Lovely black pour which builds up a milk chocolate colored head. The head has low retention and leaves no lacing.
I’m getting coffee, caramel and some notes of alcohol. The beer has an ABV of 11.2% so I was expecting at least some alcohol in the aroma.
There are also hints of vanilla and bread.
The flavor has hints of prunes, dark chocolate, vanilla and is a tad bit vinous.
The mouth feel is silky smooth and the beer has a low carbonation level.
The finish is very long with loads of roasted malts and chocolate. Lovely!
This beer is much like the one I reviewed back in January, but it does not have as much liquorice to it as the last edition. It’s also slightly more vinous.
I enjoyed this one slightly more than the last one. Score: 4.2/5.
As usual I bought more than one bottle of this beer so I’ll do another review of it some time in the future.
This beer is available at Systembolaget in Sweden.
