hackobock (2963) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - APR 29, 2016
April 29, 2016. Bottle, bottled January 25, 2016.
Very dark brown, almost black with a large off-white head leaving a nice lacing on the glass. Aroma is roasted malts with licorice, coffee, toffee, hints of soy and dark chocolate, some earthy and herbal hop notes. Taste is light sweet, medium hoppy and roasted bitter and some salty notes. Finish is quite bitter, roasted and salty with notes of soy, licorice, ash, chalk, hints of sweet toffee. Medium bodied, soft to average carbonation.
Good, a bit sharp finish ant too bitter and slightly salty finish though.

Bottled, from Systembolaget. Near black, mid sized creamy beige head. Salty leather and licorice up front. Mid dry with medium-full body and rounded, solid mouthfeel. Citrusy licorice, some earth and chocolate. Really bitter finish.

Turtles (1467) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - APR 27, 2016
341ml bottle from Systembolaget, ABV 6.3%. Black with a creamy tanned head that leaves rich lacing around the glass. Wow feeling from the aroma, roasted barley, coffee, nuts, licorice and earthy notes. Dry and chalky mouthfeel, mildly carbonated. Roasted dry malty taste chocolate and cocoa up front, the taste does not reach the same depth as the aroma, almost burnt taste with a mild floral bitterness in the background.

Bendrixian (1438) - Canadiana, Ontario, CANADA - APR 24, 2016
Bottle. Pitch black pour with a mocha coffee and hint of chocolate aroma. Big, dry and has a great flavour profile that is almost resinous in the mid palate but finishes toasty bitter and dry. Very good stuff.

fhoublon (404) - Lachine, Quebec, CANADA - APR 22, 2016
Dégustée (verre en fût) directement au Pub DDC de St-Jérôme le 24 janvier 2015, au coût de $4.75. Bière noire opaque. Col beige foncé crémeux, mince et éphémère. Très peu effervescente. Odeur de café prononcée. Saveur de café torréfié très marquée, avec une pointe de chocolat noir en finale. Se tient bien, a beaucoup de corps, texture un peu crémeuse/onctueuse. Pas trop forte, assez sucrée, assez amère en finale. Très bonne à part peut-être le côté brûlé un peu trop marqué. Doit être délicieuse avec un dessert au chocolat noir.

YigSvartka (269) - Manitoba, CANADA - APR 17, 2016
Opaque black with a nearly non existent beige head. Full bodied and creamy. Robust dark coffee and chocolate forward accompanied with mild notes of nuts, vanilla, and hops. Dry intensive finish. Quite nice, but certainly not a favourite of dieu.
