4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
(50 cl bottle from Bunker Beer) Pours black with rich, tan head. Aroma is initially of roasted malt which surprisingly is then followed by more hoppy, grassy and piney notes that blend in with an underlying biscuity-licoricy malty note. Medium-bodied with soft carbonation, oily texture and a lingering, bitter and dry finish. Reminds me somewhat of Mikkeller’s Beer Hop Breakfast but with a less electric hop bite. I like how the herbal, fresh hop character complements the complex, roasted character of the malt. Overall a well balanced beer, where the roasted malt never gets acidic and the alcohol is well masked.
It exploded on me and has a really unfortunate head to beer ratio but let’s continue.
4 finger mid-tan/honey yellow head.
Almost pitch black beer.
Aroma is vanilla, yeast, hazelnuts, dark roasted coffee, hint of cinnamon and unripe raspberries.
Taste is cinnamon, wood, bitter dark chocolate, coffee grounds and chili.
Somewhat watery mouthfeel, after a few secs it spreads and feels more space-taking, probably due to the spices and the slight chili heat. Alcohol well hidden. Quite drinkable considering the ABV.
Overall: Really hate spices and chili in my stouts. This one wasn’t too bad though since they did a good job only having hints of it. Still, not my cup of tea but there are certainly worse spiced stouts out there. Shinaki (17) - NORWAY - MAY 26, 2017
Brent malt, sjokolade. Brødskorpe. Svært mørkt øl, med lite skum og svak karbonering. Maltig smak, men ikke for søtt. Balanserende bitterhet, mer fra ristet malt enn fra humle. MisoW (3579) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - APR 4, 2017

Vissa tillbehör passar sig på vintern men är direkt odugliga och irriterande på sommarhalvåret. Här bör mössa, skridskor och snöslunga nämnas. Och inte minst det här raketbränslet från Mohawk. Aromen är en stout med extra allt. Tacka alkoholen och all svart malt för den bröstvärmaren. Smaken är dock inte lika spännande, med en del kraftiga jordtoner och en hel del bäska. Totalt sett något att förflytta snödrivor med. Nicke80 (750) - Södertälje, SWEDEN - FEB 4, 2017
