Bottle, bought @ Etre Gourmet.
Pours deep deep chestnut, bordering on black with a firm, creamy, off-white head. Complex caramel malts aroma, light vinious, plums, a bit of coffee and liqourice. Medium carbonation, light grainy but lovely dryish and very creamy palate. Flavour has great milky chocolate, some hazelnuts, caramel, light toasted caramel, some mild coffee. A bit vinious and warming with a mild, but firm bitterness towards the end. Lovely.

750 ml bottle at Peiffeschof. Off menu, recommendation of the barman to pair with local goat cheese. Clear maroon with a massive beige head and phenomenal lacing. Aroma of chocolate and butterscotch. Flavor has cocoa powder,dark roasted malts and toffee. Slight bitter finish, but it’s mostly malt.

750ml bottle (Alvinne webshop)
6 On opening a fruity estery aroma, but also some acetone. In the glass it’s a bit of a stodgy chocolatey mashiness. Some soy.
4+ Slightly cloudy dark brown. Large dark bready head, fairly persistent. Some bits in suspension are the only downside.
7 Rich burnt taste, quite a lot of liquorice, bitter and barky. Salty almost. Bitterness is quite tangy. Slightly sweet, but well attenuated.
4 Smooth and full palate, pleasant soft carbonation. Finish is very bitter and liquoricey, saccharine as well. Something almost buttery too.
13 Very solid beer. Not so much a typical stout at all. Bitterness and liquorice perhaps a bit over-the top. Covers 9% very well. Glad I had Minna and Janne to share this with, 750ml of too much for two people.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Good, reasonably stable, thick-set, dirty cream-coloured head over virtually black beer, if with a reddish sheen. Heavy, aromatic nose with old wood, dark chocolate and an alcoholpunch with deliberate spirit (Bourbon, whisky)character. Superbly "praliné", but with full chocolate. Ashy, dry, roasted malt/stoutflavour with just a hint of alcoholsweetness retronasal. Bit of sweat, paprika, and of course, chocolate, ultra-dry but for the alcohol. Warming up, I seem to get some coriander. Surprisingly thin for its stamina and ABV. Probably very attenuated. This is a dry stout, on the verge of an I.S., and to my tastebuds, barel-aged.

Bottle from Dranken Geers, Oostakker, Nr Gent, Belgie April 2011 consumed outside Frank (camper) at Camping Igueldo, Igueldo Nr San Sebastian, Basque Country, Northern Spain 04.07.11 Pours murky brown with tan head that is liberally dotted with specks of yeast. Malty on the nose but also quite beefy bit like an oxo cube has been crumbled into this. Full flavoured beer with elements of chocolate, some tobacco, loads of yeast and some fruit. Really likeable beer, I’m well into this. A7 A4 T8 P4 Ov16 3.7

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Courtesy of SHIG. Pours hazy opaque amber with copper hues and tan head. The aroma is earthy, spicy, roast and pine mixing together with mild grapefruit and black tea. The taste is similar with a pleasing mix of roasted malts, earthiness and malts to go along with a tasty hop bill like pine and citrus. Yum!
