Pours black oily colour, with creamy light brown head. Aroma: roasted barley, chocolate, toffee, coffee, hint of american hops, vanillin (vanilla), gentle sheery/cognac like alcohol. Flavor is firstly sweet, with notes of dark chocolate, coffee, toffee, caramel, supported with syrupy sherry/cognac-like alcohol warmth, vanilla and gentle fruity, pine like hops profile which steps forward before finish. Body is full, texture smooth, carbonation is moderate medium. Once again: I prefer cheaper and better regular version. SNL (829) - - JUL 26, 2017

Black color with creamy, tan head. Aroma has lots of chocolate and dark fruits, some wood as well. Taste is quite complex with barrel character, dry wine notes, dark chocolate, roasted malts, some cherries, really bitter finish and aftertaste with roasted malt but also hops. Body is quite light for the style and ABV, also quite dry. Overall it’s quite good and complex but it lacks some mouthfeel.

330ml bottle, thanks Sergiy. Still roasted, Cognac and Sherry elude my palate. The American hops over powers. I do feel some burnt harshness is lessened by some sweetness. beerplace (2034) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 16, 2016
375ml bottle from 16th liquor store, tasted at Brian’s. Aroma is burnt malt, some woody and grassy character and some sherry notes. Taste is pretty the same character with some residual sweetness. Very good one if you like burnt malt beers. Palme (4823) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUL 7, 2016
On tap @ Copenhagen Beer Celebration 2014. No lie that this is black as a ball. As good as jet black in the glass with a nice brown head light lacing head. It has a strong nose containing of wood, cognac, dark chocolate and licorice. Quite nice, and it has lots of flavor as well. The first thing that pops in my head is chocolate box. There’s slightly mouthdrying wood and licorice here also. Ends with a lingering dark roasted aftertaste. Really solid! 03.05.2014 Klimaet (3020) - Aarhus N, DENMARK - APR 9, 2016
