COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We have passion for dark beers here in Grimstad. This beer you are holding is a luscious and full bodied stout that we have carefully aged on licorice root and vanilla beans. We brewed this dark ale with several varieties of caramelized sugars for a rich and smooth finish with sutble notes of toffee and vanilla. All of our beers are unpasteurized and unfiltered so please pour carefully to leave the sediment behind.

Perun (219) - Rostov-on-Don, RUSSIA - OCT 1, 2017
Black color. The aroma and taste - coffee, vanilla, are a little oak, fruit. At first, apparently, that it is a lot of vanilla, but postopenno becomes nomal

Smell is fantastic. Big heavy chocolate. Taste is fruity but a bit flat. Apricot, banana, but way to thin.

visionthing (5494) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - SEP 8, 2017
On tap at Habiat, Trondheim. Dark, dark brown, close to black, with a modest, beige head. Roasty aroma with dark chocolate, dark fruits and hints of licorice and coffee. Smooth, desserty and quite delicious in small amounts.

3.7
GustavJ (67) - Drammen, NORWAY - AUG 17, 2017
50 cl Bottle. Dark brun, almost black. Dense brun head. Red forest berries in primary aroma, followed by coffee, dark chocolate and liquorice. Lots of vanilla / molasses sweetness in taste, paired with a nice acidity. Nice tropical touch. Complex, but too sweet to deserve a place among the top beers in its class. Undoubtedly fantastic for a variety of sweet and heavier desserts. Really a typical "one-small-taste-is-amazing-too much-is-really-too-much"-beer.

cosmichearse (3) - - AUG 6, 2017 does not count
UPDATED: AUG 6, 2017 Bottle. Pours thick black, head is dark tan and fizzes out like caramelized sugar in a pan. Aroma is vanilla, roasted malts, toffee. Taste is very smooth - easy drinking for a ten percenter very little alcohol taste. This beer shines best on the swallow with a creamy caramel, vanilla toffee aftertaste and faint licorice. This is easily one of my favourite beers by this brewer even considering their large stable. Hope this becomes a year round staple.
