Zlotta (2255) - Hagen, GERMANY - OCT 5, 2016
Sampled from tap at ’BierCab’. Pitch black with a creamy, light brown head. Sweetish, roasty-malty and quite fruity aroma of dark chocolate, coffee, some ash and dark ripe fruits. Sweetish-malty, moderately roasty and slightly fruity taste of dark chocolate, lots of coffee, licorice, dark ripe fruits and some tar, followed by a medium long, moderately roasty-bitter finish, a bit warming-alcoholic finish. Medium to full body, slightly creamy mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Nice, but not as good as the other versions I’ve had.

espenra (996) - Kurland, NORWAY - OCT 3, 2016
UPDATED: OCT 3, 2016 On tap at Schouskjelleren. It poured a pitch black colour with a minimal light brown head. Aroma is massive with lots of coffee, dark chocolate, liqorice, oak, vanilla and hints of rum. Flavour is not very balanced. Sharp notes of alcohol and oak, yet smooth notes of vanilla balanced with rum, dark roasted coffee and dark cocoa. Long, lingering aftertaste.
