Glouglouburp (6104) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 31, 2012
In short: A sticky sipper like so many others.
How: Bottle 330ml, consumed approximately 6 months after the beer release, relatively fresh for a beer like this
The look: Near black body topped by a small beige head
In long: Nose has a lot of black liquorice candy and a good amount of roast. Taste has plenty of sweet raisins, soft black liquorice candies, burnt wood, tar, soy sauce, a shot of black Sambuca, black berries. Body is thick-slimy and carbonation is rather soft. Alcohol is very apparent and it really bites in the finish. Strong sweetness sensation with sticky candies in the after-taste. I could feel some wood in there but not specifically Rum barrels. All in all this is just another big monster beer, moderately enjoyable when you want to slowly sip on a big beer. I enjoyed this one on my hotel balcony in FlŚm with view on the magnificent fjord, yep, there are some things money canít buy, and Iím really happy beer isnít one of them.

jackl (5477) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - OCT 20, 2012
Bottle @ home. The pourís deep brown with a tiny tan head that quickly disappears. The nose is of boozy wood, rum, hot raisin cake, hints of vinous berry and mild cocoa powder, cinnabon. The taste is very sweet raisin bran cereal, boozy wood. You definitely get accents of rum. Runny toffee. Mild chocolate. A bit thin on the long finish. This drinks to itís abv. Soft body. Overall, a decent porter, though not one Iíll rush back to.
