What does it mean? Yes, what indeed does it all mean. Meaning of course is elusive and illusive. It can’t or shouldn’t be found on this bottle. Should it? Yet what if it was? Would you begin to look for pearls of wisdom or life direction on a beer label? Perhaps it’s been there all along. Since meaning is a mere illusion, perhaps we shouldn’t let it have any influence on our destiny. This particular beer refused to succumb to the illusion of meaning or allow capricious parameters to have any influence on its own fermented fate. Are we even asking the right question? Are you feeling frustrated in the emptiness? If so, that could be because someone got to this beer before you, and thus there’s a reason for that emptiness. It’s empty. And if so, perhaps there indeed is not any meaning for you here after all. Style over Substance, or Substance over the scriptures of Style? The latter, thank you very much. Twice.

Ungstrup (34210) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - SEP 22, 2010
Bottled. A very dark red-brown beer with a nice, but collapsing brown head. The aroma alcohol, berries, roastes malt, and a bit of iodine. The flavor is very sweet with strong notes of roasted malt as well as medium notes of cocoa beans, wood, iodine, and alcohol, leading to a dry roasted finish.

omhper (23313) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - SEP 27, 2009
Cask at Stockholm Beer Festival. Cloudy very dark brown. Licorice aroma. Mid-sweet with clean, rounded mouthfeel and medium body. Tarry licorice aroma - not much Belgian style about this Black Belgian Double IPA. Smoky, tarry and concetrated. Salty finish with San Diego style bitterness. Crazy BrewDog stuff as ever.

Clear and very dark red - brown beer. A little hop on the nose. Softish palate. Dark and bitter chocolate. Repressed but spicy hops. Some fruit, but well buried. A little off the beaten track.

Travlr (21166) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - NOV 5, 2009
Slightly cloudy deep copper color with a wafer thin light tan head and a decent amount of lacing. Aroma of Chivas Regal, hints of scotch and oak. Flavor begins with almond and hints of chocolate, a slight edge of hoppy bitterness, and then finishes much more on the sour side. Interesting and complex.
