Palme (4180) - Bergen, NORWAY - MAY 6, 2012
Sampled @ Hanne på Høyden. This one pours a dark dark cola-brown body with a small quickly sidesticking tan head. On the aroma it’s really lovely roasted and sweet with dark dried fruits, dark chocolate, sticky dark caramel and hints of some alcohol. Quite lovely. It has that nice thick and almost viscous, creamy texture with a average, small bubbled carbonation level. In flavor it’s not unexpectedly, dark, bitter and roasted. I get some clear dark Belgian chocolate, with tons of roasted malts. It feels really round and delicious in the flavors this. It also has a extreme-lasting warming roasted chocolate aftertaste that’s literally making me taste the beer for a very long time after I’ve swallowed it. They’ve done it again! 11.04.2012

zach8270 (4022) - Henrietta, New York, USA - MAY 9, 2014
(bottle - 500 ml) Black pour with a thick tan head. Huge roasty aroma with some nice bitter hints of coffee and rye toast. Flavor is smooth and roasty at the start and keeps that way throughout. Finishes slightly dry from the rye but has a nice lingering bitter bite.

MrHangover (3999) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - JAN 24, 2014
Bottle @ Nieuwjaarsborrel 2014, courtesy of jmgreenuk. Pours a very dark brown beer with a small brown head on top. Aroma is grainy, rye and has some licorice. Flavor is very sweet with a big grainy base in it. The sweetness is backed up by a big bitter flavor in the back. Balance is very good in this beer, yet it’s missing a few components to be a great beer. Still quite good.
