AgentAle (1614) - Alberta, CANADA - DEC 18, 2016
Aroma is deeply roasted malts, caramel and toffee. Taste is dark chocolate, caramel, black licorice and tart. The 15 abv is definitely present and noticeable bit not overwhelming. Slightly disappointed actually.

Nose is sweet malt, rich chocolate, mellow barrel, molasses, raisens, toasted coconut.

Hasnt held up too badly at all ... a touch sweet and cloying but a decent enough sipper.

olsvammel (6606) - rebro, SWEDEN - JAN 8, 2016
Bottle from Systembolaget (aged since release). At first the smell was awfull, smelled like a dead animal farted. But then it got better with lots of chocolate and caramel. Very sweet taste, malty with chocolate, caramel and fudge. Both the smell and taste improved allot when it got some air. Sweet liquid candy.

Black body, without any head.
Aroma of melting dark chocolate, caramel, coffee, some liquorice, dark fruits, booze.
Tastes of chocolate, coffee, some coconut, some liquorice, dark fruits, some yeast, booze.
Medium, oily mouthfeel, with a soft carbonation.
Finishes alcohol warming, with chocolate, cocoa, coffee.

Tasty. A comfortable, full sipper. Boozy, but also quite smooth, with a lot of tasty dark malts and some interesting other notes from the background.
