AZ Strong Beer Festival. Touch of smoke on the nose. Starts light and sweet (less sweet than a milk stout though), but some body then starts to assert itself. Fades to a light bitter-brandy-alcohol feel.

Burk. Mörk färg. Doft av kaffe, choklad och metall. Söt med smak av choklad, kaffe, frukt, bränt socker och brända kaffebönor. En svagt bitter eftersmak. Trevlig stout som jag köpt några gånger nu. Lättdrucken.

Om verkligheten är ett tillstånd som uppstår till följd av alkoholbrist är Hibernal Vinifera en mirakelmedicin. Några djupar klunkar av detta elixir och symptomen försvinner på fem röda. Slipar bort vardagens vassa kanter.

wlajwl (3769) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - JUN 12, 2013
Aroma is dark malts, mild/medium nuttiness and a hint of dark fruit. The flavor is dark malts, medium grape juice notes, slight musty notes and a mix of sweetness, malts and slight tartness in the finish.

Can. Pours black, tan head. Smells fruity, smokey. Tastes full, very roasty, smokey, fruity, different. Okay. Nothing too exciting.

TheJestersBeer (2034) - SWEDEN - JUN 3, 2013
355ml can. Pours almost black, with a quick disappearing brown head. Roasted, spicy, quite fruity aroma, oak, vanilla, coffee beans, Pepsi, banana peel, licorice, wine (or am I just suggesting that?), prunes, caramel. Off-dry, full bodied, mid bitterness, creamy CO2. Roasted, spicy taste, lots of oak and licorice root, chocolate, tar, vanilla, notes of dark fruit, blackcurrants, cherries, and a quite ashy finish. Maybe a bit on the sweet side, but there’s a complexity to this beer that I really like. Maybe the licorice notes actually derive from the Malbec grapes, but who can tell? The Pepsi notes in the aroma put me off a bit, though. (2013-06-03)

Burk från SB. Svart öl med stort, långvarigt oerhört vackert moccafärgat skum. Doftar mörk choklad, röda bär, citrus och rostat kaffe. Alldeles för mycket sötma i smaken. Snaker: Kaffe, mörk choklad, vanilj, röda äpplen, honung, brunt socker.

crossovert (7006) - Illinois, USA - JUN 2, 2013
Old can, hopefully no bpa. Black pour. Smell is pleasant, sweet, sugary, hint of wine. Falvor is again sweet, metallic, decent amount of oak, still bittersweet, slight grape juice.
