Bottle. Pours black with off white head. Nose and taste of rye, roast chocolate malt, charred banana peel, wheat malt, cocoa, pine and resin. Medium body. Finishes with abrasive rye. Bone dry. gdubu493 (60) - New Jersey, USA - JUN 15, 2013
Excited when purchased @ Total Wine in Chapel Hill, NC. Huge, creamy, lacy, coffee-colored head. Great aroma. Roasted, malty front. Hints of citrus, mainly grapefruit. Consistent taste throughout. Slightly bitter end. First taste did not live up to (my self promoted) hype. Enjoyed the beer, not as much as I had hoped or as much as others. Inbreak (6711) - Loddefjord, NORWAY - JUN 14, 2013
UPDATED: FEB 23, 2014 14.06.2013, 0,75l bottle @ home:Cool_Bond (2846) - KUNG_AV_OL @ Instagram, SWEDEN - JUN 14, 2013
Nice creamy longlasting head. Aroma is slightly roasted, dark malts, hops, rubber, caramel, coffee, leafs, hay, pine needles, licorice. Taste is hops, dark malts, grass, wet leafs, burnt caramel, rubber, alcohol, pine needles. Longlasting bitterness, slightly "harsh". Fair enough, I’ve had better BIPA’s.
Very good smell of this beer. But it is not the taste. It is incredibly boring and dull. The aftertaste is also boring and a little too thin. Had it tasted the same as it had smelled it anywhere really good. Follow me @ Kung av öl / King of Beer @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.

750ml, dark pour, higher carbonation, bubbly head. Decent roast, active mouthfeel, ok bitterness. Too carbonated for me, decent flavor, not great palate IMO Staffan47 (908) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - JUN 9, 2013
Varför slösa bort en sån här öl på mig? Har mycket svårt för den här tramsiga stilen. Skänker bort det som är kvar i glaset wchesser (2160) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUN 7, 2013
Dark black brown but translucent edges. Floral slightly dank hops and burnt dark roast malt nose. Taste follows. Very nice balance even tension between the hops and roast malt bitterness. Nails the style for my money. Lupulucid (189) - - JUN 7, 2013
Sweet roast malt plays second to bitter hops. Complex malt notes but not quite integrated with hops. Pleasant sweet roast nut aroma is mild. ansalon (4219) - Stockholm, SWEDEN, SWEDEN - JUN 4, 2013
Pours blackish brown with a large, rapidly diminishing foam head. Aroma is roasted grain with fruity notes along with some honey and spices. Taste is slight coffee, lightly roasted unsalted almonds, some citrusy notes. Quite subdued but well balanced!
