Samuel214 (401) - SWEDEN - MAR 20, 2016
Flaska från SB. Provning med ölsällskapet. Svart med brunbeiget skum. Mörka fylliga toner av choklad, kaffe, kakdeg, mörkrost och tendens till chark. Stor, fyllig kropp - len och oljig. Sötman något tillbakahållen i smaken, mycket rökig chark, kaffe och kol.

Bottled, from Systembolaget. Near black with mid sized beige head. Saw dust and caramel up front. Mid sweet with full body and soft mouthfeel. Mild plum brandy, rich on toffee, notes of coffee and cinnamon. Fairly low bitterness. Rich and harmonious. Really good.

Mad_Ferret (965) - SWEDEN - MAR 11, 2016
65cl bottle from SB. Murky dark redish brown, nice thick tanned head. Pretty dark lookin. A bit roasted and leathery peppery with a prominent sweet fruitiness of prunes, blueberries and figs with a pinch of licorice and some fruity acidity. Nice. Medium sweet fruity taste with more plum, apples, dark bread, spice, leather and vague licorice. A bit spicy but fairly balanced. Medium to full bodied, soft but rich carbonation, slight oily. Nice beer. Not too sweet and sticky, quite fruity and with a spicy leathery touch. Almost stout like at first. Lots of plum. Feels genuine.

Fra fat på Piccadilly Tap 15 Feb 16. Delt med Rune. Svart. Lavt mokkafarget skum som raskt blir film. Tynn tett lacing. God aroma av mørke plommer. Myk munnfølelse, Smaken tørket frukt. Helhetsinntrykket er lett søt frukt.

Rune (10838) - Tromsø, NORWAY - FEB 24, 2016
Half pint, 7.3 % abv, on cask at Piccadilly Tap. Shared with Finn while waiting for a Sheffield train. Shiny naked black surface over a pitch black body. Black malty nose with an inviting mocha twist. Fine balances taste profile of vanilla, mocha, wood and earthy malts. Dry, rounded aftertaste, lightly roasted. Well bodied. Good drinking (Manchester 15.02.2016).

Gentle_Ben (39) - Rutland, ENGLAND - FEB 21, 2016
Pours black and oily with a quickly receding head. The nose is chocolate booze and dark fruits soaked in booze. To tast this is marvellously complex with a lovely interplay of malts, chocolate and currants. The taste lingers with a warning hit of booze. Very accomplished and perfect for a winters night by an open fire. A fine example of an old ale.

adasko (1715) - Poznan, POLAND - JAN 8, 2016
Dark, almost black beer with massive poor quality head, like on coke, immediately reduce itself to just a ring. In aroma a lot of dark, bitter chocolate and dehydrated plums in liqueur. In taste it’s so nice. Smooth, velvety and very complex. Has a notes of dark chocolate, even more plums, but rather fresh ones, a bit of wood, wanila, sherry. Very long, ritch, intensive aftertaste. Slightly warms the stomach. It’s a typical couch beer. You can sit and sip it for hours. Great one!

matbli (232) - Poznań, POLAND - DEC 27, 2015
Bottle 660 ml, pours dark brown with a high head that is fast reducing to a lacing. Aroma of chocolate pudding, toffee, raisins and a touch of dark fruits. Very stoutish in taste with a lot of chocolate sweetness and a very delicate roasty bitterness in the finish. Alcohol is very well hidden. Very enjoyable brew.
