4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
18th November 2011
Opaque black beer, good tan head. Nice fruity nose that also has a whiff of wood and smoke. Crispy semi dry palate. Good hops - strong pine and nice citrus. Rich dark malt and dark chocolate. Lactose and coffee. Trace of tangy red berry fruits. Minerals. Strong red berry fruits and pine in the finish. Comes over like a fine Black IPA, lovely!

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pitch black body, brown head. Aroma is very complex and has nice sweet roasted malts with some dark fruits and chocolate. Flavour is even more complex with some acidic, but still sweet dark malts, piney hoppiness, some hints of smoke and chocolate. Really nicely balanced and overall really fullfilling beer.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
From notes on a bomber I drank in 2011: Being a Tolkien geek, I picked up on the Mount Doom reference right away... pours dark, good head, mouth is coffee, oranges, smoke, tobacco (mainly Copenhagen snuff... which during my youth in the Army, I use to dip a can a day of), malt. Bottle art and name are better than beer itself. Not my favorite 3F’s brew by a long shot.

Backlogged rate: Black pour with beige head...some ruby tints apparent. Baker’s chocolate, some citrus, smoke and a bit of ash are on the nose...medium-full bodied, slick palate. Carbonation is perfect for this brew...flavors consist of dark chocolate, pine, grapefruit and some smoke. Lovely brew

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottled. Pours deep brown nearly black with a medium sized tan head that leaves a nice lacing. Nose of slightly toasted malt, honey, lactose, grass, citrus and notes of smoke. Sweet flavor with chocolate, dark fruit and coffee notes that ends up more dry and pleasant bitter. Medium to full bodied, oily texture and soft to average CO2. Delicious. ★★★★

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
22 fl oz bottle, purchaced @Kihoskh, København. Pours the darkest brown with a medium-sized light brown top. Big aroma of licorice and well roasted and light ashy dark malts. Quite hoppy, hints of coffe ground. Surprisingly easy on the palate. Yet quite full in the mouth with soft carbonation. Flavorfull and complex. Full malty with loads of fruity and resinous hops. Chocolate/coffe-accented malts and bold bitterness in a lingerering finish. Good, indeed.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
1pint 6 fl oz bottle. End of the world beer 21/12/2012. Poured coffee black wirh a creamy, beige head. Moccha, oatmeal, milk chocolate and roasted malt in aroma. Flavor has hops, roastedness, oatmeal and coffee. Silky smooth mouthfeel, quite dry hoppy finish with layers of chocolate and milk coffee. Highly enjoyable, like the smoothness and the late hoppyness. Glad I got to try this as I am a huge Amon Amarth fan.
