nudiebear (109) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 17, 2014
Bottle. Poured dark with a tan head. Light curtains on the glass. Aromatics were moscavado, milk and nuts. Combined with tasting it I got roasted grains, espressooils. A long sweet taste with a disturbingly brutal bitter end. Good!

yngwie (13693) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 15, 2014
Bottle. A thick, finger-thick light tan to dark beige head forms over a dark, dark brown body that is almost clear. Tar, umami, some coffee and chocolate, caramel and nuts in the aroma. Some burnt sugar. Itís medium bodied and smooth on the palate, sweetish yet not cloying. Roasted malt kind of bitterness and some burnt notes in the finish. Caramel, tar hints, umami meatyness, coffee and some chocolate in the flavor. Pretty nice this one, but a tad sweet. And it could use some more body I think. 140815

Martin243 (785) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - OCT 26, 2013
Pint at the Schooner, Gateshead. Dark, tan head that faded. Earthy yeast and chocolate aroma. Cold coffee, dark bitter chocolate and tarry cough drop flavours. Full bodied, oily, long smooth finish. Nice beer, but I had two pints, and was beginning to tire of it towards the end of the second.
