Bottle, 22oz, shared by bergstaden. Close to black in the glass, very very dark brown, clear-looking, and with a dense dark beige head. The aroma is quite heavy, yet mellow, with roasted malts, coffee, dark chocolate, some prunes and bourbon, vanilla and a spiced hint. It’s full-bodied and warming, smooth and sweet, with a good bitterness to deal with the sugars. Roasted malts. coffee, chocolate, bourbon, wood and vanilla, some faint cardamom hints and an earthy hint. Lasting finish. A really delicious beer indeed, smooth, mellow and tasteful. 170311 Meilby (11495) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAR 11, 2017
