Pours black and viscous with a deep tan head that dissipates. Aroma of roasted malt, cocoa, vanilla, slight whisky. Smooth, warming flavor that accentuates the sweet malt and roasted grains with a hint of vanilla. Finishes very smooth and sweet leaving a pleasant residual roast and slightly alcoholic presence.

When pouring the beer, it has a black-brown color. Beige / brown foam with large bubbles. The foam disappeared at a leisurely pace, leaving thin trails. The scent has a roasted sweet malt tonnes. Complex flavors of coffee and dark chocolate. Orange and Clove. But can also find some cherries and thin vanilla. Very big in fragrance. The taste has a sweet roasted malt. Great flavors of roasted coffee and dark chocolate. Also little orange and cloves. But even some cherries and vanilla thin toward the end. Great flavors sitting in and marries perfectly. Medium to full body. Lightweight carbon dioxide, with small bubbles. A perfect match was guaranteed to bitterness. A really good balanced Porter / Stout.

Totaly black, clear beer with a three finger high, dark brownbeige head. Lacing stays on the glass when the head sinks down.

Nose: Roasted sweet malt, dark chocolate, licorice, pumpernickel, dried fruit, hazelnut and vanilla. Great nose!
Taste: Dark, roasted malt, dark chocolate, fudge, licorice, ash, coffee ground, red fruit and some vanilla.
Body: Medium to full body. Great texture and bitterness. A perfect sweetness matches the bitterness. Medium carbonated. The 9% ABV is very well hidden.

A really GREAT beer!

On tap @Järntorget Bishops Arms, Göteborg.
Black, with a good light brown head.
The smell is not too strong, but with a good toasted, hazelnut notes, cappuccino.
It is more present in the mouth, without being too much. The 9 ABV is totally well hidden.
Tosted, coffee, dustiness. Not too full, it remains drinkable.
Average body.
Long, bitter and toasted aftertaste.
