Bottle @ home. Aroma is big on roast and liquorice, flavour is the other way around, earthy herbal and fruity hops, medium bitterness, long lingering roast. Nice one.

Bottled. Sampled about 20cl I guess. The aroma has really nice chocolate and cacao, which I smelled even better while cleaning my sons clothes (1,5 year old) after he picked the glass from the table and poured half of it over himself. I wouldn’t advise this by the way. Ah, yeah there’s some piney hops as well. Black coloured beer with a big beige head. Bit gushing. The taste is moderate bitter, roasted, has chocolate, some pine. Bitter dry finish. Medium bodied. Good hoppy stout.

Svesse (5845) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - MAR 9, 2014
(Draught at Arendsnest, Amsterdam, 26 Feb 2014) Black colour with frothy, beige head. Malty, roasted nose with notes of coffee, dark chocolate, grapefruit and a touch of mint. Malty, roasted, hoppy taste with black coffee, dark chocolate, pine needles, grapefruit and a fairly dry finish with a generous piney bitterness. More than medium body, quite dry. Very tasty and solid black IPA. Lovely beer.

Countbeer (4031) - Best of E-Town mit ein Brauhaus, NETHERLANDS - FEB 24, 2014
Bottle: Served in a Duvel glass: Wow, pours blacker than most Imperial Stouts and has a darker foamy head as well. Looks very promising. Oily. Nice! Strong roast, coffee and chocolate aromas with hints of hops, herbs and plants. Flavours of roast, bitters, herbs, marzipan, marshmellow, chocolate, light floral tones, some coffee, some hops, tiny bit of something fruity light apricot and/or citrus and a sprinkle of yeast. Aftertaste is good roasty, chalky, some hay, bitter and floral tones. Low carbo, creamy oily close to silky mouthfeel, more medium to more fuller body and a oily thick creamy texture. Bit more hops and this would have been killer. Nevertheless a good beer! More like a stout! An Imperial Stout!

Douberd (1690) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - FEB 15, 2014
Bottle 330 ml at home, into a tulip glass. ABV 8% on the label. Pours a totally black beer with a huge creamy head, brown in colour. Very good retention, heavy lacing on the glass. Impressive. Aroma is fulll of milky chocolate, roasted malts, lots of hops, orange peel. Taste is also of chocolate, roasted malts, light citrus, orange peel, mandarines, freshly cut grass, some pepper. Nice bitterness coming from the roasted malts at first and then on the aftertaste from the hops. Medium body, low carbonation that works well. Nice dryness on the palate. Overall that was a great beer, full of taste and very refreshing, highly enjoyable. Great collaboration.

ShivanDragon (1253) - Leeuwarden, NETHERLANDS - FEB 2, 2014
bruin zwart met schuimige bruine kraag die overigens snel afvlakt. Het aroma is prima; chocolade, caramout, veel hop en laurierdrop. De smaken zijn redelijk zoet, zwaar hopbitter, chocolade, den en gras. gebrande en geroosterde mouten zijn ook aanwezig en ook weer de laurierdroppigheid komt stevig terug. lichte koffie. medium body, glad in de mond, normale co2., smaakvol, verbazend lekker

MichaelAwesome (2963) - Wanne-Eickel, GERMANY - JAN 28, 2014
Bottle shared with McTapps. A really classy one with loads of hops in the start and aroma. Some citrus in the middle combined with fruits. Sharp bitter end but still a quaffy one. Classy piwo.
