0,66l bottle at home from trade with amazngwrldfood, big thanks. Bottled 03/08/2016. black color, medium big coffee-colored head. smells of exotic fruits, mango, passion fruit, some pines, licorice, light candy, earthy, musty. very lovely fruit notes / great smell. full body, soft carbonation, slick mouthfeel. tastes of caramel, some mango, passion fruit, spices, candy, licorice, breadish, some coffee, earthy. finishes rather balanced with some caramel, mango and some licorice. great stuff, was a bit underwhelmed at first, but gets a lot better the more you drink. missing some more hoppy notes / a bit on the candiish side, but overall very lovely balance. very nice beer. olsvammel (7225) - Örebro, SWEDEN - OCT 7, 2016
Sample at SBWF 2016. Malty smell with sponge cake, rye, dark malts and hops. Similar taste. Nice smell but doesn’t deliver in the taste. RuNpali (85) - FINLAND - OCT 6, 2016
Tuoksussa paljon humalia mutta myös maltaiden makeutta. Ulkonäkö on upea, houkutteleva pitkään kestävällä beigellä vaahdolla. Maku on black ipalle tyypillinen. Suutumtuma on täyteläinen ja melko hyvin balanssissa. Huippuolut. ozzy70 (1148) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - SEP 12, 2016

Excellen Bree, bought a 22 at the recommendation of an acquaintance and it's tasty. No amenities so straight from the bottle, nice sharp bitter flavor, rich but not too creamy, medium palate.

Black color with a fine beige head. Nice lacing. Nice aroma with a fine intensity. Medium to full body with a smooth nice carbonation. Easy to drink. Solid balance between sweetness and bitterness. Chocolate, grapefruit hoppy, rye, bready, some roast, coffee, pine and fruity. Ok balanced complexity. One more please!Speko (414) - DENMARK - AUG 11, 2016

Poursbasically black with a big tan head & good lacing on the glass.
The aroma is like a real stylized Christmas morning, what with the orange zest, the pine, the little bit of chocolate... Santas toots, whatever.
The flavor is pretty dry, very fruity, stupidly delicious... it’s mostly citrusy & it’s got a medium level of bitterness. Some light resiny/piney stuff is cool... The roastiness is so mild that I wouldn’t notice it blindfolded. The alcohol flavor is so low that this almost drinks like a low ßooster.
Pours black with creamy tan milky head. No noticeable aroma, yet great hoppy beer with very smooth, notable and memorable finish.
