pilsnerrogge (2488) - Finspång, SWEDEN - OCT 1, 2006
[Draught @ Stockholm Beer Festival] Black with a large creamy head. Aroma is roasty with sweet liquorice, somewhat sourish. Creamy, really smooth flavour of well roasted coffee. The alcohol gives it some extra bite. Excellent!

Cybercat (3272) - Georgia, USA - DEC 3, 2011
Strong, smoky aroma has quite a fierce alcohol overtone, more what one would expect from a barleywine. Unfortunately, it tends to overwhelm the "stouty" parts of the otherwise quite inviting aroma. It pours a rich, warm sable with a thick and fluffy, if not too persistent, dark chocolaty-tan head. Flavor has roast quality coffee, unsweet chocolate and woody tones with a hint of licorice - alcohol bite is not nearly what the aroma suggests. Smooth, full-bodied texture has plenty of fizz and just a bit of an alcohol nip. Like stouts? Look for this one!

Svesse (6065) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - OCT 1, 2006
(Darught, Stockholm Beer Festival, 29 Sep) Pitch black colour with a firm, brown head. Roasted nose with full chocolate and coffee aromas, notes of smoke and tar. Roasted taste with chocolate, coffee, tobacco and tar. Citrussy, hoppy bitterness in the finish, along with even more chocolate. Full body, with creamy, velvety texture. Perfectly balanced and warming. I’m impressed, this is absolutely excellent.

rlgk (10262) - Göteborg/Jönköping, SWEDEN - OCT 1, 2006
(Stockholm Beer Festival 2006) Black with a wonderful huge creamy borwn head. Roasted chocolate and cocoa aroma, but also some milky notes. Milky, smooth flavor, coffee and tar notes, dry and with some alcohol coming through. Truly a great beer.

Draught. Black opaque colour, small brown head. Aroma is caramel, roasted malts, bready and chocolateish. Flavour is very smooth coffee and milk along with roasted malts, alcohol and caramel. Wellbalanced and totally kickass! One of my definitive favourites at the SBWF 2006.
