Bottle. Aroma of sweetish dark fruit backed by some chocolate. Dark mahogany color with an off-white head that quickly collapsed. Thin to medium body with moderate carbonation. The flavor is dark toasted malt with a medicinal tinge. Coarse chocolate notes and enough bitter to be noticeable. The finish is relatively dry, maybe a bit earthy, and the chocolate and bitter persist. It’s really very drinkable. Brilliant, even. gunnfryd (14899) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - OCT 27, 2008
