375 ml bottle @ Timo A.
Pours pitch black color with a small, rapidly dissipating beige head. Aroma of bourbon, vanilla, mild red wine notes, roasted malts and dark chocolate. Flavor of dark berries, roasted malts, tar, honey, some dark chocolate, bourbon, vanilla and some soy. Some mildly disturbing tangy notes here, hoped for smoother experience. Quite complex and tasty but a bit off. Somewhat disappointing.
Pours pitch black, with a dark brown edge, and a very thin beige head.
Roasted, woody aroma, licorice, vanilla, bourbon, ashes, earth, coffe, dark chocolate, faintly sour.
Off-dry, full bodied, mid to high bitterness, very low CO2.
Roasted, ashy taste, licorice, wood, vanilla, coffee, high alcohol notes.
Quite robust, harsh and dry finish, not very balanced. Thought this would age well in the cellar, but it certainly did not. Disappointing. (2017-02-19) Dahlstrom (382) - Nygatan 29, SWEDEN - NOV 2, 2016

Bottle. Colour...very dark brown with no head. Nose...funky, fresh honey and kind of fruity. Palate...flat, tangy and honeyed. There’s a dry feel and some bitterness as well as booze and coffee-like notes. The finish is bitter and long. Vignale (3781) - Malmö, SWEDEN - MAR 23, 2016
Flaska från SB. 2013 vintage. Lite vass öl med mycket saltlakrits, rostad malt, aningen körsbär med kärnbeska, ganska torr vilket gör att sötman som skulle kunna ha bundit ihop smakerna saknas, viss fatkaraktär kan märkas med lite ek och vanilj. Har inte klarat sig alls lika bra som hypnopompa. Astringent. Ok TychoJames (1282) - Örebro, SWEDEN - MAR 17, 2016
Flaska inhandlad på systembolaget mars 2013. Mörkbrun vätska. Nästan skumlös. Ganska neutral doft av rostad malt, knäck och kaffe. Ganska spritig och vass smak. Fat, kaffe och bitter choklad. Relativt tunn munkänsla. Lätt sötma i eftersmak

(Bottle) Black colour with brief, foamy, beige head. Malty, roasted nose with bourbon, oak wood, raisins, toast, black rye bread, coffee, cacao, liquorice, honey and some orange peel. Malty, roasted taste with notes of liquorice, salmiak, oak wood, raisins, toast, coffee, honey, vanilla and a generous roasty, citric bitterness. Almost full body, with balanced sweetness. Possibly a bit unbalanced, but really tasty with lots of liquorice, honey and bourbon barrels. Nice one. vjohans (756) - SWEDEN - JAN 9, 2016

Bottle. Opaque dark brown beer with a large beige head. Aroma is malty with notes of caramel, coffee, chocolate, oats and some hints of honey cakes. Flavor is malty with notes of caramel, chocolate, alcohol, coffee and apples. Not very balanced I’m afraid. rouhlas (3584) - GREECE - NOV 13, 2015
