LarsEngen (366) - Sandvika, NORWAY - DEC 23, 2012
50 cl bottle from Vinmonopolet Vika. Pours very dark brown with some ruby tones. Medium creamy brown head that leaves a good lacing. Aroma of chocolate and coffee. Medium body and a light bitterness. Good one but not that complex.

Bansidhe (10) - Perth, SCOTLAND - DEC 8, 2012
Aromas - Roasted malts, liquorice, oddly also a slight aroma reminiscent of Hoegaarden thanks to the Coriander & orange zest. Taste - Quite smooth. Coffee and roasted malts. Slight creaminess. This is a nice tasty and smooth stout which I’d love to try on tap.

Aroma is quite hoppy and zesty with a hint of ash too. Initially it has hop freshness then the roasted bitter malts come through.

ClubGonzo (4454) - Bergen, NORWAY - NOV 18, 2012
Bottle from Vinmonopolet in Valkendorfsgate, Bergen. Pours a deep brown, near-black body with a small light beige head. Nose is light licorice and milk chocolate, aniseed-like herbal tones and some lactic hints. Taste is filter coffee, toffee, milk chocolate, dark malts and some herbal traces. Slightly thin palate, yet smooth. A bit plain - especially for using spices - but a fair enough stout, all in all.

tmrmwel (1138) - Bergen, NORWAY - OCT 8, 2012
Bottle. Pours black, with a finger thick head. Aroma is roasted malts, chocolate, caramel and some fruity hops. Full body with a rather slick texture and soft carbonation. Flavour is sweet with burned malts, bitter chocolate and dark syrup, as well as some dark fruits and some nice hoppy bitterness through the finish.

500ml bottle - Thin tan head. Clear black pour. Chocolate aroma and taste. Not bad effort...
