Pours a deep black color, topped with a generous dark beige colored head. Initially quite distinct fruity aroma, some citruses, later on caramel aroma develops, also slight roasty notes. Taste starts sweet (slightly), roasty quality to it, finishing with a mild bitterness and some coffee notes in the aftertaste.

Bottle share at Bruce’s pad. Semi opaque dark brown beer, small pale tan head. Palate is light and semi dry. Good fine carbonation. Thin dark malts but they bring a little tangy roast. Robust floral bitterness with an undertone of marmalade. Light finish. Strong bitter linger. Decent.

Scopey (7444) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 28, 2014
Bottle thanks to Kenny. It pours deep brown with a small light tan head. The nose is toasty, bitter-sweet, brown sugar, fruitcake, marshmallow and nougat. The taste is bitter, roasted malt, toast, earth, pepper, charred wood, tar, citrus rind and light burnt notes with a dry, toasty finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Bitter and burnt. Not much depth. So-so.

Bottle shared in London - pours clear brown with a frothy khaki head. Well toasted malts with nips of cocoa, earth and coffee. Light sweet flavor with some burnt wood, coffee grounds, bitter earth, burnt grains. Light bodied with average carbonation. Mild roast in the finish with note of burnt pine, earth, more charred grains, some citrus rind. Pretty basic.

Palme (3591) - Bergen, NORWAY - NOV 26, 2014
0.33l bottle shared outside in a random place where it smells like mariuahna in Barcelona. A really cloudy deep dark brown one. Almost black in a way with a huge brownish head. The nose has licorice and hoppy tones. Some dark slightly roasted tones also. Smells really nice. Dryish flavors. Slightly floral. Dark and a little bit roasted. Easy to drink. Lots of hoppy tones. Fresh. Yeah, I like it. 11.08.2014
