Bottled at Babajan, Stockholm. Completely black with rich off white head. Aroma of pear and sweaty grapefruit with notes of licorice. Mid sweet with near full body and well rounded mouthfeel. Licorice and minty grapefruit, some dark chocolate. Really bitter finish. Impressive with its flavour intensity and relaxed malt profile.
