0,33 bottle at home. - Powerful chocolate and dark fruits, burnt bread and sweet nuts on the aroma. The flavor is very nutty with a slight flavor of wort and vanilla. The burning alcohol-flavor drags it down, though.

Flaska frn SB. Legat i kylskpet ett halvr drygt, flaskan kan skert vara ca 1 r gammal. Mrk, nst intill ogenomtrnglig kolabrun frg med tunt beiget skum som mestadels frsvinner. Doftmssigt domineras den av vermogen och torkad frukt, lite bananpur och bananbrd, mrk brdsirap, stt rgbrd, vldigt tydliga toner av muscovadosocker. ven en del kola och choklad. En lttare kaffeton anas ocks, typ iskaffe-drink eller islatte. Kropp t det strre och tyngre hllet som fyller ut munnen vl. I smaken framtrder en humlebeska som hller upp den annars malttunga kroppen och ger den lite bett och pigghet. Mycket kola, karamell och choklad, men utan ngon strre sliskighet. Mer kaffe och tyngre, rostade toner i smaken. Hller verlag ihop snyggt. En stor l. Utifrn min bedmning skerligen en vldigt lagringsbar l, men pga brist p utrymme behvde det rensas...

The beer is unclear and very dark brown almost black. The foam is dirty white and will properly. The foam has medium to large bubbles that hang around for a while. The foam leave direct track in the glass. Here you are met by quite malty aromas and a little toasted. With hints of dried fruits such as dates, raisins, a little chocolate. Some herbs and brown sugar, nuts and a little molasses. Something small wet wood tar echo. The flavors reminiscent of the scents of roasted malt in the beginning. Here are some more sweetness and more chocolate and a little caramel. Some dried fruits of dates and raisins. Certain orange towards the end. Medium to full body. Moderate Carbonic. A little sweetness and soft bitterness. A little alcohol on the end.
