Wischylini (172) - Grimstad, - DEC 15, 2013
Pours a fairly clear mahogany, with no head at all. The aromas on the nose are intense, with a dark and heavy top note of dried fruits and leather, and smoke. The aromas that develop in the mouth are intense, with more fruit, leather, smokiness, liqourice, peatiness reminiscent of scotch, earth and wood. The taste is very sweet, yet has an astringent finish, there’s also some saltiness in there. The palate is thick, heavy and mildly carbonated. With lots of aromas, a powerful taste, a thick palate and a high ABV (although not noticeable on the taste), this makes for a complex beer that is very easy to find interesting, but hard to find enjoyable.

Aroma is roasty malts, caramel, clove, toffee, smoked oak and a light earthiness. Taste is again rich malts, licorice, caramel, bourbon and sweet keg woods. Finishes with light tanin and earthiness. Appearance is black with a thin pearl head that retains fairly well.

Bottle, 500ml. Dark brown with small beige head. Micro lacing after 20-30 minutes. Solid gravity, pretty smoked, roasty aroma. Corresponding carbonation, masked alcohol. Perfect for cold evenings to drink from any glass you can warm with hands.

ruigo (1622) - PORTUGAL - JUN 30, 2015
50cl bottle. Deep brown colour with a tan head. Smoke, caramel and toffee in the aroma. Soft carbonation and medium body. Taste is a bit aggressive at first with some smoked notes but balanced with some sweet fruity notes. A bitter finish. Overall, a good beer that takes a while to appreciate.
