Bottled from Bierkoning, Amsterdam. Black appearance, lasting brown head, beautiful. Not very strong, but quite complex nose of roasted malts, oatmeal, liquorice, coffee, nice. But the best part of this beer is the flavor, extremely complex, developing during every sip, roasted malts, coffee, chocolate, liquorice, wow. Lasting bitter finish. So complex yet so easy to drink. Impressive brew.

Hermod (3512) - Vantaa, FINLAND - MAY 28, 2013
330ml bottle, bottled on 02.01.13. 9,9%. Black colored brew with a lasting brown head. Aroma has cocoa, roasted malt, molasses, licorice, and dark sweet fruits coming through as the beer is getting warmer. Flavorwise this beer has a lot of chocolate and roasted malt kicking in at first, then a layer with some warming alcohol and licorice. The finish is dry with cocoa, ashes and some weak fruity hoppy notes also. Smooth, full bodied. Excellent IS. edit: After sipping on it for 30 min. I had to raise the taste points from 8 -> 9. excellent stuff.

Nocturne (912) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - MAY 27, 2013
330ml bottle, almost exactly a year old according to the label. Seems more like black than brown. Thin ring of head that quickly vanishes. Nice roasted malt, dark chocolate and black coffee aroma. Much the same taste-wise. Chocolate starts things off before coffee takes over. Some old hop notes still show themselves. Fairly oily mouthfeel and a faint alcohol heat creeping through. Good stuff as always.

(Bottle) very dark beer with a beige head. It has a very strong aroma of a blend of toasted malt, chocolate and coffee. The initial taste in the mouth is a strong, bittersweet chocolate hit and then coffee and malt comes through. I think there’s a slight hoppiness in the flavour as well. One of those beers where there is a mix of flavours which work but each is still distinct. Very drinkable. Too drinkable by half given the strength!
