@ Stordirren 15-7-29: lite mjölkiga rostade toner. Tydlig torr kaffe och bitter choklad. Fin eftersmak. TBone (18013) - Pori, FINLAND - JUL 25, 2015
Bottle at PBFX. Opaque black, small brownish head. Aroma has roasted maltyness, cocoa and some sweetness in the nose. Medium-bodied. Roasted malty, slightly sticky but easy. Nicely balanced although not exceptional. Hermod (8216) - Vantaa, FINLAND - JUL 25, 2015
650ml bottle @PBF X. Pours black with a thin espresso head. Licorice, strong roastedness, coffee and burnt notes. Flavor has cocoa, roastedness, tobacco notes, licorice, sweetness. Semisweet finish. Ok sipper but lacks something to make it stand out.

Bottle @ BBN. Thanks to Fergus for sharing! Deep oily brown pour with a small tan head. Nose is pretty rustic. Plenty of cocoa and ash. Licorice and and dark charred coffee beans. Umami flavor. Some salted licorice and more espresso. Oily chocolate syrup and ash. Full and rich. Supple. Decent effort.

Bottleshare thanks to MrFrog. Opaque dark brown beer, good yellowish tan head. Palate is airy and semi dry, mild fine carbonation. Airy creamy dark malts, mildly sweet. Touches of roast and coffee. Dry spice precedes a dry finish. Not bad.
