Bruine, bijna zwarte kleur met een goede kraag. Ruikt drop koffie, salmiak, kruiden. Smaakt zoetig, koffie, drop, kruiden. Tikkeltje bitter. Beetje dun.

Saeglopur (1577) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - FEB 17, 2016
330 ml bottle from my EU Local Swap 4/2015 sender MrHangover, thanks!
Black body, with a medium, dense, creamy, moderately lacing, beige head.
Aroma of ash, liquorice, coffee, dark chocolate, some caramel, slight dark fruits.
Taste follows this, with the ashy notes more in the background.
Medium, a bit creamy mouthfeel, with a moderate carbonation.
Finishes roasty-bitter, dry, wooden, moderate ashy, with coffee, liquorice, suble alcohol warmth.

Nice one, although nothing outstanding. Quite simple, more like a normal Stout, with some smokey notes. Alcohol is well hidden though, drinks pretty smooth for the ABV. Lacks some more body in my opinion.

33cl bottle, served in snifter glass. Poured black with a light brown two finger head. Aromas of espresso, chocolate, caramel, vanilla, licorice, dark fruits. Tastes pretty much a continuation of the aroma with notes of raisins, whole wheat bread, nuts. Heavy on the dark roasted malts, I love this dark magical brew. A full body, creamy and sticky finish. Overall a good strong stout.

Brune forte au malt noir et enrichie au porto rouge. Niveau abv de 9,1 %. Mon exemplaire était juste quelques jours avant sa date limite. Couleur noir marron très intense, à l’opacité quasi totale. Mousse brun clair, très crémeuse, stable à 5 mm. Superbe. Arômes de malt choco, chêne âgé, candi, amandes, noisettes. 1ère bouche souple à la superbe entame sur malt torréfié, café. Arrière-bouche maltée, avec le porto qui passe en douceur, très finement. 2ème sur un ensemble très fort malt/houblon/levure, mais parfaitement équilibré. Arrière-bouche complexe, dense, longue. 3ème avec un malt très précis, assez torréfié, mais aux très grandes saveurs. Arrière-bouche sans aucun défaut, et percutante. Longueur qui développe plusieurs aspects des 1ères bouches, avec beaucoup de goût. Jambes serrées, denses. Levure forte, un peu épicée, grande ligne. Alcool bien dosé, sans excès, il assume le travail sans rechigner. Finale très engagée, avec de nouvelles saveurs, et le porto en finesse. CONCLUSION : une bière qui est sous de nombreux angles plus proche d’une quadruple que d’un imperial stout, d’où sa mauvaise cote en style sur le site... mais ceci n’enlève rien à ses qualités intrinsèques, sur lesquelles il faut uniquement établir sa cote !!! Le style n’est qu’un très mince détail dans l’aventure … Vive le bloed broeder du 39 !!

Butilka: As black as ink, small off-white foamy layer; moderate roasty-ashy nose, shy traces of dried fruits and port in the background; solid dry bitter flavour with a delicate residual sweetness, medium bodied; dryish bitter lingering fruity and roasty finish. Nice brew, pretty complex…

ruigo (2034) - PORTUGAL - DEC 18, 2015
On tap. Deep opaque black colour with a nice tan head. Roasted malts, caramel, liquorice, chocolate and oak in the aroma. Soft carbonation and medium body. Taste is medium bitter with notes of dates and chocolate to balance. Overall, I was expecting more complexity and a full bodied beer but it is a good beer anyway.

Small yellowish-cream head over opaque redbrown beer. Very fruity nose, red berries. Sweet chocolate with (fruit)filling, bit of leather and tobacco. Both very bitter and sweet underlying. Portflavour is difficult to discern; flavours of walnut, husks, wood, roast - quite complex. Warming up, getting a bit vinous, at least. Near astrigent, wry and dry. Well-bodied, some alcohol. I’d never associated this with portwine, but it is different, and quite likeable, if a tad severe. Good choice of brewer.
