Maria (10119) - Thisted, DENMARK - MAY 23, 2007
Københavnske Øldage 07. Bottle, vintage 2005. I have stared at the computer now for a long time, it’s starting to get embarrassing.... I still do not fully grasp that I were one of few, who shared this bottle kindly donated by the brewer, HG, and guarded by Omhper.... Thank you, thank you, thank you - this one beer would have been enough to make my trip worth while! The beer is pitch black and the aroma has notes of oak, port wine, roasted malt, coffee and vanilla. The mouthfeel is thick and oily. The flavour has an incredible balance and complexity, and I only can compare the smoothness with velvet and silk against my skin. It has refined notes of oak (not in a clingy way), coffee, vanilla, port wine, licorice, chocolate, the alcohol is well hidden, but gives warmth, and the finish is good, dry and very, very long. What an amazing beer.... 2226

madsberg (10107) - Søborg, DENMARK - MAR 1, 2007
Bottled (Thx Bierkönig for sharing). Pitch black coloured. Dense brown head. Roast, spice, apple, chocolate, light coffee and a touch of vanilla and barral. Very balanced nose. Flavour is as good as the aroma. Again the barralaging is quite subdued and balanced. Light cigar (Yes I like that flavour), sweetness, vanilla, spiced, roast and light chocolate. Balance, balance, balance. Flavours are very well adjusted to each other. Medium to full bodied. Chocolate, spice and vanillasweetness mingles in the perfect end. Reminds me a lot of the ordinary Stormaksporter, which I like as much as this. This for sure is a good beer.

bierkoning (9999) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - SEP 27, 2007
UPDATED: SEP 18, 2008 2006 bottle. Almost black color, with dark brown foam. Creamy aroma with dark chocolate, ash and roast. Thick bodied, but dryer as expected. initial alcohol is attacked by a flavor bomb, consisting of cream, roasted malt, loads of dark chocolate, ash, oak, beechwood and pineapple. Alcohol burn in the endless aftertaste. Complex and delicious beer, seems heavier than its promised 10% ABV. 8 4 8 5 17 = 4.2 2007 version, tap @ EBF 2008. Flower honey in the delicious aroma, combined with some oak. Licorice, honey and roast in the flavor. Lusciously sweet but still a great complexity. Licorice in the aftertaste. Again: excellent!

Koelschtrinker (9999) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 11, 2011
Der angenehme Malzantrunk steigert sich in den Mittelteil hinein, in dem das Malz deutlich intensiver und vollmundiger wird. Stark schokoladig (herb) und würzig, wenig Zimt. Vergoren fruchtig, unglaublich Vollmundig. Nahezu perfekt! 14/14/13/15//15 Komplexer Malzantrunk, süßlich, deutlich röstig. Malzig bleibend, fast schon unglaublich komplex wie hier mit den Malznoten gespielt wird. Im Hintergrund fnden sich leichte Noten einer Eichenfasslagerung sowie des unbedeutenden Hopfens. Sehr leicht alkoholisch, malzig-bitter (zwischendurch), schokoladig werdend, langer dunkelschokoladiger Abgang. Hammer Bier! 13/14/13/14//14

Bov (9245) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - DEC 13, 2006
courtesy of Per Samuelsson - dark black coloured with a little brown foam formed of big bubbles; robust and highly complex aroma: wood and licorice, roasted coffee, chestnuts, prune and a touch of alcohol; thick and slightly oily palate; full-bodied and with a strong but not overwhelming bitterness; very long bitter and salty coffeish aftertaste where more woody, cookie notes can be met along a warming alcohol touch - what a fantastic beer ! complex, powerful but never exuberant
