Yeasty with herbal notes. Peppery with floral notes and a slightly oily palate. Warming alcohol and peppery on the finish. Good.

Bottle. [thank you Skortila/caesar]
Pours deep brown with a giant, frothy, beige head. Fizzes away rather slowly. Mild toasted toffee aroma, light milky chocolate and a touch of roasted malts. A bit weak mouthfeel, medium carbonation. Flavour is lovely, though. Mild, elegant roastiness, milky chocolate. Toffee and a touch of coffee. Very long, lingering aftertaste.

TBone (11918) - Pori, FINLAND - JUN 16, 2009
Bottled. Thanks bierkoning! Deep brown color, good creamy beige head. Toasted coffeish, licorice aroma, a bit similar to Slottskällans IS. Later also some earth and metal. Flavor is suprsingly quite weak and mouthfeel is thin and watery for a beer of this strength. Light coffee, toasted malts, chocolate, but these flavors are painfully toned down. Soft it is anyway.

Dickinsonbeer (5076) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - MAR 26, 2009
Pours a lightish brown for a stout- nice foamy head. Aroma is a nice roasty barely- light coffee, with licorice hints. Smooth chocolate and nutty toasted malts, roasted barley light espresso, star anise and leather with a clean bitter finish. As it warms you get some slight burnt rubber burnt toast and charred wood.

Ughsmash (7005) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 24, 2009
2007 bottle. Poured medium-deep reddish-brown with a thicker cap of tan head and some serious crud suspended in there. The aroma picked up sour chocolatey malts paired with soy and spicy licorice notes.. some sweeter chocolates surrounded.. seemed just a little off. The flavor opened with soured black malts and light spicy bitterness.. moderately-roasted, semi-sweet chocolate and a pinch of soy at the core.. dry, well-placed woody and herbal bitter accents at the edges.. finished sweeter and roasty, losing the sourness. Medium-bodied with higher carbonation on the palate and a good level of roast.. the sourness threw me off a touch and seemed to be a mild infection.. definitely some good stuff in here, and I’d like to revisit sometime.

SHIG (3449) - Wasilla, Alaska, USA - JAN 19, 2009
Bottle: Poured a black with a brown colored head. Aroma is light with grassy tones, some roasted malt. Taste is kinda weak with roasted malt and chocolate, finish with that clumpy hop grass.

<b>Bottle 33cl.</b>
Clear medium to dark red brown color with a average, frothy - creamy, excellent lacing, fully lasting, light beige head. Aroma is moderate to heavy malty, roasted, cold coffee, notes of caramel and nutty. Flavor is moderate to heavy sweet and bitter with a long to average duration. Body is medium, texture is oily to watery, carbonation is soft. [20081003]
