tfredvik (1200) - Oslo, NORWAY - SEP 4, 2012
Black body with a light-brown head, ok head retention and lacing. Quite strong roasted sweet aroma with chocolate, dark fruits, yeast and a touch of coffee. The taste is light sweet and the finish is light to moderate bitter and pleasantly dry. Rather strong and very pleasant flavours that follow the aroma: roasted notes, chocolate, fruits and berries, coffee, ash and faint yeast. Light to medium body (for from being as horribly light as some dry stouts tend to be), with a pleasant dry texture. Medium to soft carbonation. Impressive for a 4.7% ABV!
[33 cl bottle, from Meny Oslo City, Oslo]

Bathory (458) - Bryne, NORWAY - JUL 4, 2012
UPDATED: OCT 31, 2012 Pours black with a nice white head. Aroma of licorice, roast, and coffee. Taste is very simmilar, some nuts and grass to add. Quite dry palate. To be a 4,7 beer, it’s has a impressive depth and are rich on taste.

Palme (3546) - Bergen, NORWAY - JAN 4, 2012
0.33l bottle @ Henrik, Bergen. This is a deep deep brown - almost black beer with a nice big and lasting heavy lacing dense chocolate head. The aroma has chocolate, chocolate paper, some ashtray, cold coffee, roasted malts and hints of black berries. Quite nice. Oh, more ashy flavors in the taste. It’s average carbonated with a mild oily to watery mouthfeel. Some light burned/roasted malts in the flavor along with cold almost sweet coffee, some cardboard-hints before it ends in a chocolate-paper finish and a long mouthdrying aftertaste. The mouthfeel is of course as expected due to the 4.7% abv, but all in all this was a nice stout.

Bottle. Pours black with a light brown head. Aroma of roasted malt, coffee and chocolate. Medium sweet with a nice bitterness. Good balance, but a bit thin and watery. Nice and dry finish. Good Norwegian stout!

Mezcalmannen (395) - Oslo, NORWAY - SEP 30, 2011
A little sweetness, then distinct bitterness to the finish. Caramels in the aroma. Light body, I felt this beer had some weaknesses. (33 cl bottle)

garza (570) - Oslo (NO), Caracas (VE), VENEZUELA - AUG 20, 2011
Pours deep black with a brown and frothy head. Malts, some coffee and dark chocolate on the nose. Roasted malts with notes of cocoa in the flavour- Also some sensations of burnt caramel and dry fruits like raisins there. Medium sweetness, lightly bitter. Medium body, creamy, average to soft carbonation and a malty light bitter finish. Quite a surprise. Good one.
