Ozzak (43) - BERGEN, NORWAY - NOV 1, 2012
Pours a dark brown, almost black which reveals some red when held to the light. Light brown head that settles a bit quickly. Aroma of caramel, cocoa powder and a hint of dark fruits. Taste is more of the afore mentioned, with some sweetness balanced towards a pleasant bitter aftertaste.

Skinnyviking (7767) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 17, 2012
Courtesy of Rune. Bottle. High creamy and long lasting light brown head. Very dark red brown body. Came rushing from the bottle. Roasted malt caramel cocoa nuts aroma. Bittersweet flavor of roasted malt caramel and cocoa with a hint of raisin and alcohol in the background. Not as sweet as feered. Low carbonation. Long aftertaste. Actually quite nice.

Palme (3603) - Bergen, NORWAY - DEC 23, 2011
0.33l bottle. This is a daark dark deep brown beer with a big massive tan head. Lovely chocolate aroma with notes of coffee, roasted malts, coffee and nuts. The carbonation levels are gentle to average and the mouthfeel on this one can only be described as thick, syrupy and oily. It has lots of flavor! Chocolate, cookies, chocolate ice cream, branches, rum raisins, ends really really drymouthing - or mouthdrying if you prefer, and it ends in a nice warming finish. Really solid!
