JorisPPattyn (9472) - Ursel, BELGIUM - DEC 26, 2003
Very dark colour, nearly black; dark greige-brown head, fast dissipating. Very (dark)bready, chocolate & varnish nose. Bread aroma gets more burnt - Maillard? Dry, bitterish taste. Grainy flavours like specific dark grains, roaste barley or oats; slight acidic finish included. Bit smoked too. Mouthfeel bit thinnish, unlike all the grainy flavours would suggest. Good dark bottom-fermenting beer. 'Starkol' is Scandinavian perception. Big thanks to Bjorn & Anders for the Jämtlands choice.

Erzengel (7758) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - DEC 2, 2013
UPDATED: DEC 13, 2013 Hab’ das Bier im "Akkurat" in Stockholm getrunken. Ein sehr schön vollmundiges Bier mit schönen Röstmalzaromen. Ist schon fast etwas dickflüssig, der Schaum leicht braun und lange haltbar. Der Abgang ist langanhaltend und schön Röstmalz-schokoladig.
Test vom 7.10.2007, Gebinde: Fass Noten: 12,14,14,14,-,14 - 13,78

Ughsmash (7508) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 3, 2007
Bottle, BB 05/07, thanks to lagomswedish! Poured a clear, deep garnet with about an inch of creamy deep beige head. Aroma was of sweeter chocolates and darker fruits with an interesting herbal grainy twist to it. More chocolate than the nose.. lightly-roasted and rather tasty.. back-end had lots of sweet, tacky notes that became a bit cloying.. sticky, super-sweet chocolate finish. Did I mention that this was sweet? OK feel, but came across as powerfully OK.

larsga (7293) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUL 8, 2007
Small beige lasting head. Dark reddish brown ale. Very little aroma; faint maltiness. Sweetish-dry peppery roasted malt taste with fantastic clarity. Light mouthfeel. Dry, burnt aftertaste, slightly dusty. Very nice. An excellent lager. (0.25l draft at Akkurat.)
