yngwie (14762) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JAN 31, 2015
Bottle. An almost clear looking dark reddish brown beer with a dense, finger-thick light beige colored head. Some curtains. The aroma has diacetyl, dried fruits, some roasted malts and a chocolate touch. Caramel. Some faint notes of butterscotch in the flavor too, Quite hop bitter, with a piney hint in the back. It’s full-bodied and semi-dry, pleasantly carbonated. Lasting roasted, caramel finish with a fine bitterness and some diacetyl notes. Except for the diacetyl it’s a decent beer, but there’s nothing impressive going on. 150131

Bottle from Coppers, Newcastle. Very dark brown in colour with ruby red highlights and a thin tan head. It has rich currant, liquorice, chocolate and christmas cake flavours with burnt toffee and vanilla on the warming finish. A very nice Winter Warmer!

fordest (2014) - Santee/San Diego, California, USA - SEP 11, 2014
Cask at Number 27 in Inverness. Dark ruby pour with tight tan head that left decent lacing but otherwise dissipated. Aromas of dark fruit and Chooclate. Taste was a touch metallic with a bitter finish. Not bad at all.

The_Osprey (2755) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 10, 2014
Cask at Draft House. Very dark brown, nearly black. Decent foamy off-white head leaves thin, pale lacing. Aroma is sweet and yeasty with some wet dog and chocolate. Body is medium, low carbonation, slightly foamy. Taste is light smoke and ash, overly sweet banana skin element (which I hate in many similar beers) is softer here and obscured by the smoke, which makes the finish bearable. Could be better.

Erzengel (4893) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - SEP 4, 2014
Bottle. Smooth roasty beginning. Fresh, malty with a nice smooth roasted body. The aftertaste is smooth malty, roasted with a velvet-like mouthfeel! Great!

Bottle. Pours deep dark amber. Chocolate and licorice nose, roasty. Nice bitterness with oaky whisky tones. Nice warmth from alcohol. Licorice aftertaste, malty. Bitter. My favourite of their beers. The limited barrel aged version of this is even better.

Idiosynkrasie (4532) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - JUL 9, 2014
500ml bottle. Clear, chestnut colour with average, thick, frothy to creamy, fairly lasting, minimally lacing, off-white to beige head. Dark malty aroma is slightly chocolately, fruity notes of red berries, a minimally earthy and foliage touch. Taste is dark malty, notes of liquorice, red berries, a earthy, minimally herbal touch; slightly sticky palate. Very coherent, harmonious - really nice.
