Splitenz (370) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 23, 2014
This is a killer beer. It is awesome! Coffee, licorice, burnt malt, bitter, grassy hops, chocolate, and even some hints of citrus. I mean, come on, how can they make this beer and not have it near me at all times? Torture. If anyone wants to get me a Christmas or birthday present, this’ll suit me fine.

Keg at Witterfest (Fano meet the brewer), King William IV - 20/08/12.
Dark black with a thin tan head.
Hoppy nose, sweet malts, coffee and caramel.
Tastes as nose allied to grassy tones, chocolate and pine.
Medium bodied with a bitter dry finish, I really got this one! nuplastikk (6373) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 18, 2012
Tap at Birreria Paradiso Georgetown. Deep thick brown black. Massive steady rusty beige head. Big chocolate caramel aroma. Massive, rich, roasty chocolate.stout, this is great. Big cocoa notes. Really nice in that it isn’t overbearing, this is way more desirable to drink than an Imperial Stout. No booze even with the formidable ABV. A complete pleasure. World Class.

Tap @ dronning Louise. Pitch Black with a small long lasting beige head. Aroma is: lovely sweet liquorice, dried fruits, nice grassy and fruity hoppy aroma as well, earthy chocolate, dusty, oak and sweet vanilla, dark caramel, lovely smooth complex aroma. Medium
Mouthfeel, smooth with a kick of crispy hops. You get the roasted fruity sweet and earthy chocolately notes first. Liquorice, and some coffee. Then the hops hits you with loads of spruce, resin and pine. Grassy notes, orange peel and peach. Ends dry with a lovely mix of sweet and bitter grapefruity notes. A lovely complex marriage. Drinks very well

Draught @ Pikkulintu, Helsinkicubs (10677) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUL 12, 2012
Pours pitch black with a large foamy brown head. Aroma of roasted malts, licorice, grassy hops and chocolate. Taste is roasty and bitter with notes of grassy hops, dark fruits, chocolate and loads of licorice. Finish is dry, roasty, almost burnt with licorice and grassy notes and a long lasting lingering bitterness. Tasty, balanced and quite bitter stout. Quite similar to Plevnan Siperia, which is one of my favorite beers. This one is not as perfectly balanced, but still very tasty.
Tap @ Fano. Black appearance with a dark brown head. Quite roasty malty, dark chocolate, mild coffee aroma with a touch of vanilla. Very nice, roasty, thick dark chocolate malty, lightly smoky, burnt coffee flavor. Very nice brew. Dedollewaitor (16237) - Odense, DENMARK - AUG 17, 2012
