pilsnerrogge (2608) - Finspång, SWEDEN - JUL 10, 2005
Dark brown. Frothy head that dissipates quite quickly. Malty chocolate aroma. Malty, dry, oaky flavour. The alcohol gives it a harsh finish. A little bit too strong for its own good.

caesar (5678) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - JUN 1, 2005
Skortila shared this bottle with me and another friend, and i’m so glad he did! Cloudy brown color, medium brown head. Aroma is exceptionally good, strong black and roasted malt, but also soft notes with vanilla and toffee. White wine, sherry. Taste is full bodied with malty and fruity tones. The brut yeast makes the beer quite dry. Alcohol burn is only slightly present, but it suits the beer perfectly. A newcomer in my personal top10!

skortila (4804) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - MAY 30, 2005
Bottle. Aroma has a lot in it, malts (chocolate, toffee), spices (pepper ea), some dark fruits and vanilla. Cloudy, brown coloured with a lasting, medium brown head. Taste is sweet, malty (toffee, chocolate), roasted, some vanilla in it, some fruits, creamy. Sherry-like taste. Very decent bitterness in the finish combined with a complex spicy (peppery) taste. Quite dry with a decent body. Magnificent brew.

Emil (6065) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 29, 2005
Bottle. Red brown colour with a baige head. Herbal spicy barnyard aroma and a sweet medicin taste. Medium body and a sweet finish. There is just something I don´t like in this beer.

Papsoe (25074) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 15, 2005
UPDATED: JUL 2, 2005 (Bottle 75 cl) Very dark, almost black with a fine slightly off-white head. Huge almost vulgar champagne-like bubbles. Extremely complex aromas of....I don’t really know what - some coffee perhaps. Dry and rather bitter. But an extremely complex flavoural pattern and indeed a unique experience. 190305

Ernest (6603) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAY 1, 2005
Head is initially huge, frothy, off-white, fully lasting. Body is hazy dark brown, bottle conditioned. Aroma is moderately malty (caramel, toasted grain/bread, coffee), lightly yeasty (horseblanket, barnyard, cobwebs), with notes of anise and coriander. Flavor is heavily sweet, moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is moderately sweet, moderately acidic, moderately bitter. Medium body, velvety texture, lively/fizzy carbonation, lightly alcoholic. Nice aroma, excellent appearance, well-hidden alcohol. Not as rich and luxurious in the mouth as I’d have wanted, but quite nice.

Again, I am grateful to BeanDip and her man for sharing this rare treat with me last night!

Poured a dusty brown / black body and a full on rocky khaki colored head. The aroma and flavor were predominantly yeasty to me, but nice notes of toasted chocolate barleys fall in next. Hints of toffee, and lightly sweet brown sugars are next, but there was still a doughyness to be found. You know, it was much like what I think a Belgian style Porter would be like… brewed with those peppery cardboard, chalky Belgian yeasts. I think I was expecting more of a sweet chocolaty resemblance to in the beer? Overall, a very well crafted beer. I would love to sample it again one day.
