Sigmund (6278) - Tau, NORWAY - FEB 6, 2016
330 ml bottle, vintage 2012, bottle No. 1368, from Prima Beer, Hobro. 99 IBU as fresh. Ebony colour, low beige head. Aroma of dark malts, chocolate, vanilla, prunes, oak and fortified wine. Soft mouthfeel, very moderate carbonation. The flavour has the same notes as the aroma, also coffee and decent hops in the finish. Good beer.

BlackHaddock (5748) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - DEC 11, 2015
2012 Vintage: 330ml bottle into a Westmalle chalice at home on 11th Dec 2015, most likely to finish the rating in the early hours of the 12th Dec 2015. Dark bodied with a wispy tan head, a mini-collar but not much else. The nose is awesome, prunes, dates, booze, Port, Sherry, Oak and goodness. The taste blew me away, all those aromas plus more booze and more booze blended with Oak and red berries soaked in alcohol pods (are there such things?). Did I mention booze yet? Just a fantastic brew: loved it. Goes really well with Chocolate Hobnobs!

Bottle, 2012. Pours dark brown, small head. Aroma of dried fruits, dark bread, pumpernikel, coffee notes somewhere in the back. In taste medium sweet, dried fruits and coffee. Dry finish, medium to low body and very low carbonation. Very tasty brew.

Aroma is chocolate and roasty malts. Poured jet black into snifter; head dissipated quickly. Flavor is hot chocolate with an aftertaste of alcohol. No burn; very nice.

freretoc (1505) - Besançon, FRANCE - OCT 23, 2015
Bue en bouteille de 33cl à la maison, couleur rubis/noire, pas d’effervescence et pas de bulles. Au nez grosse attaque sur le bois et l’alcool. En bouche attaque sur sur le brandy, le kiersch et la cerise puis assez alcooleuse, fin de bouche sur le chocolat et le café mais aussi avec une longueur sur le bois. Assez ronde même si elle piquait avec le sucre.

Arve_Christian (4596) - Oslo, NORWAY - OCT 17, 2015
On bottle with Visionthing, thanks a lot! Black color, some foma. Medium/high aroma intensity; licorice, leather, lightly roasted, choclate and malt- also distinct smooth after storage. Full body & high complexity. Some immediate sweetness, some balaincing bitterness. Very enjoyable

visionthing (4469) - Oslo, NORWAY - OCT 17, 2015
33cl bottle from some bottle shop in Tallinn some time ago. Pours close to pitch black with a minimal, beige head. Aroma of roasted malt, dark chocolate and cocoa, dark fruits and hints of hops and raisins. Medium sweet, somewhat mild roasty flavours with a fairly balanced bitterness. Certainly a decent IS.
