ABS (464) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUL 2, 2014
Bottle from Meny Grim. Very dark brown. Tiniest bit of slightly tan head - didn’t even cover the surface of the beer. Roasted coffee and plum nose. Bitter. Light body and carbonation. Roasted coffee, grass, seltzers and some herbal flavours. Keeping this under 6% ABV leaves something wanted in the flavour and body departement.

aleigator (220) - North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - JUN 29, 2014
Fluffy beige head, tar black color. Decent aromas of grassy hops and bitter chocolate - leaning into a Black-IPA direction. Lively carbonation puts a metallic character to earthy, roasted malts. There is also coffee and stawy hop bitterness detectable, which are pleasantly compounded. Slightly bitter, watery aftertaste, while carbonation is a little too high, adding a very present metallic note, which distracts from the overall chocolate and coffee taste. Smooth mouthfeel, a little too straight forward.

ShivanDragon (1579) - Leeuwarden, NETHERLANDS - JUN 27, 2014
schenkt als erg dun zwart bier met redelijke schuimige bruine kraag, welke snel afvlakt. aroma is wat beperkt van zoet, koffie, chocolade en wat moutcomplexiteit. eerste slok: sterke koffie, gebrande/geroosterde mouten, beetje dun in de mond qua textuur, afdronk wat droog. ik ben niet erg onder de indruk, wat te licht/dun en te beperkte complexiteit.

minutemat (1631) - Ford, Shropshire, ENGLAND - JUN 24, 2014
330ml bottle from Chez Sophie, Shrewsbury. Pours black with roasted malts aroma. Taste is predominantly roasted malts, tobacco and that familiar Senne bitterness with a dry finish. Nice but a bit too bitter for me.

sulawang (621) - British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 17, 2014
Visual: Pours jet brown/black with a massive lasting ultra-creamy head, sticky lacing, suspended sediment, lots of slow steady streams. Nose: light roasted sweet malts. mild cola (lvl-3)-pungency Attack: super crisp, very creamy mouthfeel, incoming malts Mid-palate: fizzy-tingly, (lvl-4)-sweetness, (MAIN) chocolate-coffee/mocha, caramel, roasted bitter malts, mild burnt wood, hints of vanilla Finish: light sourness, malty bittersweet + bitter hopped coffee finish. Summary: Quite straightforward with flavour and texture. It didn’t amaze me but made me glad that I tried it.

Pours a very dark brown with a lofty tan head. The smell is roasted malt, chocolate, mild fruit. The taste is fruity, fry, roasty ending with some bitterness. Light in body, a little watery with average carbonation.
