joeneugs (3108) - Livermore, California, USA - JAN 5, 2013
12 oz. bottle from Papsoe. It pours very thick and dark dark brown with a huge, fluffy dark brown head. The aroma… good god ya’ll… rich and decadent doesn’t begin to describe. Big time dark fruitiness with fig newton, dark chocolate, brown sugar, treacle, hints of cafe mocha. Very sweet and rich on the nose. The flavor is the same. Incredibly thick body, one of the thickest beers I can remember with notes of black cherry, wood, tobacco, molasses, fig, char, roast, etc. More roasted than the aroma suggested. Very sweet, but the intense roast balances it out just a tad. Wow. What a special brew. Not for the faint of heart.

Rune (7760) - Tromsø, NORWAY - DEC 27, 2012
330ml bottle ,batch 300, bought at Ølbutikken in Copenhagen in May this year. Oily pour revealing a huge, bubbly brownish head with good retention and fine lacework to the glass. Jet black body. Aroma of chocolate and cocoa. Gentle confectionery chocolate to the taste buds. The sweetness is downplayed by dark fruits and a vibe of roasted bitterness. Very smooth in the mouth. Excellent Yuletide sipper (Tromsø, 26.12.2012).

0,33 l bottle at Timo A’s. Black color. Sweet aroma of salty licorice, dark fruits. Firm roasty flavor with coffee, rum, warming alcohol. Woody spices (clove, smoke) in finish. Full body. Not so drinkable but still a nice sipper.

Bottle with many thanks to Ramy. Pours black with brown head. Nose is fantastic - lots of fudge brownie, smoked chocolate malt, smoked licorice, vanilla, cinnamon, gingerbread christmas cookie and mild spice. Taste follows suit albeit slightly less pronounced. Medium body. Well balanced.

Pitch black with a massive reddish brown head that lasts. Aroma of dark fruit with alcohol and malty notes. Taste is malty, roasty, complex with light acidity from cherries. The taste lingers in the mouth a while leaving rich fruity notes and a hint of bitterness. Nice beer.
