Svesse (8803) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - MAY 26, 2014
(Bottle) Black colour with lasting, creamy, beige head. Malty, roasted nose with notes of dark chocolate, black coffee, oak wood, black rye bread and a touch of cognac. Malty, roasted taste with dark chocolate, cacao, coffee, vanilla, dark bread, tobacco, oak wood, a touch of cognac and a balanced cacao bitterness in the finish. The chilli stays in the background at the first sip, but grows over time, and gets quite hot after a while. Slightly more than medium body, mainly dry but with some sweetness coming through. Quite complex and interesting. Still very well balanced. Very nice beer. Hansen (8615) - Assentoft, DENMARK - NOV 27, 2011

Nice brown creamy longlasting head. Aroma is slightly rich and sweet, dark malts, salty licorice, dark sugar, coffee, chocolate, chili, hints of oak and alcohol. Taste is kind of watery, minerals, harsh vanilla, dark malts, grass, chili, burnt coffee, cocoa. Little bitterness, very thin watery mouthfeel. So disappointing!
