Hallstein (277) - Skogn, NORWAY - AUG 2, 2015
0,33 bottle (samplerpack) from systembolaget - Pours a dark brown with aromas of toasted bread, dark fruits and dark candy sugar. Mouthfeel is nice and well carbonated. Flavors of dark fruits and toasted bread. Not much else. Dry finish with a well balanced bitterness.

Vignale (2539) - Malmö, SWEDEN - JUL 30, 2015
Flaska från beernavigator något år gammal. Stort skum, mahognyfärgad. Mycket kolsyra och småbubblig munkänsla. Massor av malt, känns fortfarande aningen kantig, lite kärv malt, rejäl sötma, kraftig, rustik, en inte helt integrerad beska. Kan säkert vinna på lagring något år till. Men när temperaturen stiger och kolsyran lagt sig mjukar den till en bra rustik dubbel. Gott

TorbenJensen (515) - Valby, DENMARK - JUL 18, 2015
Light roasted malt tones and hard roasted malt rises from the glass and during its nice foam is a hazy and almost black promising dubbel waiting. A little licorice, a little coffee, a little bitter orange peel and plenty of sweet malt notes with great burnt character.

Gangstergafje (283) - Capelle aan den IJssel, NETHERLANDS - JUL 16, 2015
The beer is beautiful, an absolute lust for the eye. The beer has a thick frothy layer of foam on top of it. The bulk disappears to leave a thin drape of almond colored foam. Really nice. The color is a deep dark ruby red. Beautiful. The smell is really nice. It is very herbal. It has some sweet fruit aroma’s, also chestnut, and mint. The smell is really special. All aroma’s give the smell a heavy, herbal spicy appearance. The taste is unique as well. Very spicy and herbal. The beer has some alcohol taste, but it complements the spicy herbal deliciousness. This beer can be surely recommended.

Tap at muddy pig. 12oz pour in tulip. Dark brown almost black with smooth white head and good lacing. Subtle roasted aroma. Dark fruit and fig with some sour funk. Finish is quick. A bit tart. Raisin. Good complexity. Definitely a bit different and good.
