375ml bottle

Bottled on 20.02.2011 - Bottle #1740/3600 - Pours pitch black with virtually no head at all. Aroma of roasted malts, cocoa, chocolate and coffee. Taste is quite sweet and roasty with hints of chocolate, cocoa and syrup. Finish is sweet and slightly roasty with hints of alcohol. A bit too sweet for my taste, and slightly unbalanced.

ClubGonzo (4904) - Bergen, NORWAY - APR 13, 2012
Bottle, shared with Bergen Beer Geek Tasting Crew’s Epic Abstrakt/Blåbær tasting, feat. special guests Foffern and StoreMy. :-) Jet black body, tiny dark caramel head. Aroma is pretty awesome: intense cocoa-chocolate tones, booze, espresso coffee, roasty dark malts and hints of coconut and wood. Taste is intense cocoa, dark chocolate and coffee, with hints of ashes and sweet malts. Dry mouthfeel, full body. Pretty damn good stuff.

(sampled at Dak’s, from ibrew2o3?). Pours syrupy dark brown. Thin head. Aroma is cocoa, wood, caramel and light coconut. Taste is sweet with honey-like characteristics. Full bodied and sticky. Good in small doses!

Mortlach (1477) - Rome, ITALY - FEB 18, 2012
30/06/2011 Birra+ (375ml bottle). Degustazione da Birra+. Nera, intensa, con riflessi color caffè, schiuma quasi assente e poco persistente. Aroma spiazzante, dolciastro, quasi stucchevole, vanigliato e zuccheroso. In bocca è dolcissima, cioccolatosa e vanigliata, con note di cocco ad aggiungere ulteriore dolcezza. Corpo medio, carbonazione soft. Birra senza dubbio particolare, ma decisamente modesta come riuscita e stucchevole anche in dosi da degustazione.

yngwie (15764) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - FEB 11, 2012
Bottle, 375ml corked, courtesy of Meilby. A minimal-sized tan head disappears quickly. Black body, oily pour. Soy sauce, licorice and roasted malts on the nose. A touch of alcohol too. Flavorwise there’s soy sauce, licorice, roasted malts, coffee and a faint touch of dark chocolate. Not much hoppy bitterness going on. Full-bodied and super soft. Lasting finish. Not much warmth going on, but it’s quite sweet. A nice beer indeed. 120211

Courtesy of madmitch76, cheers Ken! Corked and caged, the cork was a bear to get off, green bottle pours murky dark mahogany with brown edges and no head. The aroma is all molasses, some chocolate, some mild peatiness and then earthy chocolate and spices. The taste is nice and sweet and smooth with molasses, sludgy chocolate malts and sugary caramel goodness. There’s really no carbonation to speak of but this is a sipping beauty. There’s plenty of lingering sweetness and mild chocolate and dark roasted malts carrying deep into the after taste.
