Dark (almost black) colour, small-ish head. Coffee and liquorice aroma. Dry and toasted flavour with notes of coffee, hops and smoke. Long dry aftertaste.
Mycket karaktär, en närmast vildvuxen smak med en hel flora av nyanser att utforska. En klar överraskning som bjuder på en helhetsupplevelse. MikeKeller (956) - Kemi, FINLAND - SEP 23, 2009
Bottle from Systembolaget. This beer is as black as an october night. Only some reddish can be seen when looking against the light. Quickly dissappearing quite tall beautiful beige head. Aroma and flavor has roasted malts, coffee and some hops. Some fruits and rubber can be also tasted. Leaves an aftertaste kind of like you’ve smoked a sigarrette. Medium body, quite enjoyable.

(Bottle) Pours dark brown with red hints. Pale nougat coloured head. The aroma is medium to heavily roasted with burned notes. Tones of salty soy, new asphalt, burned/smoky rubber, cigar ash, green pepper/gravel/parsley-like coffee, dry cocoa/dark grainy chocolate, burned caramel, dark bread, nutshells and salty black liquorice. The nose is dry and clean with some “green-ish” hops lurking in the background. The flavour holds some sweetness alongside light to medium bitterness. Tones of caramel, sweet liquorice, soy, dark bready wort, coffee and chocolate (what a surprise). Hops are earthy and green. The mouthfeel is clean and light peppery with a near medium carbonation. Mild earthy roast, light mint and sweet liquorice in the finish. Light to medium bodied.
