yngwie (14008) - Kristiansand, - SEP 22, 2012
On tap at HaandFestival 2012. A very good looking beer, black in color and with a dark tan head of moderate size. The aroma is on the roasted side, with chocolate, coffee, some alcohol hints, dried fruits like figs and prunes, and a vanilla-ish, bourbon-like scent. Yummi! The flavor is in the same league, sweet and roasted, with coffee and chocolate, a nice but subtle bitterness, some resin and dried fruits. It’s full-bodied, warming and soft on the palate, with a lasting finish. Certainly one of the best beers at the festival, wish I could have more of this. 120504

330ml bottle @Cimmeria, Oviedo. 10-12-2014.
Bottled: 09-07-2013.
In short: "liquor" stout.
Pours black with little tan head, poor lacing. Wood, liquor, coffee, chocolate, subtle smoky aromas. Medium body, flat carbonation, oily texture. Taste is liquor, coffee, some sweet alcohol, some chocolate, lingering sweet and warm notes. Quite enjoyable.

Flavor is dried fruit, chewy malt, chocolate, smoke, vanilla, leathery notes, caramel, wood, bourbon. Warm booze in the finish. Lingering booze and dried fruit. Thick mouthfeel. Surprisingly easy to drink for what it is, a big istout.

maekchu (2283) - Hirakata, JAPAN - NOV 30, 2014
Bottle. Thanks to mike2da. Big dark fruit nose, a little red wine, dark sugar, and alc. fumes. Dark translucent brown. Swirling array of tangy plums and gentle prunes, mild chocolate, and decent bittering in back end. Medium body. Wow! All rich and sustained flavors. Thin for an imperial, but how tasty!

Fin (7671) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 7, 2014
Bottle picked up from De Molen Brewery, Bodegraven, Netherlands, shared with dad, consumed at home Friday 7th November 2014 Pitch black beer, mmhh... scrub that actually in the light I can see that I am being deceived in fact its more deep dark brown and certainly a bit thinner than some we’ve had tonight. Devoid of a head, looking a little washed out and flat, it has a slightly thick oily mouthfeel. Some smokiness in mouth, its a little dark fruity number but one that sadly disappoints, quite good but not great. A6 A3 T7 P3 Ov14 3.3

Marduk (2968) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - OCT 28, 2014
330ml bottle (shared by FatPhil, thanks). Pitch black color. Tiny to almost no head. Raisins, malty, touch of wood, very faint notes of alcohol, melass in aroma. Roast, treacle, dark fruits, very faint hint of whisky in taste. So full body. Delicate balance. Absolutely fantastic. Orgasmatron!

330ml bottle (ALEhouse, Riga) (8:4:8:4:16-=4.0-)
Lovely soft bourbony aroma, gently sweet, hint of butter, dense fruitcake, absolutely delicious. Glassy black, doesn’t keep a head, but wouldn’t expect it to. Full smooth palate, soft and sweet, but not sticky. Warming, but not hot. Roast is deep, but not astringent at all. Sweet, but not sugary, cakey, fruity, a little bit of brandy cream too. Tingle on the tongue from gentle carbonation, and lovely burntness and bitterness. Finish is a little bit dusty from the burnt roast, has the bourbon butteriness. Probably the best beer I’ve ever had that hasn’t made me say "wow". It’s very solid in all regards, impossibly to find fault with it. 11% used very well, has the kind of warmth that I really want right now, but no burn at all. Not sure I get any smokiness anywhere, per se. Wanted to make this last as long as possible.
