Black with a lasting tan head. Aroma has chocolate, coffee, a hint of peat smoke and some citrus hop. Dry and roasted, licorice dominated, flavour with C-hop bitterness and a slight hint of peat adding complexity.
I didn’t know Barack was this bitter, but I’ll take Xbeeriment’s word for it.

UPDATED: FEB 2, 2014 50cl bottle with the most nondescript label probably ever. Dumb tribute though.
It pours a dark brownish black with a foamy tan head. The head is rocky and sticks for a nice while before receding to some nice lacing.
The smell immediately stands out as it is one of the most fragrant stouts I have smelled. It is unique as well. It has an almost fruity tang to it with a ton of smokiness in various forms, mostly smoked peat and roasted malts but there is also a hint of campfire.
The flavor is big and bold. It isn’t super smoky, but super, super roasty. There are notes of coffee, campfire wood, a nice smoky bitterness, smoked peat, and some dark chocolate. Some citrusy hops start to come in after a few drinks, adding to the bitterness. It is surprisingly light bodied, but it isn’t light or water, just smooth and drinkable.
A fine brew.

500ml bottle brought back home from Vinmonopolet Vika in Oslo. Opaque back body under a fading, tan-coloured head. Smell of dark fruits, dusty hops and some notes of pine. Dark bitter fruits in flavour along with leafy hops supported by a spicy touch, quite peaty, in fact. Hop bitter endnotes. Different and flavoursome stout (shared with Finn and MrSoul, Tromsø 22.09.2011).
