Shared bottle with Abemorsten at Cardinal. Pours deep black with no head at all. Aroma of dark malts, moderate roasty with some light smoked notes, coffee and liquorice. Taste is smooth, moderate sweet malts mixed with almonds and alcohol, light bitter towards the end, lingering liquorice with herbs and alcohol burn at the final.

500 ml bottle, Cardinal Pub & Bar, Stavanger. ABV is 6.5%. Black colour, large to moderate tan head. Roasty and malty aroma with notes of chocolate, coffee and dark rye bread, hints of leather. The flavour is roasty but still smooth, medium sweet, notes of strong coffee, liquorice and dark bitter chocolate, hints of smoke and ashes in the finish. Bitter hops in the aftertaste. Good stuff.
