Craft Islington. Keg. Opaque black beer, small tan head. Palate is viscous but with good fine carbonation. Mild emulsion paint esters. Rich dark malts. Spicy mid but the heat doesn’t linger. Touches of dark chocolate and coffee. Smooth finish. A mild repeat of the spice on the linger. It’s pretty drinkable for a 15% beer but other than that the top 50 status of this one is beyond me, the volume is turned up to 11 but it’s straight 3 chord progression playing!

yngwie (14701) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - DEC 20, 2014
Bottle. A very dark brown beer, clear-looking and topped by a small, dense, light tan head. The aroma has some caramel sauce, some booze and chili and quite a lot of coffee, vanilla and cocoa. There’s dark sugar, caramel sauce, chili and coffee in the flavor, with vanilla and dark sugar. It’s full-bodied and warming with a soft and pleasant carbonation. Lasting finish with a tad too much booze. The sweetness of this beer goes well with the alcohol level and the chili. Sure a nice one, really, really nice. 141220

Bottle at Churchkey courtesy of me! Thanks. Bottle suggested by Eric. Seemed to fit in with the Ales from the Darkside theme at one of CK’s frequent events. Poured into 8 shot glasses and shared around. Color of 10W/40. Aroma of fruity burnt espresso. Taste is big woody, tannic burnt coffee with a subtle edge of pepper. Decent. Big.

MiP (13955) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JAN 9, 2015
Bottle, 14%. Roasted aroma, sweet and salty, some paint thinner, but not too bad. Black colour. Very small dark brown head. The flavour is roasted and quite sweet with a citric finish. Papery finish with some chili. Warming chili, not too much at all. There is some coffee, but I do not get much vanilla.
