Flavor has intensive notes of dark chocolate and cacao, toffee, sweets, roastiness, malts, some cacao bitterness. Give me more of this stuff... yngwie (17367) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - DEC 13, 2014
Bottle. A very dark brown beer topped by a dense, light beige head leaving lacings. The aroma has some vanilla hints, with dark chocolate, coffee hints, some molasses and licorice as well as a roasted touch. Rather dry on the palate, with a fine carbonation level. Salty licorice, molasses, roasted malts and dark chocolate in the flavor, a fine bitterness chiming in. Lasting roasted finish with salty licorice. A bit drier than I’d prefer, but still a fine beer. 141213 Geokkjer (7673) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - DEC 13, 2014

Pours black with a tan head. Aroma has notes of roasted malt, chocolate, citrus, pine, herbal and alcohol. Taste is medium sweet and medium bitter with a long slightly warm, roasted, coffee, chocolate, caramel and bitter finish. Body is full, texture is oily, carbonation is soft.
Fairly hoppy aroma for the style. Flower with some citrus but also dark malt. Medium bitterness. Nice color.
tfredvik (2095) - Oslo, NORWAY - DEC 7, 2014
Cloudy black body with a bit small, tan and fairly long-lived head that sticks somewhat to the glass. Strong aroma that is surprisingly little malty but with a rather strong hop influence of pine and herbs. Lightly roasted malts in the back and traces of smoke. The strong flavour is much more malty, with coffee and other roasted elements. There is also faint notes of dry cocoa and chocolate in the late finish. The hops are evident in the flavour as well: pine in front with grapefruit and herbs in the back. The alcohol is noticeable, but not unpleasant. Magnificent mouthfeel: it’s a full-bodied beer with a creamy and smooth texture, soft carbonation and a very dry end. A nice hoppy porter not that far away from a BIPA.

Flaska från systemet - Kolsvart med vitt skum. Väldigt spritig doft. Lite tunn i kroppen. Lite brända toner i smaken annars är det mest alkoholsmak. rollerton (196) - SWEDEN - NOV 29, 2014
