Bottle looks interesting. Beer in the glass deep black, nice head. Dry-hoppy aroma. Starts the same, dry and hoppy. Modest bitter. Some fruity hints. Finish more and more stout-like, less dry, intense malty. Quite drinkable. Nice!

No I have not. Bottle from the Kioskh of all Kioskhs. Big foamy light choco colored head. Body is dark brown with limited clarity. Grassy and light fruity hop nose, offset by some dryish powdery cocoa malt notes. Niclely roasted dark malt flavor profile. Tarry notes and hint of bitter coffee. A bold bitterness underneath. Fruity, resiny with some fine floral tones. Almost full. Nice juicy texture. Finishes just as roasty and fruity-bitter as I hoped. Now I’ve been Køssed!
