Sample from bottle, FØL 2013. Dark brown colour with a light tan head. Sweet aroma with roasted malts, licorice, coffee and chocolate. Taste is sweet. Medium body, creamy texture. Finishes sweet with chocolate, licorice, coffee, dark dried fruits, and a light burn from alcohol. Lacks bitterness to be "imperial". Borup (14548) - Albertslund, DENMARK - JAN 27, 2013

66 cl bottle @ Timo A, BBE 2014olio (10288) - Tampere, FINLAND - DEC 10, 2012
Aroma is rather nice with lots of licorice and some coffee notes. Flavour has ash, some licorice and distant tobacco notes. A bit too much CO2 on palate. Too ashy but decent anyway.
66 cl bottle @ Timo A.lusikka (7813) - Tampere, FINLAND - DEC 10, 2012
Pours deep dark ruby red, almost black color with no head. Aroma of licorice, dark berries, caramel, some salt, roasted malts, hints of coffee and dark chocolate. Flavor of ash, dark berry notes, toasted malts, mild chocolate, faint coffee notes and licorice. Dry, bitter palate with a nice coffee and licorice twist.
660 ml bottle. Thanks Timo A.

Pours a black colour with a small beige head. Aroma of roasted malts, nuts and salty licorice. Flavour of roasted malts, bread, salty licorice, biscuit, fruity hops and some nuts. Medium bodied, slick mouthfeel and a roasty, salty, bready finish. Rather nice and well balanced for a 6.8% abv beer.

70cl bottle via trade with Christian Scheffel. Pours nearly black with a lasting creamy beige head and lacings. Nose & taste is roasted malts, coffee, fruit and liquorice. On the sweet side but however very smooth and tasty with coffee and liquorice up front. Vague alcohol, caramel and slighly ashy. Just as nice and drinkable as I expected it to be.
