heavy (2127) - Split, CROATIA - AUG 16, 2012
21/07 RBESG Grand Tasting, 0.33 l bottle. It poured pitch black body with smaller brownish head. Nice strong coffee, licorice and alcoholic aroma. Flavor was sweet, slightly bitter and sour, with roasted malts dominating, e.g. coffee, chocolate, licorice. Alcohol wasn’t too hidden, it was sharp, but extremely heavy body was quite successful in smoothing it. Long finish, of course, with lot of chocolate, caramel, licorice and alcohol. I liked this one very much, although it would certainly be much better aged. What a delicacy would it be!

hopscotch (9037) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - AUG 6, 2012
Bottle... This beer rocks!... Coal black ale with a mid-sized, creamy, well-tanned head that never dissipates. The nose presents luxuriant notes of fudge, espresso, chocolate creme and a gentle note of cinnamon flanked by a trace of singed marshmallow. Full-bodied and velvety with soft carbonation. The flavor displays great balance amongst all its decadence - dark chocolate and espresso really stand out. More chocolate creme and suggestions of pouch tobacco intermingled with singed marshmallow. Silky smooth with no rough edges. Finishes mildly bitter, scorched and a touch minerally. Big-time kudos go out to Plovmand for shipping this world class brew across the pond!
