Flaske 0,25l drukket i Skibotn 25 Des 13. Svart. Middels høyt mokkafarget skum som flater helt ut. God aroma. Litt røstet malt & mørk frukt. Smaken er syrlig frukt med en god fylde. Blir enda syrligere etter hvert. Avslutninga er tørr sjokolade.

dixebra (5) - La Felguera, SPAIN - FEB 21, 2014 does not count
Botella 0,25l . En el Cabanon. Color negro potente, un petroleo muy llamativo y que no defrauda. Fácil de beber pese a su alta graduación alcohólica. Muy recomendable para después de cenar.

This beer is more than outstanding. Mathematically speaking it’s like outstanding^2. Appearance: Pitch black, you won’t see anything on the other side of the glass, so don’t even bother looking. I took a photo of it and checked in GIMP and it was 0,0,0 in RGB meaning it was pure black. And it really is. Head was dark tan, medium in size and dropped pretty quickly, leaving no trace neither on the glass or the beer. Aroma: Roast, coffee, roast, chocolate, roast and repeat. And so intense! Amazing aroma, and you can barely smell the alcohol (and it’s 15,2% abv!). And even that little hint of alcohol does absolutely nothing to the aroma, if anything, it gives it more power. Taste: Very rich in taste, with lots of roasted malts, coffee and dark chocolate. Taste of alcohol is present but it’s nice, pleaseant and warming. And again - taste is very rich, very intensive and in your face. Pure awesomeness. Mouthfeel: full bodied and almost flat. Overall: Another bottle please, this beer is insane and that’s the way I like it! Enjoyed for a very long time from a teku glass. Beer was served in room temperature (highly reccommended!)

Moebbels (662) - FINLAND - FEB 15, 2014
Body is pitch black and oily with a quickly disappearing brown head. Nose has deep sherry notes accompanied by coffee, chokolate and molasses. Taste is intense, beginning sweetly and finishing in a brandy-like warm, bitter finish that lasts forever. Carbonation is quite low and the palate is rich, oily and luscious. This is a nice big beer for slow enjoyment with a good friend.

.05 litre sample from the bottle at beergeek. as black as black can be with half a dozen tiny brown bubbles on the surface; thick and intimidating; aroma of molasses, choc vanilla ice cream, old leather; sticky date pudding flavours with some sweet soy sauce and burnt toast; extremely well balanced in the finish with plentiful burnt bitterness that never seems excessive and choc-coated caramel

Wonderful. Of course not a session beer, but end of evening yes yes. Pours from bottle with a fabulous dark chocolate head, fades quickly with no lacing. Rich chocolate nose, smooth and rich on the palate with a tang of carbonation. Follow through of dry but rounded flavour, perhaps a hint too much of alcohol (15.2%) but I can live with that... great.

Hermod (5880) - Vantaa, FINLAND - JAN 24, 2014
33cl bottle, shared @ William K. Batch #102, bottled on 03-05-13. 15,2. Pitch black, almost no head. Soy sauce, dark bread in aroma. Flavor has soya, burnt malt, dark chocolate, sweetness. Sticky. Warming, full bodied. Very heavy for sure. At the moment not that enjoyable. Not what I expected.
