50ml bottle from Vinmonopolet Vika. Pours a dark, almost black colour, but with a slightly reddish hue. Pours imediately a huge head but settles fast as a small off-white head. Aroma is roasted malt, coffe, toffe, licorice. Taste is chocolate, nuts, roasty, slightly vanilla, licorice, raisin, butterscotch. Really nice velvety mouthfeel and it’s easy to drink. I’ve bought several bottles of this one.

4.1
M_Sack (735) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - AUG 3, 2014
Bottle. Dark dark brown to black with very thin tan head and heavy lacing. Toasted malts, dried fruits and an ever so small whiff of smoke. Chocolate flavours open the palate along with some dried Christmas fruits, followed by strong, dry roasted malts and a hint of wood smoke. Slightly over carbonated but this settles down as the beer opens up. Really like this beer.
