> Bright ginger and lime forward bitter RIS

[ Bottle ][ bytemesis ][ 33cl ][ Trade ][ Woodshop Snifter ][ 5/1/14 ]
>> Pours deep sepia with thicker, rocky crema head. Nose is fresh and floral, licorice, root, anise, ginger, mousse, fresh lemon, hints of whatever aromatic hop was used. Taste is very bitter, a tad dusty, ginger bite, tannic and dusty ginger root, spicy chocolate. Interesting beer. Palate is long, slightly tangy, not papery or too lemony. Clean ginger and lime bite. A pretty bright RIS if there was one. Good stuff.

>!< slightly tangy, dusty ginger peel distracts

Ragnampiza (342) - Rome / Lecce, ITALY - APR 24, 2014
330 ml bottle from BG Birra, served in a Teku glass. Pitch black, absolutely no light passing through, with a small but creamy, dark beige head. Strong and powerful aroma, notes of vanilla, wet wood, sugared coffee, espresso and milk/white chocolate. Light alchool smell. Initial bitter punch, dry coffee and bourbon-like sensation upfront, not as sweet/cloying as I was expecting. 70% dark chocolate and freshly roasted coffee beans follows. The alchool is there, but barely noticeable warming the throat, not in a harsh/burning and unpleasent way. Sweet and slightly herbal/medicinal aftertaste. Very soft carbonation, medium to full body, oily texture. Could be more balanced and refined, but its pretty much great already.

330 ml bottle poured into a Belgian snifter. Pours black with a finger of tan head. Aromas of sweet roasted coffee, dark chocolate, light vanilla. Tasting notes of dark chocolate, sweet coffee, pine, bitter roast, dark chocolate, a bit of soy sauce. Full body with a dry finish. Low carbonation, oily mouthfeel. Prefer Beer Geek Brunch Weasel but this is a solid imperial coffee stout.

DuffMan (6532) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - APR 17, 2014
Bottle, shared during our epic night at MicroBar in Reykjavik, with Arnie and Stein. Near black, viscous, with a slowly rising brown head. Sweet coffee aroma. Rich coffee, milk chocolate, hints of sponge toffee, leather... cant read part of my notes but I think I loved this pretty much completely.

33 cL bottle at home. Pours pitch black with a small to medium tanned head. Aroma has some tar, licorice, some coffee, roasted malts and some spices. Taste has roasted malts, dark chocolate, vanilla, coffee and some alcohol. Full body with a soft carbo. Quite nice.

maneliquor (3006) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - APR 10, 2014
UPDATED: JUN 12, 2014 Bottle from Mane Liquor. Pours black with a dirty tan head. Nose is full of leather and coffee with mild vanilla, light spice and chocolate. Taste is a great balance of leather and rich roasted coffee. Finished with huge dark chocolate, biscuit and honey with rich leather throughout. Tobacco springs to mind. A lot of complexity here and it works like a treat. Drinks so well with an ashy full mouth feel which changes throughout and lingers on and on. Absolute stunner. Love it

TheCametron (1751) - CZECH REPUBLIC - APR 2, 2014
Bottle. Pours Black with a thin tan head. What a beer. Aroma is bursting with Roasted malt character. Coffee, Chocolate and burnt wood ash. Full bodied and luxurious. Its got a hell of a bitterness leading in to the finish. Not much sweetness despite the high alcohol content. An adult beer. Totally delicious.

Huhzubendah (2415) - Washington DC, USA - MAR 16, 2014
Served alongside a new bottle of Beer Geek Brunch Weasel and a Amager / Mikkeller Hr. Frederiksens Vsel Brunch (Barrel Aged). The beer is black and viscous with a thin layer of beige head, resembling crma. Rich, roasted malt. Distinctly Danish from the aroma alone. Coffee notes and a touch of char. Thick on the palate with luscious coffee and dark chocolates. Silky smooth on the palate. An elegant beer. Easily the best of the three versions. Im not sure why this tasted markedly better than the standard Weasel, as I dont know of any specific differences between the two beers. However, this was up a notch from the standard Beer Geek Brunch Weasel. Delicious.
