Bottle, bought @ Systembolaget, Hyltebruk. Thanks Lone
Deep brown to black with a big, creamy, beige head. Lovely laces. Aroma is roasted, dark chocolate. Highish carbonation, light and dry mouthfeel. Flavour has lots of liqourice and fairly sharp roasted malts. Lingering liqourice bitter finish with some saltiness. Okay.

Countbeer (5982) - Best of E-Town mit 2 Brauhausen, NETHERLANDS - OCT 9, 2011
Bottle: Best before 2009: Medium to a bit smaller and quick disappearing light brown tan head on top of a dark ruby black colored beer. Smell mostly honey and just hints of roasted malts and herbs and very very slight hints of liquorice and coffee. Taste honey, grains and malts, slight whiskey-ish notes, herbs, slight hint of liquorice and a nice pretty long lasting medium bitterness. Honey malt medium bitter herby aftertaste. Low (to medium) carbo, soft mouthfeel medium to a tad fuller body and a light watery body.

33cl Bottle. Appearance is dark brown/black color with fizzy, beige head. Aroma is sweet with some hints of roastiness. Taste is similar with dominant sweetness, slight roasted malts and vague hints of coffee. Palate is light- to medium-bodied, slick texture, average carbonation, and mild sweet finish.

Vignale (3202) - Malmö, SWEDEN - AUG 27, 2011
uinness bättre hälft. Stort brunt skum. Fyllig rostad smak av kaffe, choklad och soya. Bra balans mellan sötma, stramhet och fyllighet.

NordicV (1913) - Malmö, Sweden, SWEDEN - AUG 14, 2011
Ganska stor skillnad mot en Guinness på fat. En helt annan känsla i munnen. Inte den gräddiga känslan som fatvarianten (eller kolsyreburk) ger. Mörk, nästan svart i utseendet. Beige skum, ganska kraftigt. Doft av kaffe. Smak av kaffe och bitter choklad. Ganska skarp beska.

Niente male come stout, bevuta a secchiate quando si era più giovani, ora si può anche fare a meno...
