2010 Vintage. Very dark, almost black, red edges. Sweet berry smell. Burnt aroma, raisins, leather, nuts, some general dark fruitts, generally christmas-y in a good way, if one can say that. Hints of medicine and toffee. Sweet, but not too much. Low carbonation, very pleasant mouthfeel, quite thick. Well balanced, nice bitter aftertaste.

Bottle 2010-01-30 Göteborg AR: Vinos, sleeky fudge, grape AP: Coffey brown, high 4 cm compact brown head F: Vinos, sleeky fudge, grape, too start with to sprity - lets wait, the last gulp is usually the best with these kind of beers. Some kind of herb flavour occurs in the end The grand finale is not really there. On the label coffey was mentioned - humbug! Granulated formed curtains - haven’t seen that before (that I can remember). Cheers!

ClubGonzo (3924) - Bergen, NORWAY - NOV 4, 2009
2009 batch, pours from bottle dark reddish brown with virtually no head. Strong alcoholic scent, almost overpowering. Bland, malty taste with small undertones of roast, but not nearly enough to justify the poorly concealed exhibitionist alcohol, which also affect the palate in a rather disturbing way. Can’t get any aroma vibe from this beer at all, except the strong alcohol presence which really doesn’t do much in the way of taste improving. Guess its main purpose is to get Norwegians really drunk on Christmas Eve. Disappointing.
