Bottle shared by pentaz. Black with a medium sized dark brown head that sticks to the glass. Burnt malt, chocolate, light fudge, cocoa. Leads to meaty smoke lasting long into the finish with some roasted notes. Full body, fat creamy texture, soft carbonation, near heavy sweet and not much bitterness, ends quite soft.

(Draught – in Copenhagen, Denmark, 2012). Wonderful fragrance and soft and amazingly balanced palate with rich aromas of roasted malt, raisins, vanilla, chocolate and barrel. Incredibly tasty beer and dangerously easy to drink with respect to the ABV 10.3%.

UPDATED: SEP 17, 2013 Bottle. A black one, looking lovely with its finger-thick tan head. The aroma has blackberries, roasted malts, booze, leather, dark sugar and bacon, equally nice. The flavor pretty much the same, with a nice sweetness level. Warming and full-bodied on the palate, finishing with a lasting roasted flavor. A really pleasant one. Rating: 8-5-8-4-16-4.1. 121116
Bottle, from trade with Papsoe. A black one, topped by a small, dense, dark tan head. The aroma has a nice smoked ham scent, followed by chocolate, roasted malts and some coffee. Some herbal notes? It’s super-full-bodied, very soft and velvety, with some warmth. Roasted malts, coffee, chocolate and beef stock in the flavor. Lasting finish with lots of flavors. A really wonderful beer, but I’d like it to move a bit over from the malty side. 130510
