2 oz. sample from bottle. Rating #2200! $20 @ Palmer Place. They charged this much for a taste of Utopias, so itís a value. Big sweet smell of sherry and brandy. No foam, just a dark ruby beer that bounces off a lot of room lights. Smell now has notes of Baileyís Irish Cream. First tiny sip is a bottomless pit of brown malt. Full of alcohol fumes, but somehow not hot. Just the first two sips have left the inside of my mouth with a coating of malt and resin. Heck, itís varnish and a clear coat on top, too. Even less than an ounce worth is quite intoxicating. No one who doesnít know the story of this drink would think itís a beer. Yet itís nothing less than, say, a Krampus distilled and reduced to its barest essence. No carbonation on my tongue. Definitely more potent than an 80 proof brandy. Alcoholic to the end.

Pours a jet black color, with a reddish brown head. Aromas of espresso/chocolate and roasted malts with a wood like quality. Almost like this was aged in sherry casks. Taste is complex; dark roasted coffee and bittersweet chocolate malt with a smooth alcohol laced bite, also had some Sambuca like qualities, licorice and nut. This was an interesting stout with a flavor like nothing Iíve tried before. Not sure if I would buy it again, but something everyone should try at least once.

průbka z butelki i na pewno więcej wypić byłoby trudno. w aromacie paloność, czekolada i alkohol kojarzący się z brandy. zaskakująco wodniste, sojowe, alkoholowość na bardzo wysokim poziomie, ale to wiadomo z etykiety. warto sprůbować

Sampel butelki. Kolor czarny bez piany. Zapach palonosci i alkoholu. Zadziwiająco gładkie i mało spirytusowe jak na abv. Czuć tam stouta, palone slody, kakao. Niezle.

UPDATED: APR 17, 2016 Bez piany, czarne, nieprzejrzyste. Aromat stoutowy z zaznaczonym sosem sojowym, sisem teryaki i melasa. W smaku lekka slodycz, ciemne slody, sos sojowy. Mega geste w idczuciu. Jest alkohol, ale calkiem znosny.

Bottle share at glapivmag. Deep brown to black. Sweet malty aroma with lot of Alco. Taste is similar nutty, malty but Alco is way too strong.

Pours very dark brown. Strong alcohol in aroma, burns your nose. Also some caramel and raisin. Taste is strong, sharp. Little bit sourish, pepper, sugar, burned bread. Sticks in your lips, after reveals strong alcohol and stays pungent. Nice liquid to try!

Swaroga (1955) - Brussels, BELGIUM - MAR 20, 2016
Concentrated to the bone, cloying sweet with burned coal and alcohol bitterness and also some coffee like acidity. Itís only possible to sip it very slowly cause itís almost burning with alcohol and packed thickness. After a while itís not even enjoyable anymore. Still a good companion with a cigar or a pipe. I also get some soy sauce notes that arenít delicious.
