Bottle 33 cl. Pours black with small fast vanishing brown tan head. At first taste is very smooth and rounded with some harsh in it and a nice alcohol warmth. Notes of roasted malts, salty licorice, coffee, dark chocolate. Slightly too harsh at end. Needs something to balance the harsh aftertaste with. After getting used to it the harsh aftertaste mellows down a bit revealing more tasting sides of this one.
