Föroya Bjór Black Sheep premium dark lager is an excellent beer with a great taste, brewed by Föroya Bjór, a Faroese family owned brewery founded in 1888. The Black Sheep from Föroya Bjór is a beer of th very best quality. The islanders may have a fishy economy but the Faroese beer is second to none. The brewery has always had a ram in its logo.

TheCametron (2332) - CZECH REPUBLIC - JUN 9, 2016
A bottle from Martin’s fairwell shindig. Didn’t make the journey with him to Berlin. Crumbs from the captains table. A clear Brown beer with a short White-ish head. A bit of burnt malt, caramel to it but ultimately light on flavour crystals. Not so bad.

Cimbasso (692) - - MAY 20, 2016
Sampled from a bottle at the Copenhagen Beer Festival. Chestnut colour with a tan head. Sweetish aroma, and a taste dominated by caramel and burnt toffee. Some hints of blackcurrant. Good bittering hops giving a good, long finish. A little sweet, but quite drinkable.

gegwilson (3033) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - APR 20, 2016
Bottle from a Vínbúdin in Reykjavik. Pours mahogany with a thin cream head. Fusty metallic malt aroma. The taste is quite sweet with treacle, tar, liquorice. There’s something a bit cloying about it. Something of a chore.

Nekronos (4039) - Xalapa, MEXICO - FEB 20, 2016
Qute strong and very thick. Well brewed and nice foam. Easy to enjoy and has to be careful with it.

BlackHaddock (6038) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - JAN 21, 2016
330ml bottle in my hotel room: Berlin 21st Jan 2016. Bought from the fantastic Ambrosetti beer shop. Bright Amber body with a wispy head. Malty, sweet and alcoholic in nature. Warming and plaesing with enough going on in the mouth to keep me interested. I liked it.

(2) Not worth trying. If you are trying to make your way around the world in beer - then the F islands is a good go - or need to go.

Amber pour with small off white head. Hints of fruit on the nose. Flavor is malty, with granny smith apple and other tart fruit. Little to no carbonation. Finish is crisp. Thanks to my folks for the bottle.
