RB# 6400 (zip code of my birthtown), Norway #100: Shared from a bottle put on by Greg Koch@Stone, just another rediculous world class beer on this RBSG tour. Pours pitch black with a creamy brown head. A solar eclipse when held against the California sun warming behind us. Dense roasted malt and chocolate aroma, like a smooth piece of Belgian chocolate that you’ll enjoy in a second. Flavour is smooth, dense chocolate and roasted malt. Mild lingering alcohol into the finish. Smooth and extremely tasty - by far not as boozy as some of the first editions where.

Ungstrup (29850) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUN 21, 2009
Bottled. A pitch black beer with a brown head. The aroma is sweet with strong notes of roasted malt combined with notes of alcohol. The flavor is sweet with notes of roasted malt and alcohol, which leaves a burn in the mouth. The body is thick.

Papsoe (25083) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - OCT 11, 2008
(On tap) Completely opaque black with no head. Distinct aroma of burned malt, tar and tobacco. Extremely full-bodied with almost sticky burned malt and molasses - and again tar and tobacco. Very burning alcohol in the finish. 120908

joergen (21533) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - SEP 17, 2008
Bottle at EBF 2008. Pitch black coloured with a medium sized beige head. Alcoholic aroma of liquorice, dried fruits and fruits. Alcoholic flavour of liquorice, chocolate and dried fruits. Roasted and warming alcoholic finish. Still too young and alcoholic.

oh6gdx (20947) - Vasa, FINLAND - SEP 16, 2008
Bottled@EBF2008. Pitch black colour, not much head. Aroma is wood, smoke, alcohol, salted licorice and a lot of caramel malts. Flavour is much the same, but will probably be better and more mellow if kept for some time. Will be interesting to see if this gets better than the first edition.

omhper (19974) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - SEP 19, 2008
UPDATED: OCT 1, 2008 Bottled at Europen Beer Festival, Copenhagen. Very black, no head. Tarry nose with wet asphalt and wood. Sweet and thick with compact mouthfeel and massive body. A tar explosion sends cascades of licorice, salmiak and grain vodka all over the place. When things finally settles it ends up tasting like Finnish Salmiakki-booze.

Opaque black beer, thin chocolate coloured head. Dark malt nose with ’green’ coffee. Surprisingly light palate, a little soft. Spirity dark malt and coffee. A coffee liquer without the sweetness. A trace of unsweet dark chocolate. Whisper of cherry before an effervescent dark malt with minerals. Less sweet than the 1st Edition but lighter and with some fruit.

The color is blackest, with a brown medium sized head, short lived; fizzy. Aroma of coffee, cream, toffee, light whisky cream, wet cardboard; later, alcohol. The carbonation is very high; the body is much less strong than expected; the alcohol punch is immediate, burning the tongue almost, thinning the body; flavor of chocolate and coffee, but soulless. Too much alcohol in the end, very boozy. Nothing, compared to the Third Edition I just had.
