bursprak (3285) - Aarhus, - DEC 26, 2013
Shared 375 ml bottle. Pours pitch black withs minimal tan head. Really Galton the carbo. Aroma is a bit sour with chocolates and berries. Taste is again abut sour upfront, finishes with cacao, toffee and some berries. This might have been a bit oxidized but still quite ok.

djoeye (5277) - Tromsø, NORWAY - SEP 26, 2017
Aroma; the confectionery box, and dark fruits, long row of fruits. Look; off white head, clear dark amber body. Taste; confectionery, dark fruits, vintage wood, chocolate, nuts and all of it - lingering tasty finish. Feel; solid body, nice in the mouth, top score. Overall; vintage winning beer. Great find for the taste buds. [37.5cl corked btl#5663/9972 at trio [email protected] Tromsö 1Aug2017, big thanx2Rune for his BlixBoden treasures. 8395'17]

Flaske - #5663 - spandert av Rune. Delt med ham og djoeye hos førstnevnte 1 Aug 17. Svart. Skum langs glasset. Kompleks aroma. Som konfekt. Smaken en overdose av whisky & frukt. Alkoholen godt integrert.

Lisowczyk (98) - POLAND - AUG 28, 2017
Skojarzenie z murzynkiem w gorzkiej czekoladzie, przypalony spód od ciasta, pumpernikiel, karmel, palony słód. Wiśnie w likierze, delikatnie alkoholowe, są również świeże, kwaskowate wiśnie, oraz nuty utlenienia - dojrzała śliwka, rodzynki, sherry. Minimalny sos sojowy. Na finiszu dębina (minimalnie ściągająca) i nieco pieprzna nuta whisky. Laktoza wnosi kremowy posmak, słodycz. Słodkie, palone, pieprzne, alkoholowe i kwaskowate jednocześnie. Goryczka niska.

Svesse (8830) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - AUG 11, 2017
(Bottle) Black colour with no head. Malty, roasted, vinous nose with notes of liquorice, dried fruit (figs, dates, raisins), tamarind, burnt sugar, hints of coconut, soy sauce and caramel. Malty, vinous taste with sweet liquorice, black coffee, sour cherries, dried figs, raisins, burnt sugar, coconut and vinous hints of sherry in a finish with a mild bitterness. Full body, quite sweet. A bit harsh and unbalanced, but really tasty. Nice one.

4.1
Rune (13645) - Tromsø, NORWAY - AUG 7, 2017
375ml cradle and wire cork bottle stored in my cellar for a few yeast. A few bubbles on the top of a jet black body. No lacing. Confectionery smell, very inviting. some impact of oak and dried fruits. Well blended taste of dark fruits, confectionery chocolate and oak. Sherry like impression. Full bodied. Velvety in the mouth. Delicious slow sipper. (Joint session with Finn and djoeye, Tromsø 01.08.2017).

Creedence (314) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 27, 2017
Sample from bottle on graduation night. Pours a treacle black, no head, no bubbles, no carbonation. Looks like an espresso. Smell is big, full of coffee, dark chocolate, molasses, rich porty fruit. Taste is big sweetness, lovely fruity notes, quite roasted coffee bitterness and just a hint of sour fruits. Big mouthfeel without being too syrupy, nice lasting coffee finish. Delicious.

4.5
brewtalita (348) - Prague, CZECH REPUBLIC - APR 22, 2017
Motor oil black, no head, no bubbles. Aroma forest fruit, cocoa powder, vanilla and tobacco. Palate medium, no carbonation. Taste rich and complex, roasty and fruity notes. Salt, umami, smoke and premium dark chocolate all over the mouth, some black currant and a semi-dry finish. No alcohol in taste. Great!

4.3
rusos (782) - Stupava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - APR 16, 2017
Bottle, many thanks to Gurthnar. Black colour, no head. Aroma is complex. Roasted, chocolate, wood, chery, warm cocoa, noble alcohol. Taste is roasted, barrely wood, tobaco, cheries in chocolate, noble alcohol. A bit salty. Maybe a bit licorice. Very complex. Brutal. Very Good.

Lilja (3541) - Malmö, SWEDEN - MAR 23, 2017
Flaska några år lagrad, tappad 15/3/13, flaska nr: 8121 av 9972. Smak och doft av mörk choklad, mörk torkad frukt, soja, svarta vinbär, körsbär, sherry, fat med toner av lakrits och kaffe. Fruktig, något sträv, lagom sötma, fortfarande mycket alkohol, något obalanserad, lätt kolsyra och beska.
