Bottle from Systembolaget that has been aged a few years. This is the 10.1 Abv version. It has probably gained by being aged. Powerful chocolate, coffee and crystal aroma and taste.

Bottle. Black liquid with almost no head. Aroma: roasted malts, coffee, dark sugars, hints of honey, chocolate, smooth. Taste: dark chocolate, coffee, sweet, raisins, candy. Low carbonation but pretty viscous mouthfeel. Good job! Vignale (3842) - Malmö, SWEDEN - JAN 16, 2013
Flaska från SB. Närmare ett år gammal. Nästan kolsvart och ett lågt snabbt försvinnande skum. Doft av hårdrostad malt, muskovadosocker, alkoholtoner, kaffelikör. Smaken söt, välrostad, lite brända toner, chokladkola, snäll beska. Ett riktigt godisöl som ändå inte känns sliskigt eftersom alkoholen som är väl dold i smaken bär upp sötman väl.

Really good and amiable beer. The smell and the taste is absolutely wonderful. But still think it is missing that little something that would make it perfect. The aftertaste is really good and is left for a while. Maesta (9) - SWEDEN - DEC 23, 2012 does not count

olsvammel (7249) - Örebro, SWEDEN - NOV 2, 2012
Appearance: The beer is dark dark brown, a very small tan head, some lacing and good curtains.
Taste: Starting very sweet, dark syrup, figs, raisins, marmalade, dark chocolate and bitter orange peel.
Palate: Little carbonation, sticky and oily, a heavy body, an almost coarse dry finish.
Overall: A very heavy brew, in many ways. Much body, much alcohol, much hops.
Note: Bottle 500 ml. (Vintage 2011) Reviewed 2011-11-17.
Bottle as a sample (will be available at Systembolaget) but this is 8% not 10,1%. Smell of chocolate and dark bread (vörtbröd). Similar taste with some subtle spices. Nice to lean back and sip at. Bov (12888) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - OCT 20, 2012
