   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 5/5   OVERALL 15/20
tfredvik (1830) - Oslo, - OCT 29, 2012
Ooooh, this is a black one. The tiny brown head isn’t that long-lived, but I’m a sucker for black bodies. The aroma is filled with christmas in the woods: juniper, pine trees (needles, cones, bark and the lot), heather and dried dark fruits. And of course alcohol. The taste is heavy sweet and moderate bitter, although it’s a bit hard to say what’s bitterness and what’s the alcohol trying to dissolve my palate. The flavours are actually not that strong, but it’s still an overwhelming experience due to the alcohol kick. Dark dried fruits, alcohol, dark dried fruits in alcohol and alcohol with dark dried fruits. And for me this works! It feels extremely thick, full and sirupy, an amazing mouthfeel. A lovely sipper, but I don’t think I would need much more than my tiny sample to fulfil my yearly need of Stelliger Divum. And, seriously, what’s with that name? What’s Stelliger Divum supposed to mean? And who’s anyone supposed to remember such a name after drinking a beer of this strength?

Holy mother of christ this is insane. Pours a deep and incredibly syrupy brown, like a cola syrup. Zero head. Aroma is figs, malt, and a subtle undertone of bathtub wodka. It takes a couple of sips to actually figure it out, but I think this tastes like liquorice, dark chocolate, and plums. Oh, and moonshine. It’s actually not so bad until it hits your tongue, but the aggressively boozy nature of this beer is just too much. The guy whose review was just gibberish was probably typed after his first sip.

BlackHaddock (6629) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - DEC 10, 2016
500ml bottle (2012) between five at the December 2016 Shrewsbury Beer Exchange Group meeting in Chez Sophie. Cheers Mat for another interesting offering. It poured reddy brown, a very dark brown actually, sadly no head at all. Aroma was of malts and dried fruits (dates, figs etc). Taste was rich dried dark fruits (again dates and figs) and coffee/chocolate cake. Alcohol noticeable but not ’in your face’ for a 19%ABV brew.

minutemat (4756) - Shrewsbury, Shropshire, ENGLAND - DEC 5, 2016
500ml bottle from trade with Gunnar @ monthly tasting, Chez Sophie. Pours deep reddish dark brown, no head whatsoever. Aroma of rich malty grainy dates, cola. Taste is oily, rich dark fruits, grains, dates, dark fruits, chocolate cake, warming, rich, boozy. For a 19% beer, this is surprisingly balanced.

Massive, well-balanced and slightly sweet. Lingering rich, full flavored taste, flat foam. Hints of dried fruit, spices and dark malt. Perfect to Christmas cakes and desserts. Good candidate for storing a couple of years.

Clear ruby brown color. Almost no carbonation. Lots of alcohol up front in the aroma with some chocolate, fruits and vanilla. Rich, oily mouthfeel. Very sweet beer. Dried fruits, berries, lingering bitter toastiness. Very hot. This should be an undrinkable mess, but it can work nice as an after-dinner drink.

Dyp mørk brun. Aroma av malt, kramell, kaffe og olje. Smaker anis, nellik, karamell, heftig shit. Dette ølet utfordrer smaksløkene. Lager en story med smaker. Fantastisk opplevelse
