Foffern (1070) - Bodø, NORWAY - APR 21, 2014
Bottle at home. Pours a black colour and a small, light brown head. Roasted and a bit sweet aroma with oak, vanilla, karamell and dark chocolate. The flavour has more touch of liqour and nice roasted malt and ash in the aftertaste. Has a silky and oily mouth feel, and a light bitterness. A powerful ale and is well-balanced.

Bottle@home from brewdog bristol
dark ruby mahogany with dark beige lacing. Rich vanilla and caramel notes on nose. Mellow milk chocolate and latte. Full bodied, slight carbonation, cold coffee hotel chocolate caramel batons and rich cocoa dry finish, warming but keeps the strength well disguised. One of the best so far.

Finn (3759) - Tromsø, NORWAY - FEB 24, 2014
Flaske 0,33l fra Vinmonopolet, Tromsø Sentrum. Drukket på RV124 4 Feb 14. Svart. Litt skum som daler raskt. God aroma av kaffe & whisky. Smaken innholdsrik. Sjokolade, lakris og en anelse whisky. Blir tørr etter hvert. Avslutter litt syrlig.

IPAgutten79 (362) - Skui, NORWAY - FEB 15, 2014
Kullsvart med lavt skum. Aromaen er utpreget malt og kaffe. Søtlig. Smaken er malt og kaffe. Alkoholen er ganske godt kamuflert, men kan kjennes både i smak og lukt. Tykk konsistens.

Bottle from some Vinmonopolet store enjoyed at home
Pours dark, black in glass, tanned head. Smells of roasted malts, coffee, bourbon, vanilla, oak and booze. Heavy sweet, boozy, whisky and oak, vanilla and cocoa with a nice finish of coffee. Moderate bitter finish. Nice barrel aged imperial stout!
