355ml bottle from Systembolaget. Black with a dense and creamy khaki/brown head, rich lacing, looks great! Rich roasted barley aroma, coffee, chocolate, hazelnut and hints of licorice. Velvety and creamy smooth mouthfeel, soft carbonation and full bodied. Roasted taste with gentle sweetness from the oats and dried fruits, coffee and chocolate. Rosted cocoa bitterness in the finish. Well balanced and very drinkable! EerieDrinks (301) - Malmï¿½, SWEDEN - OCT 27, 2017

Pitch black beer.Unde (1152) - Helsinki, FINLAND - OCT 26, 2017
Aroma is coffee, raisins, light caramel, roasted malts, dates, porridge and oats.
Taste is raisins, red vinous notes, slight plum and apricot, hint of fruity hops, weak coffee and some burnt, earthy notes.
Mouthfeel is velvety smooth but with a hollow, watered down feel, even though the body itself is semi-thick. Medium bitterness. Very low carbonation. No alcohol detected.
Overall: I drank this about two weeks ago at a friends house that bought it from the same store I did and it was better overall. This particular one feels watery and bland at times, don't know how that's possible. Where's the heaviness? Feels like a single stout. I love oats and raisins in a beer, but this has an annoying "porridge with raisins" aura around it and I'm not a fan of porridge. Must be something wrong, this isn't up to Great Divide's standard.
UPDATED: OCT 26, 2017 Blackish brown colour with beige head on top leaving small lacing as it dissolves. Aroma has roasted malts, espresso coffee, dark chocolate, oatmeal, dark dried fruits, raisin and plums. Taste starts sweetish dark chocolate then dried fruits with plums and raisins, oatmeal porridge maybe and lots of dry roasted malts. Full body and medium carbonation.
