Aroma of licorice, plums, chocolate, coffee, soy, light bourbon with big vanilla notes and chewy toffee. Very complex with a nice bourbon kick, more towards dark fruit and raisin than typical chocolate coffee, lots of flavors and very delicate. Svesse (8581) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - MAY 3, 2015

Raven black and a tiny beige ring around the glass. Well to be fair. No head. Aroma…oh yeah. A LOT! And nice. Chocolate, fruity and oak. Thick oily stuff with almost no carbonation. A bit sweet, but still quite balanced. No signs of alcohol. Maybe in my head after a while. Tasty little devil this one. Bourbon, cherry, chocolate and oak.markextrae (4410) - Alingsås, SWEDEN, SWEDEN - SEP 20, 2014

Black with a moderately appointed dirty tan covering that soon dissipates to edgework.
Nose is big on dark malts, spice, treacle toffee, molasses, cocoa rub.
Taste comprises roasted malt, liqourice, chocolate fudge, roasty vibes, dark toffee melt.
Full bodied, oily texture, sweet licks in the close.
Tasty enough offering if a little 1D and overly sweet in places.
