Skinnyviking's rating

Skinnyviking (8073) - Copenhagen, - NOV 17, 2012
Bottle. High creamy lasting and good looking light brown head. Oh yes, black it is indeed. Smooth cfreamy and pleasant aroma of choccolate and vanilla. Impressive. Choccolate dominated creamy sweet but not too sweet roasted mallt flavor with just a weak but nice hops bitternes. Low carbonation. Long sweet finish. Very well balanced and solid body with no sign in smell or taste of alcohol. Maybe not too inventive but indeed very good and addictive. Sorry mates your label is not snobbish enough, otherwise your ratings would get the characters this beer deserves.

Tap. Pours pitch black. Nose of wood and vanilla. Nice light coffee and vanilla flavor, slightly low carbonation. This one is a bit less flavorful than usual, might be on a new cask. Seriously good stout though.

Rehkopff (39) - Odense, DENMARK - AUG 18, 2015
Kulsort, velduftende og smagfuld. En rigtig fin Stout med behersket bitterhed. Afbalanceret alkohol gør at øllen kam drikkes alene. En rigtig god øl! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

zenkis (706) - Ogre, LATVIA - MAY 5, 2015
this one was like complete mess- in aroma some cereals with herbs, grass; tasteless, and maybe with some yeast defects cause aroma and taste was unpleasant, thin body, darkest malts dominant.

Vells (1147) - Rīga, LATVIA, LATVIA - MAY 4, 2015
Lovely subtle IMP stout. Decent roastiness in background, some cocoa, vanilla, smooth. Moderate sweet with moderate to light bitterness. Problem with this one - feels bit empty - either ABV is too high to call it simple stout, either body is too thin to call it IMP

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 (3483) - 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 (448) - 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 (9661) - 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).

thomat (2822) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - DEC 26, 2014
Very dark brown with a thick brown head. Malty and roasted tones. Malt, fruit, coffee, chocolate and hops. Medium to full body with nice bitter finish.
