Pours deep black. Lovely solid tan head. Leaves good lacing on glass. Big chocolate, coffee, alcohol, lactose, aniseed liquorice, nuts,. Flavour is a creamy milk latte, caramel, hazelnut, dry earth, liquorice, cherry. A slightly dry finish but it is so luscious it’s leaves a milk chocolate aftertaste. Slight alcohol hit. It’s a beer you delve into and find it hard to leave. Layers of complexity. Great beer. suurjuust (3839) - ESTONIA - JUN 25, 2014

Bottle boosted @ the Royal Mile, just this evening! kryon (3929) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - MAY 28, 2014
Pours black with a huge fluffy tan head and nice lacing on the glass.
The aroma is rich, sweet & floral with nice honey tones. It’s pleasantly but lightly roasty and has just a touch of smoke.
The flavor is not as sweet as the aroma, it’s got a nice coffee like roastiness, a medium but well suited level of bitterness, some floral & rich honey notes are featured as well. The beer has some spicy alcohol & the peatiness of the beer intensifies as it warms.
Really enjoyable stuff!
