marcus2013 (18) - SWEDEN - DEC 9, 2013
Aroma of chocolate malt and berries. Black/dark brown with a small head. Taste coffee, chocolate and roasted sadly not very rich flavor. The beer got a medium/thin thickness. Not a bad beer but was expecting more.

kevinsenn (1303) - Waterloo, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 9, 2013
Bottle from LCBO. Pours black with a tan head. Roasted grains and a little bit of berry in the aroma. Taste is roasty, chocolatey, with some licorice and grains. Very good stuff!

Ernest (6519) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - DEC 7, 2013
Bottle (BB 2015-10-07). Head is initially large, creamy/frothy, brown, fully lasting. Body is dark brown to black. Aroma is moderately malty (roasted grain, coffee), with light notes of alcohol, tar, minerals. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter. Light to medium body, watery texture, lively/soft carbonation, moderately alcoholic. Let it be known that I played Unleashed’s "Midvinterblot" album while rating/drinking this...the title track of course being a sequence of verses praying to Thor, Freyr, and lastly Odin, but in general it’s one of this Swedish death metal band’s best albums. I think this is the 2013 edition based on the BB date (and it appearing on the winter beer shelf with all the other new stuff at a Systembolaget in Stockholm in Dec). Is it worthy of the sacrificial winter blot festival? Not so much, but it’s not bad. Very roasty/coffee-ish in the nose, but surprisingly watery and thin in the mouth relative to its size. Expected/hoped for something more rich and satisfying, but it’s basically just a straightforward roasty stout with more alcohol in it.

Vignale (2340) - Malmö, SWEDEN - DEC 4, 2013
Flaska från SB. Julöl 2012 drucken 1 år gammal. Närmast kolsvart med högt bestående beige skum. Snyggt. Stor söt doft av muscovado, karamelliserat socker, torkad mörk frukt, mörk fudge. Stor kropp, rejäl sötma, bränt socker, bitter choklad beska. Lite för söt och inte så rund som jag vill ha en IP. Kan säkert bli ännu bättre med längre lagring. Behöver komplettent som en söt chokladdeseert eller glass, då lyfter den. Helt klart maffig.

mzaar (1856) - Varberg, SWEDEN - NOV 10, 2013
Flaska. Läckert svart vätska med moccafärgat skum. I doften hittas mörk choklad, lakrits, röda bär. Torr munkänsla, viss kolsyrighet. Besk eftersmak. Mörk choklad, kaffe, lakrits och svag rökighet intar munnen. Ljuvlig.

espenra (902) - Kurland, NORWAY - NOV 9, 2013
33cl bottle. A gift from a friend. Best before 2014-10-01. I poured a pitch black colour with a big creamy off-white head. Aroma is big and laden with liqorice, coffee, roasted malts and dark chocolate. Flavour is moderately bitter. Lots of liqorice and coffee, but also dark chocolate, vanilla, tar and some fruit. Long, lingering aftertaste. A very nice beer indeed.

Bottled@SBWF2013. Deep ambery brown colour, small brown head. Aroma is coffee, ripe fruits, some toasted and roasted notes. Flavour is coffee, roasted malts, rye, dark fruits and some sweetish notes to go with it. Balanced.
