fletchfighters (1056) - AUSTRALIA - JUN 24, 2013
500 ML bottle dark brown color, bordering on black. Thin collar of light brown film. Thick looking and slightly syrupy looking. Big nose. Oak, licorice, balsamic Vinegar, smoked and roasted malts with a touch of soy sauce. Lots of booze for the age of this. Taste is oak, licorice, coffee, slight smoke but more roasted malts, touches of soy. Some pine notes still with this. Has aged quite well. Feel is rich and thick. Lots of booze still. Low carbonation and a big body. Smooth though. I thought a lot like Black Tuesday without the barrel component. Fun to drink but dangerous

jookos (2064) - FINLAND - MAY 9, 2013
(2/2012) bottle. I remember this being quite oaky. Otherwise yet another nice RIS from nögne. I’m actually surprised at the low score. But, it was during a RIS tasting so I guess I could afford to be picky.

berlinoise2go (608) - NORWAY - APR 26, 2013
Bottle (50cl). Brewed 2007, consumed 2013. Pitch black colour. Finger-thick dark beige head that reduces to a stable ring. Boozy swirl, no lacing. Impressive, complex semi-sweet aroma of roasted malt, smoked wood, soy sauce, balsamico, coffee, licorice. Full body, flat carbonation. Rich and fairly dry, woody taste with a balsamico-like acidity that grows towards the finish. This is well balanced by a modest sweetness and some saltiness, but it veers just a bit too much in the acidic direction for full marks. Long malty salty-acidic aftertaste.
