Sigmund (6719) - Tau, NORWAY - MAY 25, 2013
(Damn - my notes disappeared when I had made my first rating.) On tap at Haand Beer Festival 2013, Drammen. Sampled before I had the barrel aged version. Appeared drier than the BA version, and lacks of course the oaky notes - otherwise it is much the same.

RichardW (1813) - Carlisle, Cumbria, ENGLAND - MAY 19, 2013
330ml bottle. Pours thick, deep black and looks like a stout should do. Strong cocoa and dark chocolate aroma, which comes through well, there’s also treacle and brown sugar deep in the mix, dark fruit and the expected rich roast. It drinks so smoothly, hides the strength so well and reminds me why I love stouts when they’re like this.

Taste of roastred malts, some dark bitter chocolate, touch of liquorice, charred notes in there, alcohol well hidden, charcoal
Palate - Soft carb, medium to full body, oily creamy texture. Finish is creamy, bitter roast finish with some creamy dark plain chocolate, dryish tail with some charred roast
Overall - Well made beer that’s for sure, lots of high ratings here, for me it was rather over roasted - I’m more a fan of impys than foreign stouts
