Hermod (6417) - Vantaa, FINLAND - JAN 5, 2014
50cl bottle, #761, brewed on 10.12.12. Pitch black, thin brown head. Aroma is overwhelming with licorice, wood, light smokey notes and rye quite strongly later on. Very smooth, oily mouthfeel. Flavor has chocolate, coffee, rye, licorice, hops. Espresso-like strong coffee in the dry, bitter finish. At the same time it feels velvety smoothin the mouth. Full bodied superb beer.

skortila (5284) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - JAN 5, 2014
Bottled. Sample 0,1ltr. The aroma has coffee, rye, some raisin tones, slight fruity hops. Dark coloured with a beige head. The taste is sweetish, and becomes more bitter towards the finish. The rye kicks in in the middle. Mouthfeel is smooth, bit slick with a medium-full body. Some kind of ashy/balsamic/aceton off-flavour (Couldn’t really pinpoint it) makes this beer a bit unbalanced. Good thing is that it is quite well drinkeable for its abv.

__Rb81 (650) - NETHERLANDS - DEC 20, 2013
Bottle at home (bottled 07/01/13, batch 906). Pours black with a medium sized tan head. Aroma of alcohol, roasted malts, and chocolate. Chocolate and roasted malts taste, not so much alcohol as expected from the smell. Some hops in the aftertaste. Could be bit more creamy. Nice beer.

czar (7723) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 16, 2013
pours unclear dark brown, red tint, with a small light beige head, some retention and lacing. dense chocolate, tobacco, nice fruitiness - cherries, spices, pepper, some burnt caramel, booze, leather, some smokiness. moderate carbonation, light to medium body - oily, almost silky, balanced grassy-peppery-spicy finish. complex and pretty enjoyable and solid strong porter - a pleasant surprise..

Idiosynkrasie (6415) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - DEC 15, 2013
500ml bottle. Pitch black colour with late awakening, huge, frothy to creamy, fairly lasting, moderately lacing, brown head. Initially chocolately dark malty aroma with hints of roast and a touch of biscuit as well as cautious floral hoppy overtones, developes - while warming up - notes of leather and tannic acid, tarmac, peat, shoe polish, liquorice. Taste is dry dark malty, bitter hoppy, herbal overtones, hints of roast, heavily salty liquorice and the like; minimally burning alcohol in the finish. Not exclusively endowed with flattering flavours, but rich, complex, heavy, full-bodied. A well-deserved week-ending.

Chudwick (2819) - Cincyucky, Kentucky, USA - NOV 29, 2013
Draft - pours dark brown with tan head. Nose is coffee and brown sugar. Sip adds roast, dark fruit and something on the tip of my tongue but I can’t... Complex bitterness. Long roast finish.

IPAgutten79 (917) - Skui, NORWAY - NOV 24, 2013
Sort farge i glasset med lavt skum. Søtlig aroma av malt og mild sjokolade. Smaken er litt bitter, malt, og antydning til tørket frukt i form av rosiner kanskje. Også sjokolade og kaffe. God i munnen, med fin bitterhet i ettersmaken. Middels tykk konsistens. Ganske god egentlig, men for min del kunne den gjerne hatt enda mer sjokolade/kaffe i smaken.
