Seems there is something for everyone thrown into this brew. A bit of a weird combination between a lot of ingredients. Sour, bitter and sweet gets blenden together, but they won’t totally fix in this one. Coffee, chocolate, some dark fruits and spices in top. To many different stuff going on to be a good brew for me.

Big boozy but not in rum? Nice touch. A little sweet for the style but legendary. Obviously. Malt, funk, chocolate, raisins and more raisins. Booze booze but a great after taste.

750 ml bottle. Pours a dark murky brown color with a small beige head. A huge dark fruity roast and yeasty nose. The flavor is warmth, dark pitted fruits, some smoke, caramel, a shot of liquor slips in. Pretty intense and still drinkable.

750 ml bottle. Pours dark brown with a big creamy head that fades quickly but never completely goes away, leaves some nice webbing. Malty and fruity aroma, toffee, caramel, slightly sour fruit, light chocolate, molasses, and some other spices or hops. Taste is a bit odd. Very strong sweetness is a bit cloying. The toffee and caramel malt taste is good but the finish of bitter chocolate and sour fruit is weird. I think there’s some of spices here but I don’t know what they are, I don’t like em. This reminds me of an English barley wine with no hops to balance the sweetness and booziness. Alcohol is fairly noticeable in the finish too. Thick body, creamy mouthfeel. Overall, really nice aroma but I’m not a fan of the taste or the finish. Just not my kinda beer but I could see some people loving this one.

Some more backlog. On tap @ BBF 2009. Black color. No head. Aroma’s: flowery hops, with malty sweetness, some sour fruit and alcohol retronasal. Flavor is medium sweet, roasted malts, some acidity and bitterness. Pretty strong alcohol feel and full bodied. Bitter finish. Worth the try.

KnutAlbert (5758) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUN 4, 2013
Bottle. Very dark brown, fluffy beige head. Rich nose, malt and chocolate. Packed with flavour, alcohol warming, sugar and bitterness that (almost) balances it all. It calls for slow sipping.

750ml. bottle that Quevillon graciously shared with me.The color is a dark brown with a dark beige head and nice lace.The aroma is of roasted malt,caramel.The taste also of roasted malt plus bitter fruits, a very dry taste.The 11 % alcohol is not that noticeable in the aroma but a bit more in the taste that last a long time.
