Look - pours black like crude oil. No head whatsoever. Some slick alcohol lacing around the top of the glass.
Smell - fruit and faint roastiness until I accidentally snorted some! Now quite a bit of coffe like roast literally on the nose. Alcohol burn in the nostril. But, hey, can't count off for that ;). Smells like a Standard stout. Like what is has going for it so far.
Taste - the roastiness is mild with very little bitterness that I normally associate with a stout. Very little alcohol burn. This undead puppy is smooooth!!! Still very flavorful yet having trouble picking them out. There is some chocolate and very mild nutty notes. Little to no coffee notes. It is interesting, compelling me to find more.
Feel - very little carbonation. I would like a bit more but it is high abv. Full mouthfeel it's a drink that eats like a meal. I can't drink more than this bomber. Not too heavy though.
Overall - Very solid stout. I could have used a bit more hops despite the style. I just think it would add to the complexity which is sturdy but flat with no highs and lows. But, then again, I'm probably half lit now! I would buy again!

Bought at Total Wine & More in Boynton Beach Florida and brought back home to Sweden just a few weeks ago.

The beer pours like thick, black oil into the #Orrefors Stout glass with a thin beige head leaving lacing on the inside.

Nose: Coffee, dark chocolate, cocoa powder, roasted malt, brown sugar, molasses and wood.
Taste: Coffee, oak, roasted malt, dark chocolate, vanilla, grain and tobacco.
Mouth: Full body. Complex structure. Light carbonation. Dry and light bitter ending. Smooth.

Appearance: dark brown in color with a 1/4" head that disappears to some large surface bubbles.

Smell: roasted coffee and some earthy tones rise from the glass.

Taste: roasted malt, espresso, dark chocolate, some brown sugar, and an earthy finish. Bitterness is hearty and alcohol is well hidden.

Mouthfeel: heavy in body. Lightly crisp to start, smoother and slightly dry at the finish. Long lasting aftertaste.

Overall: well balanced big stout that is slow sipping but extremely satisfying.
