Holy jesus! I wasn't expecting this one to be found soon (at least not by me as I live so for away from the bigger cities of Sweden), but luckily I went to Gothenburg and found this one on-tap(!).
Looks really good, a deep black color with a nice, tight, beige foam. Really nice, the looks almost makes me drool.
Aroma is crazy, tons of honey, rosted malts, slightly hoppy notes. But there are also hints of fudge and slight notes of raisins which gives it a slightly wineous hint. Great! It's hard to describe how good it smells, I really wish for every fan of beer to be able to try this one on-tap.
Now to the taste. How is it? Loads of honey, molasses, fudge, chocolate, vanilla and hints of those earlier mentioned raisins. It is hard to develope the description of the taste further, this has got to be tried out.
Serving type: on-tap

Tiny 2008 bottle split three ways. Thanks Don - without you I would never drink whales!
Appearance is dark brown with very little head. Consistent color throughout.
Smells of leather and some burnt grain. A little smoke and then some sweetness at the end.
Initial taste is dark fruit with some chocolate notes. Smoke comes through towards the end but very subtle and smooth. Taste lingers and expands leaving hints of dried cherry and more chocolate.
Mouthfeel is nice but nothing amazing. I wouldn't describe it as thin but I like a bit more viscosity from this style.
Really enjoyable beer. Don't share it with more than two friends - the small bottle split three ways was about right.
