Thanks heavy! He found it in Vrutak and shared with me and ogivlado. Actually had it before Drei Von Dänen... Anyway... Blackish body with a huge dark tan/grey/brown ead. Fresh herbal malty nose, light fruity notes, of apple, slightly sourish, slightly roasty. Light dry roasty taste, some chocolate, light bitterness too, herbal I guess. Balanced malty porter, though there was something about it I didn’t like.

JohnRMurdoch (3202) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - MAY 7, 2013
Keg @ BrewDog. Almost black colour, decent beige head. Tobacco cocoa & coffee aroma & flavour. Smooth but a bit of an insipid vegetable aftertaste. Unusual but not great.

jesperhammer (2838) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 6, 2013
01-MAY-2013, draft @Bir & Fud. Almost black with beautifull high cappuchino head. Really nice work by the barman. Roasted, burnt, chocolate aroma but weak. Taste is stronger and more flavorfull. Almost flat with medium body.

Davros (1869) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - MAY 5, 2013
Pours black with a large tan head. Nose shwos roasted malt, soft funky notes, liquorice and soft cocoa. Interesting flavour, there’s some distinct fruity acidity in a lambic way along with gentle roasted malt. Could use mroe carbonation and a richer body.

larsga (6140) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 3, 2013
Medium brown head. Nearly opaque black body goes hazy deep dark red at edge. Roasty earthy chocolatey aroma with vanilla, smoke, and chocolate pudding notes. Dry-acidic roasty herbal chocolatey taste with vinegary earthy notes. Mid-to-thin body. Mild mouthfeel. Dryish earthy herbal roasty aftertaste with smoky vinegary burnt notes. It’s not bad, but really unusual, and I don’t much enjoy the sourness. (0.75l bottle, wine monopoly, web order.)

WeissGary (285) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - MAY 2, 2013
Keg at Brewdog, Glasgow, Scotland. Quite a peculiar beer. Spicey aroma, spicey and milky taste with a peculiar finish supposedly representing tobacco. Interesting, well worth a try... A nice beer!

Mortlach (962) - Rome, ITALY - APR 26, 2013
26/04/2013 Bir&Fud (handpump). Bruna, densa, quasi impenetrabile, schiuma biancastra-beige leggera e persistente. Al naso tostato, leggero affumicato e spezie (tabacco). Ha una grande beva ma anche una discreta complessità, emergono note torbate e di tabacco che la rendono assolutamente originale e unica nel suo genere. Corpo leggero, appena watery, carbonazione soft. Fantastica!
