4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
2011 vintage. 12oz bottle into a tulip.
Pours a thick opaque black like used motor oil. Really no head at all and just a thin ring around the top of the beer.
Aroma of is rich coffee and chocolate like a cappuccino. Some roasted character along with caramel and toffee. Also a touch of vanilla; a very inviting aroma.
The flavor is even better. Coffee and caramel up front along with a hint of whipped cream and brown sugar. Some espresso roast and bitterness compliments the sweetness perfectly. Some vanilla and maple syrup comes in but everything leads to a moderately dry, coffee-like finish. Mouthfeel is full and slick but it is never too sweet.
Overall, an absolutely world-class beer. So full of flavor and extremely drinkable. I really wish I would have gotten more than just a four pack and I need to try to get some more of this while I can.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
파운더스 브루어리-브렉& 스타우트 8.3% ABV 베이직하게 이것저것 균형잡고 튀어나오면서 도수때문에 알콜기가 높이 치솟는 맥주. 널뛰기 하다 생각이상으로 높이 날아올라 머릿속에 피가 몰리고 빠져나가는듯,
레이트비어 백점인데, 뭐랄까 정전같은 레시피의 맥주라 그런것 같다. 벨런스에 무게를 둔다면 그렇겠으나 스타일이라면? 그런식으로 보면 노스코스트 라스푸틴도 비슷한 계열. 대중레벨에선 벨런스에 박수, 오타쿠레벨에 개성에 박수, 레이트 비어의 이중잣대?
하긴 최상 수공예 오타쿠 계열은 이런 벨런스 다잡으면서 새로운 해석을 던지는 것같기도 하다. 이방인으로선 구하기도 힘든 하늘의 별따기 같은 맥주들. 이정도로 감지덕지 하겠습니다

Flaska på norrlands, Uppsala. Doftar sött och lite rostade toner. Smak av kaffe, choklad, lite aska. Ganska runda smaker. God.

Bold and caramel hints with deep stoutness. Not much of an aroma but a bold look as well.

Pours black with a small white head. Nose is very much cocoa, chocolate and some coffee vanilla notes. Taste is chocolate, slight vanilla bitterness, coffee. Nothing super sexy jumps out but it’s a seriously well balanced beer. Never fails!!

Good brewery. Great style of beer. Wonderful execution. Lots and lots of coffee, chocolate and caramel in the malt but thick and creamy enough so as not to be overly sweet. Oily texture with a tan head that faded quickly from the bottle pour. Great one for winter evenings.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Malty stouty smell. Taste is a pretty standard roasty stout. You get some bitterness and sweetness, but it doesn’t scream coffee or chocolate to me. Full body with very slight foam.
