Tasting at Mes and Sims flat. Opaque dark brown beer. Crisp dry palate. Sourish brown malt with some fruit tang. Finishes dry and crisp with a little chocolate coming through and a little spice. Unusual oatmeak stout - no oatmeal smoothness. Decent though.

Bottle. Black with a pleasant welcoming aroma upon opening. Medium body which was more powerful than you would expect for its strength. Starts of quite dry but has a bitter finnish.Surprisingly complex and worth a try.

yngwie (16990) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAR 19, 2011
Bottle, courtesy of fonefan. It pours an almost black body, at least very dark brown and topped by a small, beige head. The aroma has chocolate, coffee, dried fruits and some burnt notes. Slightly milky too it seems. The flavor has burnt malts and coffee. Some chocolate and licorice too. Medium body. The finish is quite long and burnt, with some chocolate to mellow it. A quite decent one. 110319

MoritzF (9802) - Ottobrunn, GERMANY - APR 27, 2010
(bottle) Pitch black colour with a huge and brown foamy head, slowly lacing. Intensively malty, moderately roasted aroma with hints of liquorice, leather, chocolate and coffee. Quite sour flavour with a light bitterness, light to medium bodied with a soft carbonation. Roasty malty and berry-fruity taste with shy hints of chocolate and liquorice; sourish and slightly toasty malty finish. Deserves a re-rate. 11.XI.09

Quack-Duck (9392) - Down South, GERMANY - APR 20, 2010
bottle, bought at the brewery, shared with Allen. Deep black colour, creamy beige head, leaving lacework. Lovely nose of roasetd malts, caramel and espresso coffee. Astringent mouthfeel, only very shy malt flavours, rather dry, with hints of coffee and very dark chocolate. Certainly interesting and wel-crafted, but not my cup of tea.

Embrouille (2848) - SWITZERLAND - APR 19, 2010
Courtesy of Quack-Duck. It pours a pitch black beer with a beige head. Ship rope and candy in the nose. A tad too astringent. Poor palate. Cress and cocoa powder showing up. Beautiful lacework. Thanks a lot Quack-Duck!
