Bottle 275ml @ home. [ My UK Beer # 1000 ]

Aroma is moderate malty, roasted, burnt, chocolate, dark berry - forest berry, cigar - tobaco, wood, oak, light alcohol. Flavor is moderate to heavy sweet and moderate bitter with a long duration. Body is full, texture is oily - syrupy - creamy - smooth, carbonation is soft - flat. Plain and very very complex and very easy to drink ... give me more ;o)) (020708)

omhper (25750) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - JUL 9, 2008
Bottled at RBESG. Black as night, beige head. Evident vanilla and oak aroma with cocoa and coffee underneath. Fairly sweet with full body. Careful soft chococlate and coffee flavour. Quite reminiscent of Kaggen, but with more oak and sweetness. Less salty licorice and more oak than in the regular version. Very well made.
