Bottle from Systembolaget. Pitch black body with a big, lacing, beige head. Looks just amazing. Aroma has dark, roasted malt with hint of expresso coffee. Flavor is quite sweet, dark roasted malt, dark chocolate, coconut and quite bitter. Full bodied with a sweet and bitter aftertaste. Pretty solid, but feels a bit raw and too sweet for my likings. fiery_1 (1026) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 21, 2017
330ml bottle @ the office. Pours an opaque brown colour with a tiny tan head. Nose is chocolaty, molasses, and fudge. Flavour is unsweetened bitter roasted chocolate. I was hoping for some coconut influence. Ferris (15288) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 21, 2017
Bottle - Coconut, some herbal notes and dark sweet malts, deep jet brown with a small beige head. Dark sweet molasses and roast. Oakes (17680) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 21, 2017
Medium brown. No head. Fudgey aroma, with some chocolate. On the palate, a rich chocolate cake, with again that same sort of fudgey note. Full body. beerplace (1701) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 21, 2017
330ml bottle shared at Brian’s office. Pours a very dark brown with a beige head. Aroma is roasted malt, grainy, some chocolate notes. Taste is similar. Not very pleasant.

Many thanks to Nisse666 for this bottle. Great intense heavy beginning. Grain, sticky sweetish bitterness. Roast, coffee, sweetish espresso. Very thick but more on the sweetish side. The aftertaste is bitter-sweet, roasted grainy but too sweet for more complexity. Nice though. BRW (2781) - Barcelona, SPAIN - JUL 17, 2017

0,33l from bottle bought from Biercab Shop, Barcelona. BB 27.10.2018. black color, almost no head. smells earthy, olives, marzipan, nutty, bit oxidized, bit sweet. nice smell. Full body, light carbonation, slick mouthfeel. tastes of caramel, earthy, raisins, nutty, marzipan, brown sugar, ripe fruits. finishes lightly sweet with notes of brown sugar, earthy notes and raisins. not bad, but rather on the sweet side, could use a bit more complexity.
