rarbring (2262) - Linköping, SWEDEN - FEB 16, 2013
Aroma: Smelling of burnt toast and cold coffee, soy sauce and darkness.
Appearance: A blackish brown ale, a tan head, good lacing and good curtains.
Taste: The taste starts with dark rye bread, cold coffee, some dates and fermented blackberries, soy sauce.
Palate: Little carbonation, a soft and fresh texture, but a very dry finish.
Overall: A nice burned dry stout - but no empire here!

daje (4123) - NORWAY - SEP 15, 2013
Bottle, september 8th 2013. Black body, vanishing beige head. Aroma of roasted malt, chocolate, licorice. Taste of coffee, spicy yeast esters, caramel and hops. Short roasty finish, with a pleasant bitterness. Not a stout with strong taste by any means, but still actually quite enjoyable.

Nice to try one of these, something that I haven’t done before this. 6% impy? Nah. But let’s see what it’s all about. Dark brown/black body with an ENORMOUS off white head. Slightly smokey aroma of... Eh. Lentils or chickpeas. Strange. Fava beans, coffee and chocolate in the soft, peany malty taste. Lovely, pillowy mouthfeel, but... strange. Damn strange.
