VsXsV (2574) - Linköping, - NOV 18, 2012
Bottle. Opaque black liquid with a thick, medium to big sized mocha head. Nice lacing. Aroma of fresh ground coffee, dark fruit, ash, bitter chocolate, bread, smoke and some sweet alcohol. Taste is light sweet and medium bitter with notes of coffee, piney hops and light ash. Medium to full bodied with medium carbonation. Not flat as last year’s version. This one’s actually really good. Nice going.

Rune (8724) - Tromsø, NORWAY - FEB 18, 2015
330ml bottle from Systembolaget Kiruna, provided by djoeye. Finger-thick tan-coloured head reduced to a naked surface. Spotty lacework. Pitch black body. Roasted malts and grainy chocolate on the nose. Well blended taste of chocolate, liquorice, figs, and vanilla. Long-lived roasted ending with dark fruity hints. Hidden alcohol. Fits the season nicely (Tromsø 13.02.2015).

Listigovers (387) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 1, 2015
Too bad this poured without much head, pure black. Strong aroma of caramel and slight nuttiness. Flavor is similar to aroma, roasted flavor, bitter with good rich full bodied mouth feel. Slightly chocolaty, no alcohol bite, but warms you up nicely. Great!

DerWeg (1535) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 9, 2015
Dense brown color small head, gold-cognac highlights. Aroma and taste of dark toasty bread and dark dried fruits, suspended with a good herbal dryness of leafy hops. Mineral, caramel. Warm alcohol is tucked well in the assertive but rounded palate. Swedish magic, want to swim in an icy lake and be vampire bait.

Finn (4514) - Tromsø, NORWAY - DEC 31, 2014
Flaske 330ml fra Systembolaget, Kiruna. Drukket i Skibotn 25 Des 14. Svart. Nesten ikke skum. Det lille som er har litt farge, God fruktig aroma. Mest plommer. Sherryaktig. Smaken rikt fruktig. Sherrypreget sitter i. Plommer, aprikos og mørke druer. Innholdsrik & god. Et skikkelig koseøl.
