DWG; Pours black with a moderate creamy, lasting and lacing tan head. Nose fills with roasted malt, dark dried fruity, coffe, dark chocolate, licorice and light alcohol. Taste is lots of sweets with bitter notes, both lasting. Body is full, texture is creamy, carbonation is flat to soft.

visionthing (2395) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 3, 2014
33cl bottle (ABV. 9,5%) from Vinmonopolet, Vika. Pours black with a beige head. Roasty aroma with dark fruits, dark chocolate, notes of coffee and licorice and hints of hops. Medium sweet with balanced and very pleasant roasty flavours and a surprisingly nice bitterness. Nice one!

tfredvik (942) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAR 31, 2014
Black body with a long-lived, large, creamy, dense, medium brown head that laces the glass well. Strong roasted aroma with coffee and chocolate, sweet fruits and anise in the back. Very dark roasted strong flavours with lots of coffee, some dark caramel and a bit too much alcohol. The moderate bitter finish is long-lasting. Full body, creamy and smooth texture, soft to moderate carbonation. A very nice one, although a couple of years in the bottle to mellow the alcohol would probably be a good idea.
[33 cl bottle, enjoyed 1 year before BB date, from Vinmonopolet Vika, Oslo]

Benderone (16) - FRANCE - MAR 27, 2014
Bière noire, léger col de mousse beige et crémeuse. Nez sur les malts torréfiés, le chocolat noir et quelques notes fruitées. Carbonation moyenne, bulles fines. Au palais c’est rond, doux et parfaitement équlibré compte tenu du taux d’alcool. Evoque particuliérement le café (avec une pointe de lait) et le chocolat noir. Manque un peu être un peu de houblon à mon goût. Excellent porter, j’en redemande!

Pretty great stuff. Tried on tap at Edmunds Oast. Pours dark and opaque with a thick reddish brown head. Also served at just the right temp (ie not too cold) so kudos to the boys (and girls) at this new brew pub in Chs. Definite chocolate and earthy flavors on the nose with a hint of hops. Feels heavy in the mouth- definite alcolhol content in this one Taste is really smooth and satisfying and finish has some interest. Sort of warm and lingering- in the good way. Pretty well balanced although drinks and tastes more like a stout to me. Real roasty flavors going on here-it’s like they took it just shy of burnt. Had no idea that beer this quality was coming out of Spain. A revelation this one.

wyzzywyz22 (1885) - Wirral, Merseyside, ENGLAND - MAR 21, 2014
Bottle, Beer Moth, Manchester. Deep dark brown pour with a small tan head. Dark choc and malts in the nose. Flavour was similar with some roast and dark fruit notes. Smooth with a warming booze hit. Quality beer, might be the best Spanish brew I’ve ever tasted.

Palme (2993) - Bergen, NORWAY - MAR 17, 2014
0.33l bottle. Looks really good in the glass this. It has a really big frothy dark brown lingering head on top of a deep dark brown body. On the nose it’s roasty, quite well hopped. I get a little phenol thingy along with dark chocolate powder, cappuccino and tones of licorice root. Not bad at all. It has a above average carbonation level, actually somewhat lively in a light oily mouthfeel. Quite roasty or even slightly burned in the taste. There is a faint sourness also here. Almost like a infection-light going on. It’s really roasty, almost burned in a way and it has a strong boozy flavor from start to aftertaste. A little bit of chocolate, bitter cold coffee and grass. A bit of salty licorice also perhaps, but it feels a bit not-integrated and a tad to boozy for a porter. Lingering dry and near burned aftertaste. Fair enough I guess. Lots of flavor, that’s for sure. 20.10.2013
