NordicV (1576) - Malmö, Sweden, SWEDEN - APR 6, 2013
Nästan svart öl med ett ljusbrunt skum. Doft av choklad, lakrits och mörka bär. I smaken så träder det fram en vinsyrlighet som tillsammans med de rostade kaffetonerna tyvätrr får mig att tänka på gammalt surt kaffe som stått alldeles för länge.

hackobock (2767) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - APR 6, 2013
Bottle from Systembolaget. Pours black with dense large brown head, the head slowly dissolves leaving a nice coating on the sides. Aroma is very smooth, oak , sweet grape, chocolate, licorice, dried dark fruits, notes of smoke. Taste is bitter chocolate, semi-sweet and finishes with smokey grape notes leaving a chocolaty bitterness. Medium body.

Damn tasty. RIch, toasty and a touch of roast. Chocolate, some oak, tannins and a dry roast finish. Very tasty.

TimE (4533) - Tokyo, JAPAN - APR 5, 2013
Pitch black color, med brown color head. Dark chocolate, a touch of oak and grape in the nose. The mouth isn’t too roasted with treacles, coffee, oak and moderate amount of acidity. The grape notes hit the back of the throat and add a nice bit of complexity. Roasty, somewhat dry finish.

humlelala (1188) - DENMARK - APR 4, 2013
(12 oz can from Systembolaget; BBD: December 2013) Pours black with thick, creamy tan head. Decent retention and regeneration. Aroma is smooth roasted malt perhaps somewhat remniscient of a Lion stout (my only frame of reference when it comes to foreign stout). Fruity estery hints in there as well. Creamy texture, medium body, soft carbonation and a short, warming and slightly dry finish. There’s some dry bitterness in the finish too. Where there would normally be residual sweetness one finds instead something like a slightly acidic fruit juice. This gives the beer a slightly odd twist for a stout. Taste is estery and boozy with only hints of roasted malt. A bit odd.

Lite torr rök. Strävhet och viss sötma. Inget som imponerar. Krystad. Knappast elegant.

SirLimpsalot (3119) - SWEDEN - APR 3, 2013
@Basunen: lite tunn doft av kaffe och rök. Smaken är något fylligare, aning besk och lite söta undertoner. Helt ok men inte imponerande. En hel del pommenans tycker jag även hitta. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Released april 2 in Sweden on Systembolaget. Nice looking can. Clear, brown, almoust black liquid with a brownbeige head that dissapears quickly with no trace. Strange, original smell! Fruity, hoppy, oak, grape, vanilla and wine... Taste of grapes an sweet malt, coffee an chocolate. I really can’t find the "stout" here - But it’s good! It´s easy to drink, refreshing and tasty - I find myself longing for more!
