Nische (675) - Saltsjö-Boo, SWEDEN - JUN 28, 2014
Opaque dark brown beer with a tidy tan head. Palate is soft, viscous and a little dry. Sweetish dark malt with rich coffee and a touch of alcohol spice. Light brandy liqueur before the smooth dry finish.

SimonTja (246) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUN 27, 2014
Deeply roasted, vanilla, dark fruit. Very very roasted with a bit of booze, very oaky, but not very well combined. A lot of flavours, but I think a few years of aging would improve it, very powerful roastiness, bitterness, coffee, chocolate, dark fruits and oak. Great beer.

JulienHuxley (3015) - Hilversum, NETHERLANDS - MAY 22, 2014
Bottle, many thanks to Kermis for helping me slay this H&V tick. Opaque black pour with rich creamy brown foam. Aroma of whisky, really rich chocolaty aromas, a bit smoky, anise aromas, roasty. Taste is rich, tons of chocolate, nice spirit flavors. Palate is chewy, sweet but with good carbonation to cut through. Super tasty.

tom10101 (2716) - Quebec, CANADA - MAY 22, 2014
Bottle (330 ml). #635. Shared by JulienHuxley, thanks! Pitch black with a medium beige head and heavy lacing. Aroma is of fudge along with vanilla, roasted malt, toffee, light fruity notes, whisky, light smoke and hints of alcohol. Taste is moderately sweet and again quite fudge forward along vanilla, whisky, roasted malt, toffee, light fruits (less than aroma) with a touch of smoke and a light warming finish. Full body. Moderate carbonation. Velvety mouthfeel. Very complex and quite enjoyable. One of my favorite from the Hel & Verdoemenis series. Balance is pretty good and alcohol is well hidden for 13% abv. Delicious.

Draft at Mikkeller & Friends. Inky black pour, opaque, slight tan head. Aroma is bitter chocolate, port, whiskey, burnt caramel, smoke, cherries. Taste is bitter chocolate, oak, dark honey, smoke, booze, and hop bitterness. Thick mouthfeel. Alcohol is slightly too noticeable for my taste.

Inbreak (2033) - Loddefjord, NORWAY - APR 3, 2014
03.04.2014, 0,33l bottle (#300) @ home:
Nice light brown dense creamy longlasting head. Aroma is slightly rich, dark malts, cognac, oak, licorice, dark sugar, dark chocolate, vanilla, burnt caramel, dark fruits, cocoa nibs. Taste is rich and very balanced, dark malts, oak, cognac, dark chocolate pudding, licorice, vanilla, caramel, dark sugar, cocoa nibs, coffee, old rope. Medium bitterness, very smooth slightly dry and syrupy mouthfeel. Very nice, but I think I remeber the regular one as much better.

Nidaros (40) - NORWAY - MAR 31, 2014
Bottle at home, nr0862 Pours pitch black with a dense tanned head. Aroma of figs, prunes, some oak, rounded burnt notes and some alcohol. Tastes of dried dark fruits, massive taste of sweet dark malts, some oak. Medium bitterness and a silky smooth aftertaste of dried fruits and oak. Only thing holding this beer back from max score is that I would have liked to see a bit more body and a little less carbonation. A recomended brew if you can get hold of it.
