mice (783) - FINLAND - JUL 21, 2016
Musta olut kohtalaisella ja melko pitkäkestoisella beigellä vaahdolla. Tuoksusta on vaikea sanoa ensituntumalta oikein muuta, kuin että se on varsin loistava. Syvän tumma, ruislimppuinen, paahteinen, siirappinen, aavistuksen suklainen kokonaisuus todellakin toimii. Jopa lievää viskisyyttä havaittavissa. Maku pystyy yllättäen tarjoamaan varsin tasavahvan kokonaisuuden tuoksun kanssa. Todella maukkaassa ja monipuolisessa maussa on ruislimppua, paahteisuutta, siirappista sokerisuutta, kevyesti viskisyyttä ja kuivempaa kahviseen taittuvaa humalointia loppupuolella. Pitkäkestoinen jälkimaku on toisaalta siirappisen makea, mutta samalla suolaisemman kuiva. Täyteläinen ja pehmeä suutuntuma. Todella laadukas olut jälleen norjalaisilta.

Gluepot (407) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 19, 2016
A big dense tan head with heavy lacing on a dark brown body. A big rich nose with sweet malt, cocoa, coffee, berries and some chalkiness. This is a big rich imperial porter. Slightly bitter coffee, cocoa, chocolate fudge, plums, dark berries and a touch of rye spice are all present in this dense and rich beer. A touch of vanilla adds to the party. Smooth, well blended and creamy. Superior

574deadzone (1372) - North Central, Indiana, USA - JUN 29, 2016
Guessing this is at least 2 years old. Pours dense black with a quickly dissipating khaki head that settles to a thin ring and leaves a few spots of lace. Nose involves rich dark chocolate, licorice, hints of bbq wood smoke, toast, sawdust and damp wood, raisin, cola. Decently sweet, fairly bitter. Lighter bodied, actually strangely on the thin, very soft toward flat, finishing smoky with a crusty rye bread note. A nice beer, lots of interesting things going on. Palate/mouthfeel is the only let down, and that could be the age showing.

tomekk1978 (1302) - Z±bki, POLAND - JUN 18, 2016
UPDATED: JUN 18, 2016 Aromat niezbyt wyrazisty - czekoladowy, owoce w czekoladzie, likier. Niestety równie? troche utleniony. Barwa ciemno br?zowa, z obfita, ciemno bezowa piana, ale do?? szybko opadajaca. Smak jest na szcz??cie o klas? lepszy. Spora dawka s?odyczy, czekolady, czekoladowych pralin, owoców w czekoladzie, nieco melano i alkoholu. Goryczka lekko zaznaczona, nie przeszkadza. Kr?g?a pe?nia, umiarkowane do niskiego wysycenie i wytrawny slodowy finisz z alkoholem rozgrzewajacym przelyk. G?sta i oleista konsystencja. Przyzwoity imperial.
