vanilla, chocolate, shortbread, wood, some sort of nondescript herbs. A lot of the additive aromatics are totally over the top so I see why the brewery seems to be polarizing on this site. erikaraeb (256) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUL 19, 2017
Some smoke, licorice, toast, and nuts. Medium body - lighter in consistency than most dark ales. Smells of coffee. I enjoy it. vbaudry (153) - - APR 26, 2017

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. Palme (4811) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUL 8, 2016
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 Holmen2 (3750) - NORWAY - JUN 27, 2016
