(25cl bottle) Courtesy of Blomster in a trade. Pours a thin, quick dissipating brown frothy head atop a black body. Nose of soya sauce and molasses, somewhat burnt. Nice roasty nuts and burnt pot-bottom flavour base, thick and mildly carbonated on the palate. Very robust - actually hard to believ this is only 9.5% abv, I would have expected closer to 10.5-11%. Very drinkable but when drinking alone its nice to have an easily consumable 250ml bottle. Thanks Christer!
Super mellow, great mouthfeel, roasted malt, plenty of coffee, some caramel. Very, very good...! ruigo (3088) - PORTUGAL - JUL 24, 2017

Dense brown colour with a light tan head. Aromas of roasted malts, light roast coffee, chocolate and a little bit of liquorice with a hunch of dried fruits with lightly roasted nuts develops. fine carbonation, oily, slick with a pronounced body yet somewhat slender at this abv. Lasting roasty finish. fiery1 (1561) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 2, 2017
500ml bottle @ home. Pours a dark brown colour with a nice foamy tan head. Nose is roasted malts and black coffee. Flavour is dark roast coffee, chocolate, hints of vanilla, and roasted malts. Medium bodied and is quite dry. Towards the bottom of my glass I came upon a discovery of gooey gel like floaties that disturbingly were well hidden until one found its way into my mouth. Pouring the remaining contents of the bottle I discovered many more of these floaties made up what was left of the contents. It was rather off-putting despite the beer being good though not at sweet as I tend to like. glennmastrange (2901) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - APR 14, 2017
Bottle. Moderate to heavy toasted, dark chocolate and dark bread for the malt, light herbs for the hops, light dough for the yeast, with notes of toffee, vanilla and dark rum. Head is small, bubbly, light tan, with spotty and slippery lacing and good legs, and is mostly diminishing. Color is very dark brown. Flavor starts lightly to moderately sweet and lightly acidic, then finishes moderately sweet, lightly acidic and faintly bitter. Palate is medium to full, syrupy with a soft carbonation and a lightly alcoholic and sticky finish.
