1FastSTi (3336) - Glendale, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 22, 2012
Tap. Pours to a dark brown/black body with a beige head. The beer was extremely drinkable. Smooth flavors that consisted of light coffee, black malts, subtle zinc (hard water?), and light black licorice. Like a "porter-lite". The palate had a subtle metallic component that was either caused by light souring or hard water. All-in-all, very drinkable.

beige head leaves some lacing. coffee coloured. aroma is sourish, old wet wood, hint of anise. taste is citric acid, roasted malts with a bitter finish, ends wry tannines. rather thin body, medium carbonation. didn’t work for me, the combination sour-bitter-wry is not mine. bottle 33cl / bbf 2017

Cool_Bond (1397) - Kung av Öl @ Facebook, SWEDEN - SEP 11, 2014
The aroma of dark malt, coffee and dark chocolate. Good but still a bit sour in taste. It even has a light fruitiness but taken over with coffee and chocolate. The aftertaste has a good bitterness that fills the upper part of the mouth of a weak moment. Sur and still quite watery.

TheJestersBeer (2060) - SWEDEN - SEP 10, 2014
330ml bottle. Pours almost pitch black, with a brown head. Roasted, quite acidic, vaguely funky aroma, coffee beans, licorice, earth, faint smoke, tobacco. Dry, medium body and bitterness, balanced CO2. Roasted, acidic, faintly funky taste, chocolate, coffee beans, licorice, earth, hay. Technically competent, but the acidic elements, and the roasted character really needs more body and/or residual sweetness IMO, to be balanced. (2014-09-10)

Zekada (136) - Helsingborg, SWEDEN - SEP 8, 2014
Bottle from systembolaget. Smell of dark roasted malts. Dosen’t really smell much. Pours dark solid brown with a small beige head. Taste has some sweet bread, some malts roasted dark chocolates. Palate is full in body at the same time subtle. Overall an okay beer which offers more in taste than in smell.

BlackHaddock (3763) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - SEP 2, 2014
330ml bottle: shared between 6 at the Midlands Tasting Group on 24th Aug 2014. Pours dark brown with a creamy head in colour and texture. Not my thing, a sour farmhouse with lemons in the both the aroma and taste, add a dark maltiness throughout with some dry roasted nut flavours and you have got the taste I did. I would say it was different more than interesting and I did not take to it at all.

fantti (704) - FINLAND - AUG 29, 2014
Kaatuu snifteriin sysimustana ja noin 1,5 sormen paksuisella ruskealla vaahdolla. Mosaiikkimaista pitsiäkin jää kivasti lasin reunalle. Tuoksussa vahvimpana on kahvisuus ja makea suklaisuus ja soijamaisuus. Vaikken tiedä, onko tähän käytetty belgihiivaa, niin sellainen marjainen mausteisuus tulee myös leivänä nenään. Hiven savuakin saattaa olla joukossa. Maku on hyvin erilainen, lakritsi on suuressa roolissa kahvisuuden vain tukemana. Belgihiivainen marja ja mausteet ovat myös läsnä, pienen makeuden ja happamuuden (lambichiivasta?) siivittämänä. Suutuntuma on melko tuhti, jonkin verran humaloitu ja makeahko ollen samalla hyvin juotava. Hyvä, hieman erilainen ja suht monipuolinen portteri, jännä nähdä lambic-panimon tekevän muutakin olutta.
