Glouglouburp (6104) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 1, 2012
In short: A very sweet and slightly fruity dark black ale. Decent big beer
How: Bottle 500ml, consumed fresh the day of purchase from a Vinmonopolet in Norway
The look: Very near black body topped by a persistent small beige head leaving lots of lacings on the glass
In long: Nose is blackened malts, sugar pie, dark fruits, dark bread, some alcohol fumes. Taste is fudge cake with crunchy cake icing, burnt caramel, brown sugar, dates, dried figs, some black liquorice, timid herbal hops. This is a very sweet beer that somehow avoids feeling cloying. Body was very full, almost too full but the active carbonation helped to lighten the mouthfeel. Overall it is a decent dessert beer but not something I found easy to drink. Looks like most people enjoyed this beer more than I did, maybe I’m wrong, I’m so unsure of my opinions that half the time I’m only 50% certain that 1 beer out of 2 is above or below average.

Holmen1 (2716) - Stavanger, NORWAY - OCT 28, 2012
Fra flaske på Cardinaltreff okt-11: Sjokolade (mokkabønner) og kaffe, kanskje litt brunsukker eller rosiner i aromaen og smaken. Myk og fyldig munnfølelse. Behagelig bitterhet som balanserer sødmene. Nydelig øl, farlig lett å like.

fletchfighters (1118) - AUSTRALIA - OCT 21, 2012
Thanks to Club Gonzo for the bottle Jet black color, touches of ruby at the bottom of the glass. One finger, thick light mocha colored head. great staying power and body. Spotty lacing ad obvious ABV legs. Nose is of roasted malts, sweet and salty licorice, caramel, chocolate, and touches of ash. Good nose. Sweet licorice taste, mixed with a lot of caramel and some chocolate. Far closer to a US style stout with the sweetness. Medium bodied and light carbonation. Gets more robust and bitter towards the mid and back palate but sweetness really carries this. Good dry herbal licorice finish. Better towards the back end as the dryness is a good counter measure to the front sweetness. Kind of surprised on how very American this imperial porter is. not bad but was looking for more char and ash. Oh well

Vaiz (3533) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - OCT 17, 2012
Bottle @ home. Black pour, thin tan head. Aroma of licorice, chocolate, caramel, roasty malts and some sugars. Flavor is quite sweet, a bit bitter, a bit thin, roasty and sugary. The Lynchburg is much better.

UPDATED: OCT 10, 2012 Flaske fra Vinmonopolet. Svart som navnet, en del skum, smaker brent malt, lakris,rom/rosin kaffe/sjokolade. En relativt mørk liten sak

MadRobin (2036) - Silver Spring, USA - SEP 6, 2012
On tap 4 oz. sample at Pizzeria Paradiso at DuPont Circle neighborhood in Washington, DC. Opaque, near black, ruby red brown with off-white head and fair lacing. Aroma of toast, roast malt, chocolate, brown sugar and dark fruit. Taste of charred toast, raisin, brown sugar, dark fruit, vanilla and, once it warmed, a little alcohol. Medium/full body and medium/light carbonation with a nice mouthfeel. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tap. Pours clear deep ruby brown with a small brown head and some lacing. Aroma is muted with notes of chocolate and deep roasted malt dominating. Flavor is chocolate, coffee, kahlua with mild sweetness and a medium bitter coffee finish. Heavy warming sensation in the finish from the alcohol. Full bodied and rich in the mouth.
