500ml bottle - thanks Kairi!
Sweet and roasty, but pretty bland, toasted marshmallows. Bourbon biscuits. Nice black, tan head. Pretty bland taste too. Way too much sugar here, not enough malt. Sweet slick paalte. This has just been over alcoholised by sugar, it has no more to offer in the taste department than a 4% stout. Chocolate, because of the sweetness, tastes cheap. Anna goes as far to call it fake chocolate.

kerenmk (2918) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - JAN 27, 2015
Draught at Fermentoren, Copenhagen, 14.1.2015. Black. Deep, vinous and a little spicy aroma, a little sweet taste, raisins, then bitter. Silky and smooth, no carbonation, long, sweet finish.

lobs_ols (276) - LATVIA - JAN 8, 2015
UPDATED: JAN 23, 2015 Black, strong beige head. Cocoa, toffee and roastiness on the nose, hints of vanilla. Medium thick body, bittersweet with roasty, chocolatey notes lingering all around. Finishes quite bitter and very warming. Nice.

Rune (8832) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JAN 4, 2015
500ml bottle, bryg nr. 766, vintage 2013, trade with Skinnyviking. Stored in my cellar for more than a year. Motor oily pour revealing a solid rocky, light brown head, crocheted lacing to the glass, and a jet black coloured body. Nicely roasted dark malty nose. Mixed taste character of dark chocolate, dark vanilla and subdued candy sweetness, nicely offset by a roasted bitter ending. Well bodied. Enjoying sipper on a dark Saturday eve (Tromsø 03.01.2015).

Vignale (2340) - Malmö, SWEDEN - DEC 25, 2014
Flaska från SB, lokalproducerad julöl 2013. En mäktig men ganska söt IS. Rejäla stora välrostade och sött fruktiga smaker. Torkad mörk frukt, choklad fudge, kaffe, mörk choklad, lite mörk rom. Trevlig och fullödig, kanske aningen söt men absolut en bra IS.
