Yorker (993) - Herning, DENMARK - JUL 19, 2013
65 cl bottle @ home. Pours dark brown with a tan head that leaves some lacing. Aroma is cocoa, chocolate, liquorice, and roasted malt. Flavour is much like the aroma – with a slightly bitter finish.

Rune (7365) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JUL 5, 2013
Half, guest draft at BrewDog Leeds. Dark-brown body with a reddish tint. Diminishing, fawn-coloured head. Fragile lacework. Smell of dark malts with liquorice up front. Dark malty flavours supported by grassy hops and bitter liquorice towards the ending. Masked alcohol. Well balanced. A good one (Relaxing in Leeds on a Sunday afternoon, 30.06.2013).

doublebock (491) - California, USA - APR 29, 2013
Black brown with tan head. Interesting aroma for an imperial porter-I was expecting a malty aroma but instead I’m smelling more of a Hefeweizen. I’m picking up some of that same Hefe-like yeastiness in the flavor as well as some sassafras. The finish has a anesthetic- peaty flavor.
