Bottle shared in London - I bought this one...somewhere...then aged it a few years. Pours deep black with a creamy, beige head. The nose holds well roasted malts, cocoa, dark fruits, raisins. Medium to big sweet flavour, with nicely rounded chocolate character, scorched earth, burnt marshmallow, toffee. Medium to full bodied with average carbonation. Lightly warming finish, more cocoa, ripe fruits, berries, raisins. Really nicely rounded. Good depth. Great stuff. axl (980) - Lund, SWEDEN - MAR 31, 2016

Rich licorice and chocolate taste, the alcohol is well hidden. Sweet fudge, ash and mild rosted coffee notes . Sweet finish aswell without beeing gooey.

Flaska från SB. Svart med tunnt beiget skum. Sötsyrligt rostat kaffe, rågbröd, surdeg och kola i doften. Mellantung kropp, inleds fylligt men tunnas ut rätt snabbt. Smakar lakrits, starkt kaffe med lite syra i bakgrunden. Torra, mörkrostade toner. Gott med sött till! Dahlstrom (420) - Nygatan 29, SWEDEN - JAN 2, 2016
500 ml bottle from Systembolaget. Pitch-black with a small mocha head. Aroma of roasted malt, dark chocolate, coffee and "julmust?" Taste reflects the aroma, but something strange happens with the aftertaste. Medium bodied. Medium bitterness. And medium carbonation. mzaar (3552) - Varberg, SWEDEN - DEC 3, 2015

Draught at Malmø Craft Beer Festival 2015. High creamy and lasting light brown head. Pitch black body. Spicy alcohol dominated roasted malt aroma. Flavor less alcohol dominated but the beer has a creamy roaasted malt coffee liquorice flavor with a suitable amount of hops bitterness, a low carbonation and a long finish.
