375ml bottle from Cornelius, who found it down the back of a metaphorical sofa after a stock-take, so thanks to James, and to fate! Pours black, very thin off-white head, nice tight bubbles. Aromas of resin, liquorice, pine, light sherry/oxidised note though, but not unpleasant. Taste is more of the same, some tar, molasses. Quite a thin body, but a nice long bitter finish.

375ml bottle with a black cork, no.6122/8972, bought at Vinmonopolet Vika more than three years ago. Oily pour revealing a low, bubbly, off-white head. Clear rosewood coloured body. Smell of dried fruits like prunes and raisin with a touch of oak. Sweet taste of berries, dried fruit, oak and earth. Drying bittersweet ending with warming alcohol. Sherry impression. Full bodied. Slow sipper that gets a tad too sweet in the long run (shared with Finn, Tromsø 10.12.2014). Finn (8155) - Tromsø, NORWAY - DEC 16, 2014

Bottle. Pours a very dark brown, almost beer without any head on top. Aroma of alcohol, roast, chocolate and toffee. Flavor is very sweet, also some light bitterness detected in the back. The alcohol is quite overpowering and warming. Never thought aging a black IPA would work out so nice. Low carbonation, silky mouthfeel. Good stuff.

Des dattes, raisins secs, cassonade et chocolat blanc réunis dans le même liquide pour se faire piéger par des houblons terreux et herbacés à la vigueur lointaine. définitivement pas ce qu’elle était mais franchement intéressante quand même. Stuu666 (14843) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - OCT 15, 2014
Bottle at Craig’s. Pours black, light roasted nose, sweet, thin, light malty bitter taste. elbernays (1679) - Dublin, IRELAND - JUL 19, 2014
UPDATED: JUL 23, 2014 375ml Bottle at home from drinkstore. Pours oily black with no head. Nose is liquorice, alcohol, coffee vanilla, grass. Flavour is toasted malts, earth, liquorice, milk. Smooth with no carbonation and a warm finish. It?s got a light feel for the abv which is odd. The abv is managed well. Definitely a sipping beer. VictorStr (1740) - Helsingborg, SWEDEN - JUN 6, 2014
Mycket söts inslag i aromen, torkad frukt. Rätt lugn och balanserad i kropp och smak.
