OleR (4802) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUN 6, 2012
Sampled from bottle @Ølbutikken. Body is black with dark brown edges. Low dense choco head. Ashy and well roasted dark malts to the nose. Full and complex with a big malt body. Smooth. Heavily roasted dark malts with a pretty nice smoke accent. Licorice notes and a just the right amount of bittering hops. Long roasty finish. Impressingly rounded and easy drinkable despite the bold flavors.

Tap (Pikkulintu, Helsinki)
Oooh, it’s a shame I was half way down the glass when I started writing notes, as the initial aroma and taste were way better than the later ones. Initially it’s a sweet burnt roast with just a touch of ham on the nose. The smoothness is palpable, and the burntness in the taste comes over as a little like greek coffee. Later, the retronasals come over as quite white winey (nt something I like) and with a fair bit of green apple, which again spoils it. The palate becomes way way too sticky, and I’m reticent to lick my lips to clean them, as I think my tongue is a carrier for chronic stickyitis. Some OK bitter bite, but it simply can’t compete with the carbohydrates and hydrocarbons. Alcohol is amateurishly hidden - It’s tenting like a teenager at a topless bar, but not actually coming in your face. Finish sticky, as I said earlier, and fairly pleasantly burnt. Does keep clear of dry chemical ashiness, fortunately. Didn’t really want to finish the glass, but I did because I’m a juovo.

From a bottle at home in Skövde. Black beer with a nice brown head. Smokey, licorice, fruity, earthy aroma with some metallic notes. Alcohol, licorice, earthy flavour. Strange mix of flavours.

Bottle. Pours black with a brown head. Notes of smoke, wood and coffee. Notes of roasted marshmallows, chocolate, thyme?, mint, and vanilla in taste. Creamy and smooth texture. The smoothness and spiciness reminds me of stouts from Struise.

Bottle from Olbutikken. Opaque black beer. Huge thick dark tan head. Palate is soft and a little dry. Soft dark malt, a whisper of coffee plus that weird emulsion paint vibe I sometimes get from BA beers. Unsweet dark chocolate. Soft mellow smoke - well integrated. Finishes soft with a dark malt linger (not bitter).

mjs (4780) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAY 18, 2012
(Draught at Pikkulintu, 20120518) The beer poured black. Its head was medium sized and light brown. Aroma had roasted malts, liquorice, smoke and hops. Palate was full bodied, warming and oily with medium carbonation. Flavours were roasted malts, smoke, smoked ham, alcohol, liquorice and bitterness. Aftertaste was smoky, quite burning and bitter. A confusing beer. It burnt like chilli and still tasted good.
