Svart med lavt lys brunt skum. Lukter espresso, mørke frukter og mørk sjokolade. Søt i starten, utover kommer salt og lett bitter smak. Medium lang saltbitter avslutning. Rune (12587) - Tromsø, NORWAY - APR 16, 2015
Small glass draught at the brew cellar. Tan-coloured layer, solid artwork on the glassware. Body was black as pitch. Dark malty aromas joined by dusty hops. Blended flavor profile of dark malts, dark fruits, pine, and dark spices. Prolonged ending added by warming alcohol. Full bodied. Delicately made (Oslo 14.04.2015).

On tap at the brewpub. Nothing wrong with this, but nothing to impress, either. Lacks an extra dimension to lift it, no coffee, licquorice or similar elements. Try harder!
