OminouSC2 (593) - Mora, SWEDEN - JUL 4, 2016
Sweet notes of caramel from the first hit to the nose. Then you find a lot of berries, almost fruity in its tartness. Taste is sweet with layers of slightly tart berries that really binds it together. The alcohol is a bit too present. Really nice.

weordie (1087) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - APR 5, 2016
Pours pure black with no head. The aroma is like a dark, stewed cherry and licorice. The taste is sweet cherry, smokey peat and a little earthy. Theres zero carbonation in this, Im not sure if its how it was meant to be or if its because the bottle is a few years old as Ive heard these bottles can lose their carbonation.

mecafilo (217) - Perugia, ITALY - DEC 19, 2015
Bottle @ home. Pours with a very dark reddish brown colour, almost no head. Aroma is very fruity at first (woodberries), then it gets very chocolatey (notes of vanilla and licorice, too); after tasting, quite evident notes of scotch; inviting. Taste is medium to heavy sweet, slightly bitter, quite sour (strange!). Light to medium body, viscous oily texture, completely flat.
