Countbeer (4850) - Best of E-Town mit ein Brauhaus, NETHERLANDS - DEC 27, 2014
Bottle: Vintage 2013: Served in a Chouffe glass: Not sure who I have to thank for this bottle, but thank you to the one who got me this bottle of beer. Medium sized vast creamy yellow beige head with a black body. Aromas of hops (flowers and fruit included), liquorice, some roast, like a crispy stout or even better a good BIPA! Flavours of roast, bitters, bay leaf, hops, fruits, flowers, some mocha tints, floral and herbal tones. Tasty! Aftertaste is a mix of bitters, hops, bay leaf, some hop fruits, hint of chocolate and some hop flowers. Low carbo, creamy mouthfeel, medium to full bodied. Great beer, balanced, interesting and damn this is really easy drinkable stuff considering the ABV. Well done!

pilsnerrogge (2554) - Finspång, SWEDEN - DEC 26, 2014
Bottled:
Pours black with a nice head.
Aroma is cookie dough, dried fruit, plums and licorice.
Taste is hops, licorice and some coffee leading to warming finish with a hint of dry, roasted malt.
Tastes like the missing link between Imperial Porter and Black IPA.

BeerSkull (1329) - SWEDEN - DEC 22, 2014
(Bottle). Lovely scent of hops mixed with aromas of dark roasted malt, cane sugar and licorice. The taste is hopy with flavors of roasted malt, dark chocolate and some salty licorice. Dangerously easy to drink with a tone of warming alcohol in the finish. However, In my view there’s a little too tangy/fruity tone in the taste, I prefer drier Porters.
