Holmen1 (5665) - Stavanger, NORWAY - MAR 2, 2013
Flaske(nr. 5140) fra polet: mrk som arvesynden med sjokolademousse p toppen. Aroma av bjrnebr, solbr, litt ingefr og et streif av rykmalt. Saftig, stor smak og lang ettermsmak hvor en touch av chipotle (trket, rkt mexikansk chili) og ingefren balanserer maltsdmen og gjr det riktig s lekkert. en meningsfylt lopplevelse med flelse av eksklusivitet. M kjpe en for lagring.

larsga (7497) - Oslo, NORWAY - FEB 24, 2013
Medium beige head. Opaque black body goes deep dark hazy brown at edge. Herbal dried fruit aroma with meaty cloves notes. Dry-sweet intensely spicy cardamom and cinnamon taste with chocolatey laquer and tropical wood notes. Full-bodied. Soft, yet quite hot and spicy mouthfeel. Dry-sweetish spicy cardamom and lacquer aftertaste with alcoholic cardamom, cloves and lavender notes. Nice. Highly drinkable, harmonic, and interesting, even if it is a bit high in alcohol. (0.375l bottle, wine monopoly, Vika, Oslo.)

BeerCast_Rich (1906) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - FEB 20, 2013
[375ml bottle, Appellation Wines, Edinburgh] As a style, black barley wine sounds completely ridiculous, but the infusion of ginger, chipotle and raspberries make it even more outr. This, however, results in a fantastic aroma ageing these AB releases doesnt half produce some fantastic combinations. Ginger and earthy chilli smoke. Tastewise, it was exactly like eating a chocolate-covered piece of candied ginger. A delight [18022013]

Bov (12606) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - FEB 18, 2013
from Erzbierschof - black beer under an elusive dark beige foam; aroma of roasted malts, nougat and alcohol; notes of fruity hops; thick and full-bodied, pretty sweet, moderate carbonation and very tasty; some late and solid bitterness; long aftertaste of ashes, nuts and with a warming alcohol touch

onkelgobber (162) - Edinburgh, - FEB 18, 2013
Nose is somewhere between nice ginger and shoe polish. Pleasant is you leave it alone. Pours fairly dark with a small beige head. Very sweet with some herbal hints. Very unbalanced. Finish is bitter greens and not so pleasant

Fspirit (54) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - FEB 16, 2013
Medium head .Smells more ginger than i tastes. I was looking forward to a beer with some spicy ginger notes, but I was let down on the first sip. Still, after a while, this becomes a pretty good beer. Dark, spicy and heavy barley wine with a hint of citrus fruits.
