Bottled and 9,7% abv. Dark black pour, bit of beige foam. Nose has some roast, lots of caramel, somewhat sourish although it's maybe not supposed to. Taste is sweet, lightly tart lots of caramel, chocolate but not roasty. Dessert beer, light booze in the finish. For some reason reminds me porters that are brewed with lager yeast. jookos (7041) - FINLAND - OCT 27, 2017

A lasting brown head. Light brown color. Roasted malty aroma. Chocolate and coffee more present in the taste. Balanced chocolate sweetness and small bitterness for such a big beer. fiulijn (21214) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 20, 2017

330ml bottle @ the office. Pours a cloudy brown with a thin beige head. Nose is fruit with dark malts. Flavour is on par with the nose. Ferris (16499) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 7, 2017
Bottle - Dark malt and dark fruity notes. Dark jet brown with a decent light brown head. Lots of carbonated, dark chocolate and and dark fruity finish. mcberko (18956) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 7, 2017
330mL bottle, pours a deep dark brown with a small tan head. Aroma brings out some phenols, some toasted malt and plastic. Flavour is loaded with phenols, with lots of plastic, sweet toasted malt and some caramel. A little off, with the plasticy notes characterizing this. Okay. Oakes (18828) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 7, 2017
Medium brown with a hint of opacity. A touch of toasty, with a sweetish character. An odd one, it has a touch of chocolate and a note of toffee, but none of this makes it effectively. The elements don’t really come together. Not one I’m liking. Nicke80 (834) - Södertälje, SWEDEN - JAN 13, 2017
33 cl bottle from systembolaget. Pours black with big head. Roasted coffe aroma with sour berries. Coffee taste with cocoa and short bitter after taste.
