Lots of dark chocolate and coffee. Tasted the one brewed at Mikkeller San Diego. Very smooth and rich in taste. olsvammel (7289) - Örebro, SWEDEN - JAN 10, 2017
Bottle from Systembolaget... I think. Dark malty smell with coffee, also a bit boozy. Similar taste, very roasted. A bit rough mouthfeel and flavour profile. Raw.

Bottle. Pitch black color with beige head that lasts for long, pours like petrol.Aromas of roast, dark chocolate and coffee.Sweet and heavy taste, some alcohol notes but not the whole abv is visible for sure. Dark chocolate all the way, with some hop bitterness in the aftertaste. Very complex and highly enjoyable indeed. StevieT (2039) - AUSTRALIA - DEC 4, 2016
On tap at Mikkeller San Fransisco. So damn tasty, lots of coffee and dark chocolate going on, super smooth, dangerously drinkable for 12%. Cimbasso (1007) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 21, 2016
Winter has finally arrived, so I decided to crack open this bottle! Thanks to Holmen1 for the gift! Pours like engine oil, really thick and viscous. Very dark and virtually no carbonation. Taste is rich and gloriously complex. Coffee, dark chocolate, vanilla, spices. leather and dried vine fruits are all in the mix. Great flavours. This is a really wonderful winter beer. The high alcohol content is well concealed by an appealing sweetness and excellent balance. A really good ale which is very easy to drink. dmctaster (97) - Florida, USA - NOV 14, 2016
UPDATED: NOV 14, 2016 Black with a dark brown head. Aroma of dark fruits and sweet. Taste is bittersweet dark fruits and slight chocolate. More of a Russian imperial with the flavors. AnG_BrgNor (810) - Bergen, NORWAY - NOV 5, 2016
