Et spesielt øl. God lukt, minner litt om vin på lukt. Mørkt fyldig øl med et hav av smaker og ettersmak. -dyrt.

Ughsmash (7091) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - APR 17, 2013
2011 vintage, nip bottle. Poured medium-deep reddish-brown with a short, but well-retained dusting of khaki head. The aroma picked up a whole lot of well-roasted coffee paired with vanilla, licorice, and a kiss of cherry skins.. molasses came through with warmth.. big, but well-balanced. The flavor found burnt and lightly sour coffee throughout, with a lovely impression that stuck on the finish.. some licorice, vanilla bean, and dark fruit also down there.. a little tangy on the finish, and I loved the final kick. Medium-plus bodied with low carbonation on the palate.. almost too burnt, but it held on. Nice one.

Foffern (1150) - Bodø, NORWAY - APR 11, 2013
Bottled 2012 and shared with (and courtesy of) ClubGonzo. Has a deep reddish brown to black colour with a small light beige head. Roasted aroma with coffee, dark chocolate, leather and oak. Delicious. Lots of roast in a complex and sweet flavour with lots of dark chocolate, port, coffee, rubber and alcohol. Rich and silky mouth feel, and has a medium to heavy bitterness. A fantasticly complex and powerful ale with a good bitter touch.

Holmen1 (2275) - Stavanger, NORWAY - JAN 29, 2013
Fra flaske på Cardinaltreff jan-13: takk til Sigmund som med sikker sans bygger opp kveldens program! Svartekunst er like deler magi og høy bryggekunst, denne smelter på tungen. Null skum, men so smooth, nydelig balansert og med enorm smaksfylde. 80 IBU merkes ikke. Dette er i klasse med internasjonale toppøl som f.eks Speedway Stout. O salighet, selv om der ikke finnes en gud er det godt at der finnes alkymister.

dEnk (3682) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - NOV 7, 2012
Bottle @ home. Aroma is deep laurel and liquorice, heavy roast and some wood, slight alcohol. Flavour is intense bitterness of roasted malt, liquorice, laurel, some woody notes, but mostly deep intense roasted malt, long lingering ashy bitterness. Nice.

Vaiz (3266) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - NOV 7, 2012
Bottle at home. Black pour, almost no head. Aroma of loads of licorice, black malts, some brandy, ash, bread and a hint of sigar. Flavor is immensly black bitter roasted, a bit thin and with low carbonation. Out of balance, but quite interesting. Lingering bitterness for ages.

Glouglouburp (5938) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 31, 2012
In short: A roasted and woody imperial stout that is surprisingly drinkable.
How: Bottle 250ml at Hanne På Høydens, Bergen Norway, 2011 vintage
The look: Black body topped by tiny beige ring of foam
In long: Nose is very roasted, burnt wood, coffee beans, sweet dark fruits, barrels. Taste is very roasted, chocolate cake icing, strong coffee character that is somewhere between fresh roasted coffee beans and cold cup of black coffee, dirty old wood, cocoa. With all that roast and wood astringency there is a rather low sweetness sensation and absolutely no alcohol presence. I’m not even sure that this is barrel aged (I can’t read this description) but I did get some wood/barrels in this beer, if it is the case then this is a well integrated barrel aging that really doesn’t overwhelmed the beer. This is a superior example of the style. I must be gifted with foreign languages because I only spent a few weeks in Norway and already I can tell that F.E.D.I.R.E.S.P. is an acronym and not an actual Norwegian word.

tfredvik (1031) - Oslo, NORWAY - AUG 26, 2012
Deep brown body, almost black, with a small brown head that leaves some lacing. Stunning aroma! Intense dark roasted, dark berries, black currant, dark sweet caramel, coffee and chocolate. Medium sweet taste with a heavy bitter finish. Lot’s of alcohol, but it sort of fits the intense aroma and intense flavours, although it makes this remarkable brew a little less drinkable. But I guess you don’t pick an imperial stout if you want a thirst quencher a hot summer day. Flavours are coffee, dark caramel and dark berries. Full body, oily texture and soft carbonation. I can’t wait for the next incarnation of Svartekunst.
[10 cl sample from a 2010(!) cask @ Grünerløkka mat- og mikrobryggfestival, Oslo]
