Lilja (1585) - Malmö, SWEDEN - SEP 1, 2013
Smak och doft av humle, malt, choklad med fruktiga och blommiga toner. Lättsam, något syrlig med en snäll beska.

beer_est_deus (646) - örebro, SWEDEN - NOV 2, 2012
Lagrad i 2år. Svart med brunt litet skum som försvinner snabbt. Doft: Kaffe, kakao, alkohol, katrinplommon, skånsk pepparkaka och torkad frukt. Smak: Metall, kaffe, kakao och något mysko typ bränt kött. Tunn smak och kropp, dock har doften iaf förbättrats med lagringen.

Marsiblursi (3001) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - MAR 5, 2012
(Bottle) Pours near black with a light brown head. The aroma holds suede, coffee, medicine, dark chocolate, berries, black currant and roasted barely. The flavour holds some bitterness. Notes of menthol, light smoke, salt liquorice, chocolate, coffee, gunpowder and some berries. The mouthfeel is light oily and smooth with a light carbonation. Sal ammoniac finish. Medium bodied.

Vignale (2035) - Malmö, SWEDEN - AUG 24, 2011
En totalsågat ale vilket känns lite spännande. Ser åtminstone ut som en IS med medelhögt skum. Lite märklig doft av unket sädesupplag och choklad. Smaken maltig åt chokladhållet, inte direkt fyllig utan snarare lätt syrlig. Nya Zealändska Riwaka och Herculeshumle ger lätt beska och blommiga och fruktiga nyanser. Kanske inte ska jämföras med eller kallas IS men en fin chokladstout med lite annorlunda karaktär. Gott så!

gyllenbock (4570) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUL 30, 2011
Bottle. Black with a small tan head. Watery and not good at all. Light notes of roasted malt, coffee and something strange that I could not put my finger on.

Clyx (208) - SWEDEN - JUL 24, 2011
Aroma: Chocolate, roasty, like very burnt. Taste: Chocolate, Coffe and a bizarr acidity that doesn’t taste right. Mouthfeel: That acidity makes your mouth feel bad...

fiulijn (14386) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 17, 2011
Black color; small head. Aroma of roasted malt, glue, cookies, smoke, vanilla, wood, light phenols... Interesting. The body is thinner than expected; there is a quite good roasted malt flavor, quite dry, but also a note of liquorice and phenol, and oxidization. The final is a bit metallic. Good but somehow strange.

Botella. Clear black colour, medium beige head. Roasty malty aroma with liqourice and chocolate. Ok mouthfeel. Flavour has roasted malt, with average chocolate and liqourice. Rather short finish.
