OleR (4802) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 18, 2012
Small bottle, brought home from Kihoskh, KÝbenhavn. Jet black body. Tall, mostely lasting choco head. Nice fruity and hoppy aroma, backed by rich and fresh sourish coffe/chocolate and well roasted dark malts. Roasty, light tarry malt flavor. Yet crisp and kind of fruity with a sour-sweet twist. Thick texture. Full body. Fresh bitter-sweet and roasty ending. Good stuff.

gEUS (1171) - Linden, BELGIUM - APR 10, 2012
33 cl bottle - pours blacker than black and leaves a light brown creamy head (1 finger). Nose is roasted malt, coffee, some soy sauce and a hint of green paprica. Medium to full body with light carbonation, sweetness all over and dry finish with bitterness kicking in at that point (also some alcohol glowth and something spicy).

Countbeer (4542) - Best of E-Town mit ein Brauhaus, NETHERLANDS - MAR 31, 2012
Bottle: Yeah, a completely black motor oil pour! Medium vast brown head, that disappears slow, on top of a pitch black beer. Will this be another George... The aroma is a beautiful mix of roasted malts, coffee, roasted barley, light hints of liquorice, some spices/alcohol. All very well blended. Taste roasted malts, coffee, light roasted brown sugars, some bitterness, chocolate soaked hops, earth, tobacco, spices, sticky sweets which are well balanced with the bitterness and roasted ingredients. Spicy roast earthy coffee herby aftertaste. Low carbo, soft almost silky mouthfeel, full body and a creamy sticky texture. Bit on the sweet side at first, but after a while it gets more easier and tastier to drink. Good and interesting brew.

In bottle. Pours a very dark brown colour with a thin light tan head. Aroma of burnt toast, roasty malt and a little liquorice. Similar flavours with mild carbonation and an oily mouth-feel. Quite sweet and a little dry with lingering Weetabix malt and caramel.

Bottle at cgarvieukís, courtesy of Benjii and Sev. Thanks!! Deep black pour, no head. Awesome nose, massive rich dark chocolate, liquorice, massively fruity, hint of coffee, marzipan maybe. Amazing sweet chocolate front, more marzipan, sweet caramel maybe, hints of coffee grounds, just a very very tiny hint of booze on the finish, also a touch of earthy hops. This is pretty amazing.

Palme (3454) - Bergen, NORWAY - MAR 16, 2012
0.33l bottle @ Henrik. Quite dark this one, on the border of being black and the bubbly little head that came when pouring it quickly fades away in to near nothing. It catches much back in the aroma. I got the bottle that has been standing on the shelf, so finally I got a beer close to the temperature I like. Yeah, the aroma, its dark and sweet. Lots of roasted malts and it almost smells like it has been barreled on something. Chocolate tones and tons of vanilla. Some hints of burned caramel, and all in all itís quite delicate and nice. Itís surprisingly medium-bodied for a 11.5% ABV imp stout. A thin oily texture - something I would call a bit disappointing actually, and the carbonation level is extremely low. Near the border of being and flat. No, wait, itís as good as flat. The taste is quite sweet. Surprisingly sweet in the flavor, and it has lots of dark roasted malts, vanilla, chocolate, thin licorice and some caramel as well. A bit confusing this one. Perhaps a bit to sweet and "dead" for my liking, and normally I quite like the sweet and calm impy stouts. But tasty? Yeah, definitely tasty. 23.02.2012
