ansalon (1619) - Stockholm, SWEDEN, SWEDEN - DEC 5, 2014
(As Mikkeller Black Calvados Small Batch Edition). Pours matte black with almost no head. Sticking your nose in assault your senses with booze, chocolate, esters, calvados, muscoavado sugar, smoked bacon.. Taste is very intense: dark chocolate, calvados, esters, burnt sugar, honey, smoked bacon. Moutfheel is very oily and compact with no carbonation. Very intense and unbalanced yet quite good - if you sip it slowly.

DSG (6337) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - SEP 14, 2014
Bottle shared at a tasting at Beer Market Jaffa. Pitch black with a bit of light brown foam. Great aroma of chocolate, cocoa, fruit and liqueuer pralines, a bit of apple acidity, vanilla, wood and some alcohol. Sweet flavor with a bit of apple acidity, lots of chocolate, wood, vanilla, caramel, mild fruitiness, liqueur and a dry roasty finish. Full-bodied, rounded, with a bit of warming alcohol. Great stuff. Alcohol is very well-integrated for this strength.

Scopey (7437) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 25, 2014
Bottle at Cgarvie. It pours jet black with a minimal tan head. The nose is rich, roasty, vanilla, salted caramel, treacle, rocky road, filthy, oil and dirt. The taste is bitter, tangy, roasty, mild acidity, plum skin, grape skin, tang, date and red grape and apple brandy with a dry, tangy finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. Rich and filthy. Fun to try, but I don’t need any more.....
