nimbleprop (6342) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - FEB 16, 2015
750ml bottle pours a very oily, opaque black with some clumpy, spitty, beige head. Nose has some fusel notes at first, rubbery, a little boozy, a little cakey, some licorice, some molasses, some heavy char. Flavor malt, some toast, a little chocolate cereal, some boozy, some cleaning fluid, some liquid smoke. Oily finish. Aged too much? Not enough?

Eimhjellen64 (8) - Kvernaland, NORWAY - FEB 16, 2015 does not count
This is a very complex beer with a lot of taste. I think it will get better after storing for some years. ( I have 4 more bottles in my collection) I look forward to taste it in the future.
