Peter_L (892) - SWEDEN - OCT 18, 2014
Flaska från SB. Svart vätska med kaffefärgat skum. Fruktiga dofter med en stor bit choklad. Definitivt röda bär i smaken. Mjuk och len. Långt avslut.

Ernest (6353) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - DEC 3, 2013
2013 bottle at Akkurat. Head is initially large, frothy/creamy, brown, fully lasting. Body is black. Aroma is moderately malty (roasted grain, dark chocolate, black bread), with notes of smoke, juniper, cassis, tar, leather, minerals. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, moderately bitter. Medium to full body, velvety texture, lively carbonation, lightly alcoholic. I’ve always been a bit more partial to Belgian and Scandinavian porters/stouts (compared to British/American ones), as they often have some spine-tingling aromas not commonly found elsewhere...and this is a great example of one that you’d never, ever find in the States (which seems to be content with the straightforward roast-choco-vanilla-hoppy odors for 90% of renditions). Extremely complex nose with just about everything I crave...smoke, minerals, berries...just jaw-dropping, really (and reminds me of Haand’s stouts/porters as well). Substantial tartness in the mouth, which I usually don’t like in dark beers, but here it’s as if berries were actually used, so it complements rather than clashes (see also Harvey’s Imperial, Moa Imperial, etc.). And it has just the right weight/body to be remarkably drinkable but still provide richness...no syrupy character whatsoever, and mild finishing sweetness, so it’s like a session beer with more character and presence. This is a tricky balancing act that is rare to find, but even if you turn off the nitpicky critical side of your brain, it’s very easy to love carelessly. Absolutely a 4+ rendition any way you slice it.

Vignale (2198) - Malmö, SWEDEN - AUG 31, 2013
Flaaska från SB. Årgång 2013, bäst före 2034. Riktigt mörkt brun, stor beige skumkrona. Doft av soja, kaffe, mörkt bröd. Alkoholvärme som avslöjar en lite tunn kropp för styrkan men inte stör nämnvärt. Rostade smaker, mörkt bröd, kaffe, soja, lite torkad frukt. Riktigt bra, men någon procent för stark. Kanske skulle ställas några år till.
