omhper (18939) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - JAN 10, 2014
Keg at Olivet Twist, Stockholm. Near black, no head. Licorice aroma with some red wine. Mid dry with medium body and clean, rounded mouthfeel. Coffee and licorice with some red wine, mid bitter finish. Good components, but strange marriage.

Beese (1066) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 9, 2014
Draft from BrewDog Shepherd’s Bush opening night on 29 November 2013. Poured black with a medium, dense tan head and good lacing. Aroma of roast malt, black cherry, liquorice. Mouth feel was medium. Some sharp bitterness in the initial flavour, with some dark malt, some coffee, but overall lighter than perhaps expected. Finish was also quite light with some oak, espresso and a little grassy hop. Nice, but I prefer the original.
