Backlog rating. Bottle at CBC Clerkenwell, Gunnar tasting. Thanks to Gunnar himself for this one! It pours a deep dark brown color with a small beige head. Aroma is roasty, with notes of toasted bread, grains, coffee beans, cocoa powder, dark fruits. Taste is roasty and mildly sweet, with notes of espresso, dark chocolate, burnt wood, dates. Lightly boozy bitter finish. Medium to full bodied with good carbonation. Overall, liked this one

Mmmmmmmm. Virkelig god Stout. Smaker sjokolade, kaffe, litt frukt. Denne blir min favoritt blant norske øl.

Pours satanic black with almost no head (ment to?) Aroma of licorice, oak and coffee. Taste is coffee, oak, molasses, licorice and some chocolate. Heavy but stil very smooth, some months cellaring and this will be a dream. Still think its very little carbonation in it thou, maybe it will come by time and was fresh in the shop Aroma is chocolate, oak, licorice. Medium bodied, bitter roast finish. Taste is coffee, oak, burnt sugar, hints of licorice and chocolate. A touch harsh.

This one is best AFTER 2015, which you absolutely taste! It's already a great tasting beer. Monday (Saturday today) is the day I buy 4-5 bottles of this beer for storage. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Flaske 750ml delt hjemme med Håvard 16 Sep 14. Svart. Ved høy kvelling kan en framprovosere et raskt dalende mokkafarget skum som flater helt ut. Forsiktig lakrisaroma. Smaken balansert. Lakris & kaffe. Tørr. Litt lite variasjon. Alkoholen godt kamuflert - men jeg hadde vel forventet mer innhold.

ABS (773) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - SEP 14, 2014
Bottle from Vinmonopolet Sørlandssenteret. Makes no sound when opened. Close to zero carbonation. Heavy alcohol nose. Roasted coffee and malt. Warming. Oily body. Roasted bitterness. Bitter chocolate, roasted coffee and malt, lots of alcohol flavour. Too low on carbonation and way to alcohol heavy in my opinion.

gyllenbock (6480) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - SEP 7, 2014
Sample at Bergen Ølfestival 2014. Black with a minimal tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, licorice, bitter chocolate and some dried dark fruit. Not that much carbonation and with a thick oily mouthfeel. Really nice and vinous, a perfect beer to sip.

Poured from a 2011 vintage, 25 cl bottle. Batch 100, thanks Gunnar! Aroma is sweet with moderately strong chocolate notes and medium light roast with faint smoke. Some tobacco and leather notes. Cherry, plum and prune esters. Pours black with some dark brown highlights on the edges. Small, faint, dark tan head recedes quickly to the edges. Light lacing and moderately long legs. Flavor is fairly sweet with a lot of dark chocolate. Light roast with a medium light smoke note. Faint peat smoke. Medium bitterness and a faint alcohol spice. Medium light tobacco and leather. Light anise with faint plum and prune. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with low carbonation. Low astringency and medium low alcohol warmth. Overall, a really nice, enjoyable stout with some really nice character. Rather dry finish and a touch watery than I would expect for a stout this size. Nice, complimentary smoke and roast notes with good tobacco and leather character. Nice complexity without any need for barrels.
