Bottle from Appellation Wines. Appearance - opaque brown to black with a thin crema head. Nose - molasses, black jack sweets and candied sugar. Taste - blackcurrant and more molasses. Blackcurrant menthol om the end. Palate - medium bodied with a creamy texture and a long elegant finish. Overall - a lovely complex beer.

johndoughty (5306) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - NOV 6, 2016
Swing top bottle. Very dark brown with a large head on opening which was slow to dissipate. Quite creamy with an unusual fruity flavour. My second from this brewery an well worth trying.

Palme (4535) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUL 8, 2016
0.33l swingtop bottle. A really deep and dark brown - near black one in the glass with a good looking really huge almost creamy-fluffy dark ashy brown colored head. The nose is not directly what I would call extreme, but it’s still present with a little chocolate, a sour thing in the background and dark malts. It really doesn’t smell like it looks. It has a really nice oily mouthfeel with a comfortable above average carbonation level. That sourness in the aroma is also present in the taste. It’s woody-chocolate and a little bit sweet also. The slightly sourness actually works very well here. Making it a bit more interesting. Sour licorice? Is that a thing? Slightly peppery in the aftertaste. Interesting. 05.10.2013

allmyvinyl (10285) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUN 3, 2016
Bottle from Salt Horse. Pours black with a thick beige head. Aromas of liquorice, faint honey, light roast and dark fruit. Taste has a stronger coffee hit, more dark fruit. Clean finish. Bit of a sipper.

Bebum (895) - Massachusetts, USA - APR 20, 2016
Dark copper, tan head, avg lace. Full body, intense flavor on attack but subsiding in the middle, lean and very hot mouthfeel, lingering and tasty palate. Very bitter but not dry, except in the finish. Intense roast flavors, coffee, dried cherries, raisins. Very nice stout. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Nonshaugen (567) - Fetsund, NORWAY - FEB 18, 2016
33 cl, bottle conditioned fliptop, Almost exploding at the opening, ruined almost everyting at my desk area. It was really waiting to get out of the bottle. Very dark beer, thin tan coloured head. Low aroma level, but the coffee, chocolate and roasted notes are there. Palate is really challenged here, lots of flavours and carbonation going on. Flavour is malty, lots of coffee and dark fruits. For me, this is a somehow weird mix of the stout and abbey styles, it’s none of them and both at the same time. Will I buy it again? I don’t think so....

tmrmwel (1974) - Bergen, NORWAY - FEB 2, 2016
Bottle, hiver 2013-14. A gusher. Pours black, with an enormous creamy mocha head. Aroma is roasted malts with coffee, wooden barrels and leather. Full body, with soft to average carbonation. Flavour is sweet roasted malts, with bread, cocoa and coffee. Lingering sweet malty finish.
