Rune (8065) - Tromsø, - DEC 29, 2012
Vintage 2011, 10 % abv, kept in the cellar after buying a 330ml bottle at Ølbutikken, Copenhagen over a year ago. Almost jet black body with a deep brownish shade. Dense, rocky fawn-coloured head reduced to a patchy layer. Smell of earth and dark chocolate malts added by a smooth hoppy twist. Fine blended taste of dark chocolate, burned sugar, grain and a drop of vanilla. Roasted bitter endnotes with a hint of coffeee far behind. Dry and soft on the swallow. Masked alcohol and surprisingly easy to drink. Enjoying (Tromsø, 28.12.2012).

4 pack of Jesus Juice. Pours thick and black like the handle on this lambic basket:

Yeah. Smells like tobacco spit and used motor oil. Skoal Classic Long Cut, to be exact. Oily and slick. Taste is semi dry and lightly bitter. Pretty well attenuated and unadulterated. Flavors of cigarette butts, tar, black patent malt. Heavily roasted. Slightly minty. Very, very well executed. This is a world class beer.

StoutHead (646) - DENMARK - SEP 20, 2014
Bottle. Pours pitch black with a small short-lived brown head. Aroma of roasted malt. Taste is of roasted malt, chocolate, dark fruits and a hint of vanilla and bourbon. Sweet and roasty. Low carbonation but I can’t figure out the body - it seems both full and a bit watery at the same time. Alcohol well-hidden. Well, not very complex or memorable - I’d call it solid and above average but not more than that.

Cervesa amb molt aroma a cafè i a cacau, també se li nota molt l’alcohol, recomanable prendre amb calma perquè evoluciona molt bé. Cerveza con mucho aroma a café y a cacao, también se le nota mucho el alcohol, recomendable tomar con calma porque evoluciona muy bien.

Date on bottle: 08/23/13Appearance: Black body with a creamy tan head that fades very quickly and leaves a ring and lacing on the glass.Aroma: Mild notes of coffee and a hint of chocolate. Pretty light in the aroma department even as the beer warms up.Taste: Very strong presence of wood and a strong coffee flavor. Notes of chocolate with a very notable espresso aftertaste. Rich and enjoyable!Palate: It is full bodied without being too thick or sticky. Nice finishing bitterness that complements the aftertaste very nicely. Overall: An excellent beer. I wouldn?t call it perfect but it?s to the point where I internally consider whether it is, which speaks volumes of the quality of this beer. I would say that the only detractor is the aroma, otherwise it is absolutely amazing. Even considering the slightly limited aroma I would buy it again in a heartbeat. Strongly recommend.

Pitch black, minimal sized tan head. Aroma is burned caramel. Some smokyness, caramel, coffee. Alcohol is barely noticeable. Extremely thick, full bodied. Oily texture. Flat carbonation. Long coffee finish. Very nice.

pkomar (47) - Poznan, POLAND - AUG 28, 2014
Chocolate, roasted aroma, could have been more intense, but it’s very nice. Dried fruits in the background. Pours black with small head, but leaving a very nice lacing. Amazing taste, sweet, full of chocolate and roasty aftertaste. Rather low bitterness and low carbonation. Alcohol warms the throat, but it’s the only sign of beer’s abv (10%). Apart from the aroma, it’s amazing.

SPDickerman (955) - Texas, USA - AUG 27, 2014
Pours pitch black with a large brown head. Smells of bourbon, chocolate, roast, hints of licorice. Taste is bourbon sweetness, hints of vanilla, chocolate, and licorice. Full-bodied with a velvety texture and smooth mouth-carbonation, Evil Twin Christmas Eve at a New York City Hotel Room finishes with a lingering bourbon licorice flavor.

Black with no head. Aroma of roast malt, smoke, chocolate, coffee, dark fruit. Taste is sweet with well balanced, bitter finish. Thick oily texture, low carbonation. Good beer.
