Tap at Whats brewing-14. Black, with aroma of bourbon, roasted malts, plums and liquorice. Taste is powerful, yet quite balanced. Loads of vanilla and mocha . Lingers for minutes. Love it - the best dark beer i’ve had from Lervig, ever.

yngwie (14146) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - NOV 13, 2014
On tap at Bergen Ølfestival. It pours a black body under a dense, two-finger sized brown head that lasts. Sweet mocha-ish aroma with lots of chocolate, some licorice and alcohol, as well as some molasses. It’s full-bodied, warming and with flavors of mocha and chocolate dominating. A nice bitterness balances the sweetness, and there’s also the same licorice and molasses known from the aroma. Lasting finish. A sipper, a glass may well last for an hour in this company. 140906

Tap at CBC 2014. Beer in the glass deep black, nice head. Heavy malty aroma with coffee notes. Starts intense malty, oily, notes of coffee and bitter chocolate, not too roasty. Finish more dry, still light bitter. Not bad!

Keg at the Copenhagen Beer Celebration 2014, red session. 03/05/2014. THick black / dark caramel brown coloured pour with a lasting thin medium tan head. Aroma is sweet vanilla, caramel cream, with subtle oak character. Palate is smooth, carbonation tickles the tongue. Full bodied and a touch chewy. Lingering spicy finish. Hides the alcohol well. Biug boy of a beer but really well done.
