4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle, shared with Bergen Beer Geek Tasting Crew. After buying this at Ølbutikken, Copenhagen, it feels really good to have Meilby bring it to the table, cheers man! :-) Pours a pitch black body with a huge beige creamy head. Sooo nice. Nose is almonds, biscuits, licorice, leather, coffee and hints of nuts and caramelized...caramel? :-P In any case, this is quite lovely. Taste is coffee, caramel, nuts, hints of buttery biscuits and ashes. Very nice. High carbonation, full body. A highly pleasant Italian-themed beer very far from most Italian crafts.

Pour is dark and thin head. Aroma of bread, nuts and fruit. Flavor is a bitter sweet nuttiness, sweet on the finish. Very smooth and drinkable. A style of its own. Interesting and worth tasting.

Aroma is very rich chocolate, mocha, espresso, fig and deep sweet malts. The taste is similar ;very very sweet and almost chewy mouthfeel that finishes with light bitterness. For 11.5% this is pretty smooth. Far too sweet for my liking. Appearance is a dark body with a beige head that retains fairly well.

Richly flavored and decadent (though not as much so as the imperial version). Smooth amaretto and coffee with a huge malt nose and flavor. Enjoyed this one!

This rich black beer has an amazing sweet coffee ice cream aroma. It has flavors if coffee and chocolate. It starts of really mild and develops into a more complex flavor.

Shared bottle on May 17th. Pours opaque with a fluffy tan two finger head. Nose reminds me of the Biscotti spread that your spread on sweet crackers. Chocolate, almonds and some hints of coffee and dark fruits. The taste is amazing,following the nose and having a viscous mouth feel. Hope that I can find this again!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Huge gusher that brings back memories of PHAT porter. Black with a huge frothy dirty light brown head. Roasted malt, coffee, vanilla, light fruity, dates, . Medium body, oily/sticky texture, medium carbonation, medium sweet with some malty bitterness. Perhaps a bit syrupy, but I like it ok.
