Black with a minimal brown head, quickly dissipating leaving a small ring around the edge. Aroma is sweet and boozy with honey, caramel, cocoa, some dried fruits, grapes, slight phenolic and notes of higher alcohol. Taste is very sweet malty, fruity and boozy, low bitterness. Finish is very sweet and syrupy , light bitter, honey, licirice, hints of chocolate, alcohol. Full bodied, oily and sticky texture, flat carbonation.
Too sweet and hot with some unclean notes.
375 ml bottle. 2012 vintage. Pours a thick black with no head. Aromas of dark molasses, licorice, and sweetened black coffee with quite a bit of alcohol. Flavors of sweet dark chocolate. Smooth and silky. Quite warm Fredd_an (250) - Borlänge, SWEDEN - APR 30, 2015
Kolsvart med lätt krona som snabbt försvinner. Kryddig, alkohol stark & söt honungsdoft. Värmande alkohol som tar över lite för mycket. Mycket sötma, mycket stark, mycket honuuung!! Inte så väl balanserad.

Bottle from brewdog bar, Sheffield. Pours like black silk out of the bottle, no head. Aroma is honey surprisingly, but also syrupy alcohol hiding behind the sweetness. Taste is rich sweetness, strong alcohol warmth afterwards. Oily and thick, slightly over carbonated for me. Couldn’t drink 2, but lovely beer for a one off (quite pricy).
