Holmen2 (2873) - NORWAY - DEC 26, 2014
Bottle kindly donated by OMB, shared with JMD at HNB 26.12.14. Black. Persistent pale brown head and lacing. Fruity aroma of dark berries, roasted malt and dark chocolate. Similar taste, with a slightly sour freshness with dry roasted barley

Holmen1 (4816) - Stavanger, NORWAY - DEC 26, 2014
0,75 flaske (takk til hedonisten the high flying Olav!) bb. 28.06.14, på Holmens siste aktivitetsdag i 2014:dark, strong and handsome - brunsvart med højt lysebrunt skum. Bæraktig aroma og smak,mørk lakris og krydder blander seg inn i den mektige smaken. Alta schiuma, buoni amici! ABV 7%, ikke 6,5 som RB sier.

ElDesmadre (3078) - Mikołów, POLAND - MAY 4, 2012
Bottle. Almost black with a gigantic, rocky head. Wow! Aroma is cocoa powder, dark chocolate, licorice, some coffee, cherries and sherry. Rather light body, quite typical porter taste, light sourish, dominated by roasted and chocolate malts, with a distinctly coffeeish, slightly earthy, warming finish. Excellent!

GT (9982) - Oceanside, California, USA - MAY 24, 2010
750mL courtesy of Travlr. Poured a deep, opaque brown/black with a dense, brown head that leaves some very good lacing. Aroma of burnt/dark cherries, baker’s bitter chocolate. Taste is dark cherries, unsweetened chocolate, cocoa, light coffee. A little thin-bodied, soft carbonation. I’m not sure what I would categorize this beer as. Could actually be a porter. Not quite full-bodied enough to be a Belgian stout. I think Belgian Strong Ale is used here as a catch-all. I don’t really think there is a major Belgian yeast profile to this beer. There aren’t too many ultra rich dark fruits, spices, etc I would associate with Belgian Strong. This one is much more heavy on cherries and chocolate and even is a faint bit tart. Porter would be a good fit.

750ml bottle pours a viscous, opaque black with a thin, beige head. Aroma is nice, malty, toasted breads, a little cherry, a little cola. Flavor is bread, crackers, malty, sweet, light coffee, vanilla, black cherry. Finish is super smooth. Finally, an Italian beer I like. This is an Italian take on a Belgian stout. Very neat.

SHIG (4670) - Wasilla, Alaska, USA - MAY 19, 2010
Bottle: Poured a deep black with a tan head. The aroma was light coffee. The taste was acidic coffee, nice hops character, and just a hint of chocolate. Originally started drinking this at a temperature that was to cold, so it livened up as I went. By far the brewers best beer IMO.

Travlr (21446) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - MAY 12, 2010
Bottle at the brewery. Nearly black, small tan head, good lacing. Aroma of caramel. Taste is sweet, malty, subtle chocolate. Would be a good base for barrel aging.
