lusikka (6267) - Tampere, FINLAND - SEP 21, 2014
Bottled. Thanks veliemboys. Pours a pitch black colour without a head. Aroma is rather weird; overly ripe fruitiness, wood, shoe cream and licorice. Flavour of roasted malts, burning alcohol, salt, astrigent and a huge amount of licorice. Some unpleasant sourness as well, which gets stronger as it warms up. Medium bodied and oily mouthfeel with a mouthdrying finish. Unfinished and somewhat unpleasant.

olio (6232) - Tampere, FINLAND - SEP 20, 2014
25 cl bottle. Bottle #03971. Batch 723/731. Brewed on 01.12.2011. BBE 01.12.2015.
Pours pitch black color with a large beige head, looks very nice. Very damp stuffy aroma, some dark fruity notes, lots of dark roasted malts, vanilla, some chocolate and wood. Harsh bitter dark malts, faint vanilla, tangy dark fruits and some cocoa. Not sure if this is still okay, feels a bit harsh and off somehow. Decent but quite disappointing.

25 cl bottle @ home. Batch #723/731: brewed 01.12.2011, BBE 01.12.2015. Bottle #03971
Aroma has some licorice, soy sauce and sweet apple tones (cognac?). Flavour is somewhat tart with oat, chocolate, salty licorice and some soy sauce. Finishes with deep roasted notes. One can observe the regular NØIS in the background. Warming alcohol in the finish. Not that nice, tartness ruins the show here. A bit infected?

250ml bottle

Bottle #03791, batch 723/731, brygget 01/12/11 - Pours pitch black with a really nice looking thick brown head. Aroma of stingy wood, tart apples, roasty malts, buttery bourbon and vanilla. Taste is stingy, roasty and sourish with some bourbon and vanilla notes. Finish is stingy and woody with some roastiness and tart notes. Feels a bit off, perhaps slightly infected.

ERB92 (317) - Bergen, NORWAY - SEP 12, 2014
Coffee, berries, dark chocolate, licorice, olive oil and leather in the aroma. Black with a brown head. Medium to heavy sweet and medium bitter. Full body with a soft carbonation. Overall a beautiful Imperial Stout, coffee and licorice most dominant in the flavour and with some nice warming alcohol in the back.

RasmusOtt (1171) - Aalborg, DENMARK - SEP 11, 2014
Pours pitch black with a very small brown head. Aroma of.... olives? and chorizo? Roasted malts, smokey notes, coffee, olive oil, grains, italian spices - what is going on here? Taste is a bit more normal. Some roasted moats, some barrel quality, a slight alcoholic note, liquorice and some coffee. This was pretty strange haha, But yearh!

Vestergaard (379) - Aarhus C, DENMARK - SEP 11, 2014
25 cl bottle. Pours pitch black with a dark brown, fizzy head. Aroma has dark, roasted malts, salt, olives, single malt whiskey, soap, olive oil, chorizo. Shit, i’m getting some weird stuff here. Taste has a sugary, fruity sweetness up front, brown, burned sugar, a dry wooden bitterness, a slight smoke, and again this old olive oil. A little chocolate and a little licorice. Decent, full body, and medium high carbonation. An odd experience, but still pretty good.

Klimaet (155) - Aarhus N, DENMARK - SEP 11, 2014
Botlte shared with vestergaard and rasmusott. Thanks guise. Pours pitch black with a medium mocha head. Aromas of coffee, bourbon, olives, oily, some roast, some sweet dark fruitiness. Taste is some smoke up front, some sweetness, olives once again comes through giving it a taste of a sunny afternoon in Italy with a thapas table packed with delicious chorizo.

kappldav123 (5018) - GERMANY - AUG 28, 2014
Bottle looks simple but really good. Beer in the glass dark black, nice head. Starts heavy malty, intense earthy-stouty, bitter background with light fruity hints. Finish with coffee notes, earthy-woody. Not bad!
