finol (3065) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - FEB 28, 2015
Draught at Mikkeller Stockholm. Nice full aroma of chocolate and coffee. Unfortunately the taste is rather thin and didn't live up to the promising aroma.

Svesse (7847) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - FEB 21, 2015
(Draught at Mikkeller Bar Stockholm, 11 Feb 2015) Black colour with frothy, beige head. Malty, roasted nose with coffee, chocolate, liquorice and black rye bread. Malty, roasted taste with notes of chocolate, coffee, black rye bread and a dry, balanced coffee bitterness in the finish. Light body, quite dry. On the thin side, but tasty and well made low alcohol "Russian imperial" stout. Quite nice.

bartlebier (3387) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - DEC 11, 2014
Odd hidden draught@Altes Mädchen, presented to me on a slip of paper as "Beer Greek Mus Kiwi Beer" (sic)...taking we a while to retrace it to this beer. - Even odder: an ImpStout at 3,5%? I thought this felt a bit watery... Good Mr Mocha coffee and green berry presence, with little staying power due to the thin mouthfeel. Minimal nut, roastiness, white grape. A foreign sessioning stout if there ever was (a need for) one.

Palme (4120) - Bergen, NORWAY - AUG 28, 2014
On tap @ Henrik. Yeah, it’s almost what you can call black this, at least really deep and dark brown and it also has a mild brown lacing little top. I get lots of smoked tones in the aroma. Mild coffee dark with a soft roasted touch as well. A tad to smoked of my liking. Tastes strange this. It’s both chalky and minerallish. I get burned matches and old bitter nuts. Really thin and disappointing in the mouth also. This was not for me. At all. Suspect this has a completely different flavor served fresh. 13.02.2014

SirLimpsalot (3805) - SWEDEN - MAY 27, 2014
@ Mikkeller Bar Stockholm: ganska enkel doft. Smaken är helt ok med tanke på att det är en lättare öl med 3,5 %. Små lätta kaffetoner, fin balans med en trevlig beska. Helt ok. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone ---- Soberness not garanteed!

omhper (23423) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - MAY 23, 2014
Keg at Mikkeller, Stockholm. Perfectly black, beige head. Resinous coffee aroma. Dry with thin body and crisp to empty mouthfeel. Coffee and licorice, light spicy hops. Mid bitter finish. Thin, but with nice roasty flavours.

Martinus (4495) - Baarle-Nassau, NETHERLANDS - MAY 11, 2014
Black as night, beige head. Aroma of coffee, caramel, roasted malts, ash. Bitter flavour, coffee, caramel, ash, sweet roasted grain notes. Finish coffee, café au lait, malts. Rather light. Quite nice and interesting.
