Flaske 0,33l. Gave fra Fin&Loz&Isobel. Thanks a lot! Delt med Rune under sesjon i H9 8 Mai 13. Ekstremt dyprød. Egentlig svart. Høyt mokkafarget skum som varer. Pene filigranser på glasset. Veldig god aroma av røstet malt med tilløp til kaffe. Smaken er veldig mild. Lett røstet.

Rune (8490) - Tromsø, NORWAY - MAY 9, 2013
Great praise to Fin & Loz & Isobel for bringing a 330ml bottle all the way from England to Tromsø a few months ago. Pours a deep palisander coloured body, and a beige foamy head with a solid stand. Inviting grainy chocolate smell, impression of roast malts. Fine blended taste of chocolate, oats and nuts. Dry bittersweet finish. Easy to drink. Nice (shared in company with Finn at Finns in Tromsø, 08.05.2013).

Bottle from Rai Wines. Bit thin but tasty, you know the score... bit of choc, bit of coffee. Dunno who Sam Airey is.

leaparsons (8311) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - FEB 10, 2013
Bottle. Black with a beige foam. Aromas are nutty and earthy coffee with gritty cocoa. Herbal, natural liquorice with blackberry and hints of cherry. Flavours are blackberries with sweet chocolate and raisins. Weetabix with coffee and some medicinal notes. A bit thin bodied but then it is only 4.5% Decent.

Desverger (2386) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JAN 31, 2013
Bottle from Mr Lawrence, SE London - Dark brown/black pour with a frothy fading to thin tan head. Roasted malts, chocolate/cocoa, coffee/mocha. Body is watery/light which was weird at first, but grew on me as I completed the bottle. Pretty decent stuff this.

Cask at the Cask, Pimlico - 11/09/12. Dark mahogony brown with a thin tan head. Light roasted malt nose, oats, barley, coffee and some nutiness. Moderate roast malt flavour, coffee, licquorice. Light to medium bodied but on the wet side.

Leighton (11866) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 13, 2012
Cask at CPK, London during the Revolutions Tap Takeover. Pours rich brown with a creamy, beige head. Lovely nose, lots of earthy roast, soft coffee, moderate milk cocoa. Light sweet flavor, faint lacto tank, velvety chocolate, baking cocoa, very light mocha notes. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Great condition. Light sweet finish, very low bitterness, faint moss, some ashy roast. Very nice.
