Koelschtrinker (17959) - Kln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 30, 2013
Sehr starke Karbonisierung. Dann angenehm und weich dunkel malzig, fast schokoladig, was aber durch die hohe Karbonisierung berdeckt. Rstiger, gleichzeitig spritzig, ab dem hinteren Mittelteil etwas hopfig. Gut. 13/10/8/11/9/11

Tap (ALEhouse, Riga)
Pretty much black, with a huge tight tan head. Nice chocolatey aroma - soft and inviting. Slightly watery palate, decent carbonation. Crisp and refreshin, but the carbonation makes it too burpy. Mellow roast in the taste, with just a background hint of ashy burntness. Very easy drinker, no sign of 6% at all, but a bit fizzy.

Benzai (14453) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - JAN 10, 2013
Bottle thanks to Dutchdrebus. Opaque dark brown to black color, huge light brown, a bit creamy, slightly lacing head that lasts for a decent while. Smell malts, slightly hops, slightly some sourness. Taste is almost the same: malts, slightly hops, lightly sourish, also a hint of coffee and bitter. A bit fizzy carbonation, ok body. Overall a bit unbalanced imo.

bierkoning (12669) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - DEC 31, 2012
Bottle. Deep dark brown color. Roast and chocolate in the aroma. Malty sweetish roasty flavor with licorice and chocolate. Fizzy. Good, but too much carbon to be really enjoyable.

kermis (11509) - Where the wild whales are, NETHERLANDS - JAN 30, 2013
Bottle shared from Deanso. Pours black with a massive bubbly tan head. Aroma of fresh grassy and fruity hops, rich roast, light coffee and chocolate. Flavour is light to moderate sweet and heavy bitter with a long duration. Medium bodied with high carbonation.

Rune (11487) - Troms, NORWAY - APR 5, 2013
Many thanks to Elisabeth & Stefan for sharing a 330ml bottle bought at the brewhouse in Riga. Huge, very huge, and dense, rocky, beige head leaving spotty lacework on the glassware. Promising smell of coffee and grainy malts. Taste of dark chocolate, ash and dark fruits. Bittering malty ending. Rather intense foamy mouthfeel. Quite nice (Troms, 04.04.2013).

UPDATED: JAN 30, 2013 Sample at the molten monthly tasting. Thick tan head. Clear black pour. Bitter aftertaste. Very nice.

caesar (6740) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - NOV 13, 2012
Dark color, big frothy Brown head. Aroma is fruity, dark malty, roasted. Quite rich in taste, especially for the abv. Bitter finish. Go latvia!

Marduk (6561) - Reval, ESTONIA - MAY 29, 2013
Tap. Pitch black color. Small off-white/brown head, stays. Chocolate, plums, raisins in aroma. Mellow aroma. Faint smokiness, roasted malts, slightly sour and bit watery flavor. Lack of depth. Faint roasted malts in aftertaste.

Borresteijn (6540) - Zaandam, NETHERLANDS - FEB 4, 2013
33cl Bottle from De Bierkoning. Black colour, big foamy light-beige head. Aroma of ash, tar, hard roasted malts, some plain chocolate. Flavour is Belgian chocolate, ash, hard roasted malts, tobacco, bitter coffee, tar, hoppy and hard roasted bitter finish. Light to medium-bodied. Extremely high carbonation that detracts from the drinking experience.
