UPDATED: NOV 8, 2014 330ml bottle (Tolly, Tartu) (6:5:7:4:14=3.6)
Black, small tan head, just great! Pleasant roasty aroma, some hops too, but roasty primarily. Lovely full palate Some nice almost marmitey roast. Nice rich roast, definitely a hoppy dark beer rather than a dark hoppy beer. Finish has bitter deep roast, again, almost marmitey. Alcohol completely covered. Finish has a slight bitter tingle from both burntness and hops. Great stout.
Keg (Pudel, Tallinn) (6+:4+:6-:3:12=3.1+)
Bucketloads of floral honey in the aroma, some sweet mashiness too. Took forever to pour, was a frothy fizzfest. But it kept its tan head atop the jet black body. Very mashy taste, raw, husky and nutty. If this was an unfiltered lager I’d be overjoyed by this level of graininess, but it’s out of place here. Some strange orange juice in the taste and finish. Palate was very fizzy, needed to swirl it a lot before it was vaguely drinkable. Finish does leave me with some more of the honey. Shame, that was a nice aspect, the rest of the beer spoilt it.

Foffern (1304) - Bodø, NORWAY - SEP 30, 2014
Bottle at home. The colour is black with a medium, light brown head. Has a sweet and roasted aroma with chocolate, coffee, pine, grapefruit and fruity hops in the background. The flavour is fruity at first with lots of tropical fruits, pine and grapefruit, and then fades into roasted malt and tones of coffee beans. Has a slick and rich mouth feel, and a medium bitterness. A well-balanced, a bit sweet and nice BIPA. Solid bitterness as well.

Keg at BrewDog, Stockholm. Very dark brown, small head. The aroma contains licorice, menthe and licorice. Mid sweet with medium-full body and rounded mouthfeel. Caramel, licorice, grapefruit and pears. Really bitter finish.

Dark brown color. Big hoppy nose with dark fruit, roasted malt, very full body. Smooth and rich. Nice roster malt character. Alcohol well hidden.
