UPDATED: SEP 10, 2016 Thanks to the Birthday Boy, Craig "Swiftkey did it" Garvie - 2008 Vintage

Opaquest dark brown, a total black hole swirl of a tan head. Rich sugary dusting. Dark smooshed figs, toasted coconut and isolated grab of raisins as it warmed and a welcoming porty porter core. Initial taste is a proper shotgun burning raidance of Meaty, juicy darkest malts - treacly charred sweetness seeping through. Vanilla pod crackles. Soily/dusty coffee dryness. Stabbing richness towards the finish, speckled fizzing out heat on the finish. A lot more layered and flavorsome than a Dark Lord, although a little more chewy meaty and leap at the finish - it’s up there and it’s mysticality will only increase each year this isn’t made.

Bottle at Craig’s, another amazing beer from the hallowed cellars! 2008 vintage. Pours jet black with a thin tan head. Aromas of liquorice, wood, light oxidation, light roast, meaty. Taste is boozy, sweet, roasty finish. Hot, but good.

Svart öl med ett litet och brunt skum. Doft: Kaffe, kola, kanderat socker, russin, sött fruktigt vin. Smak: Kola, choklad, russin, lakrits, lite julkryddor. Lite mindre "trög flytande" än vad jag minns att den brukar vara.

Vintage 2008. Bottle sent from teorn88 (thanks so much, Matteo!) – been trying to hunt one of these down for several years now! Pours jet black with a very small tan head. Nose brings out lots of woody oak, roasted malt, and maybe some dry powdery cocoa. Flavour is fairly complex, with lots of oak and wood, medium roasted malt, and maybe some dried overripe fruits. Very woody and oaky, which are the flavours that dominate. Extremely soft palate, with low carbonation – no hint of oxidation. This is surely excellent, but number 1 in the world? A treat to have, but this is massively over-hyped.

Many thanks to Joey for sharing these. Cocoa, smokiness, medium sweet, chewy texture, delicious stuff with great rounded character. I’d probably give it closer 5 if I felt more comfortable giving a higher score to a beer I’ve literally tried less than 4 oz of.

hotstuff (4874) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - MAY 5, 2014
Rated on 4-28-2012 at Fort Wayne, IN Gathering. This bottled beer courtesy of jsquire, pours a very small head, opaque almost black body, and spotty amounts of lacing. The aroma is wood, smoke, bourbon, and vanilla. The flavor is dark fruits, vanilla, a lot of bourbon, and smoke. The mouthfeel is light carbonation and this beer is medium-full bodied. Overall, wow another great sipping and complex beer! The various flavors come together very well to make for a very good tasting beer. This beer is well worth trying and a beer I want to have again.

En liten smakportion hos Närke Kulturbryggeri. Fantastisk Doft och smak. Först blev det jag lite förvånad av smaken men så exploderar den!
