Svesse (6296) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - MAY 26, 2014
(Bottle) Black colour with lasting, creamy, beige head. Malty, roasted nose with notes of dark chocolate, black coffee, oak wood, black rye bread and a touch of cognac. Malty, roasted taste with dark chocolate, cacao, coffee, vanilla, dark bread, tobacco, oak wood, a touch of cognac and a balanced cacao bitterness in the finish. The chilli stays in the background at the first sip, but grows over time, and gets quite hot after a while. Slightly more than medium body, mainly dry but with some sweetness coming through. Quite complex and interesting. Still very well balanced. Very nice beer.

7/IV/2012 - 37.5cl bottle from Geers (Oostakker) @ Erwin’s place - BB: n/a (2012-338) Thanks to Erwin for sharing the bottle!

Dark brown beer, creamy beige to brown head, unstable, little adhesive. Aroma: lots of chocolate, vanilla, bit of smoke. MF: good carbon, medium body. Taste: dark chocolate, vanilla, mocha, some chilli, cocoa powder, bit of red berries. Aftertaste: chillies, dark chocolate, mocha, more chillies. Interesting, but a little unbalanced, too much chillies, making it a bit too hot to just drink like that. Should be accompanied by a meal. Maybe a chocolate dessert?
