2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pour is jet black with very little dark mahogany head. Nose has light pest and barrel up front with a heavy sugary and sweet malt presence. Taste is overly sweet malt, under attenuated and messy for the most part. It has a dry finish with a fair bit of peat, ash, light barrel, and some bitterness. The sweetness and ash linger together. It lacks focus and integration. It’s big, thick, well carbonated but messy.

330ml bottle brought back home from Ølbutikken in Copenhagen. Thick oily pour. Dissipating brownish head to a devil-black body. Sparse lacing. Peat malty aroma joined by ash and dark anise. The peaty flavour is well integrated with earthy malts, anise and dark fruits. Vinous palate. Lingering malt bitter finish supported by alcohol warmth. Full bodied. Very nice, slow sipper. (Tromsø, 26.03.2013).

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Pours thick oil dark black oil in color with a mocha head that has a cinnamon crimson hue. Aroma brings huge smokey peat notes so smooth and delicious in the nose. The flavor and body are equally as wonderful with huge roasted malts, coffee, and cacao to start off and then the smooth and sweet smokey notes come in, followed by a drop to dryness that I never expected.
