Rune (9405) - 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).

JoeMcPhee (9004) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 16, 2013
Bottle from the LCBO. Pours a deep black with a thick tan head. The nose is awesome. Caramel and cocoa with a bit of soft smoked malt and a touch of saltiness. There is a little bit of plummy fruit character through the middle. Soft sweetness on the palate with some nice fudgey character. A little bit of soft cocoa with a nice light roastiness. Damn tasty beer.

jercraigs (8666) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 5, 2014
2014-09-30. Black body, nice brown head fades. 3+ Lightly fruity alcoholic dark malt, moderate roast malt. 7++ Flavour is similar, rich sweet dark malt character, fruity lightly tangy accents, notes of dusty cocoa. Light alcohol throughout is delicate considering how strong it is, moderately warming in the throat. Smooth medium to full bodied has light carbonation. Pretty nice. Bottle cellared close to a year, BB 2014-12-17, from the LCBO, Toronto

MartinT (8619) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 1, 2014
My Bottom Line:
Long dark chocolate malts whip up chocolate chip allusions as well as roasted bread crumbs in a slender and bitter vehicle.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A sheet of foam covers the brown-edged black.
-Even though the finish is balanced out by hop bitterness, you can still stay this brew’s all about the malts.
-This is not as sweet as many NAmerican takes on the style.
-Alcohol was not a bother at all in the flavor profile.

Bottle.

Bottle - Dark chocolate and mollasses and cocoa with a touch of coffee. Jet black with a light brown head. Deep dark roast and dark chocolate with mollasses and a nice sweetness.

DuffMan (8062) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 29, 2014
Bottle, brought to me by Robbie. Dark brown with a low tan head. Aroma features prominent dark dried fruits, light soy, and a little alcohol. The palate is silky, low in carbo and medium bodied. Flavours of dried figs and dates dominate, with some bitter chocolate and a bit of roast. Fruit acids lighten the finish. Nice.

mabel (7455) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 27, 2014
[6830-20140930] 330mL bottle. Roasted figs and toasted woody bread crusts aroma. Black body with a medium-lasting foamy tan head. Roasted figgy plum flavour has a nice soft boozy finish. Medium-full body. Good, the alcohol kind of sneaks around but it seems easy to drink at first. (8/3/8/4/15) 3.8

Svesse (6967) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - OCT 6, 2014
(Bottle) Black colour with lasting, rocky, beige head. Malty, roasted nose with coffee, dark chocolate, vanilla, dried fruit (figs, raisins), liquorice, black rye bread and hints of orange peel. Malty, roasted taste with notes of black coffee, dark chocolate, cacao, liquorice, black rye bread, dark fruit, some vanilla sweetness, hits of burnt sugar and a generous coffee bitterness in the finish. Almost full body, with a certain sweetness. Not quite as powerful as the stronger 2011 version, but a bit more balanced, actually in excellent balance. Lovely beer.
