MrHangover (3068) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - FEB 28, 2015
Bottle @ THT February. Pours an inky black beer with a medium sized, tanned head on top that leaves great lacing and is nice and creamy. Aroma has a tonne of chocolate, but also some cofee and red fruits detected here. Nice, strong aroma with a boozy background. Flavor is medium bitter with loads of dark chocolatey sweetness in there. Great complexity, a bit low on carbonation and a silky, sticky mouthfeel. Nice one!

TET (1960) - FINLAND - FEB 15, 2015
Almost black beer with a medium and yellow-brown head. Aroma is great, liquirice and some salt liquirice, roasted coffee, hint of fresh strawberries. Taste is roasted, coffee, some bitterness with herbal notes, some liquirice, quite dry end. Medium+ bodied, low carbonation. Pleasant and smooth palate. The great beer, smooth and balanced.

SlackerMads (1964) - DENMARK - FEB 5, 2015
Bottle. Dark brown close to black with a medium sized diminishing tan head. Charcoal and some light fruit in the nose. Pretty mellow and soft; charcoal, cocoa, dark chocolate, dry flowers, light bark, light wax. No rough alcohol, soft carbonation. Full body, well balanced, not overdone. Good work.
