Pours a close to black body with a copper tint. Huge, creamy and beige head that ends up as fully lasting layer. Malty and strong aroma of roasted malt, ash, and some fruitiness, with chocolate and cocoa in the back. Strong flavour of dark roasted malt, ash, cocoa, chocolate, dark dried fruits, and black currant, with coffee and liquorice in the back. Light to moderate sweet taste with a long-lating moderate bitter finish. Mid-bodied, dry texture, and a bit too lively carbonation.
[33 cl bottle, 6.5% ABV, enjoyed 15 months after bottling, from Vinmonopolet Lillemarkens, Kristiansand]
Bortimot svart med lyst brunt skum som blir liggende. Lukter av karamell, kaffe og noe røkt. Medium fylde og noe søtlig karamell i smak. Mild bitter avslutning.

Flaske 330ml spandert av Rune. Delt med ham i WC-veien 24 Apr 17. Svart. Så vidt gjennomskinnelig rødt. Høyt kremaktig lysebrunt skum som daler veldig sakte. Aroma av sjokolade & lakris. Silkemyk munnfølelse. Smaken salt lakris. Rune (13204) - Tromsø, NORWAY - APR 25, 2017
330ml bottle, 6.5 % abv, bought at Vinmonopolet Bankkvartalet in Trondheim last summer. Coal black body. Crocheted lacing from a huge, creamy tan-coloured head. Dark, mid-sweet doughy smell. Slightly roasted dark malty flavours with hints of chocolate and a coffee touch to the ending. Medium bodied. Pleasing (Shared with Finn, Tromsø 24.04.2017).

0.33l medicine bottle. A gusher! Flows out of the bottle instantly after popping the cap. Pouring it I the glass it only leaves a massive foamy over carbonated bubbly mess of a head. Waiting the 5 minutes it takes, I can see a deeper dark brownish body under a dirty looking foamy lacing head. It smells dry and roasted. Traces of both sour coffee and dark bitter chocolate. Mild nutty behind the chocolate, and not bad smelling at all. It’s as expected quite high and near aggressive on the carbonation this, mild oily in the mouth. A little papery, hints of licorice towards the finish. Nice tasting, but the high carbonation kinda ruins it a bit. 31.12.2016

Bottle. Pours a pitch black body with a huge rocky off-white head. Nose is sweet grainy notes, licorice, cereals, candy powder and hints of chocolate and mild coffee. Taste is chocolate, cocoa, coffee liqueur and hints of deep malts, grains and licorice. Medium body, medium to high carbonation. Not bad, just not too fantastic either. nilsas (4313) - Bryne, NORWAY - APR 24, 2014
Duft av karamell og noe kaffe. Dyp mørk farge, nesten sort. Dekkende brunt skum, heng langs kant. Smak av røyk, med en liten avslutning av karamell.
