Palme (4255) - Bergen, - OCT 9, 2012
0.33l bottle shared with The Tasting Crew. This is a clear dark brown one with a quickly sidesticking brown head. On the aroma I get a soft sweetness, some clear chocolate, soft licorice and not extremely much more to be honest. In taste its leather and licorice mainly that dominates. A bit of sweetness as well as a tad of milk chocolate. Its softly to average carbonated and it has a mild oily mouthfeel. It ends with a hint of roasted acidity. Interesting enough. 22.08.2012

aromat całkiem przyjemny, słodki, kawa z mlekiem. w smaku trochę wodniste, leciutko palone, sos sojowy. Najfajniejszy w nim jest pozostający smak na języku

Iznogud (2794) - CROATIA - AUG 18, 2016
On tap at the Lower Right, Tokyo. Pours dark brown with medium beige head. Malty, milk chocolate, cocoa, bit roasted, sweet. Short finish, and light even a bit watery. Not bad, but too light for me.

PotjeBier (2807) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - JUL 27, 2016
33 cl bottle @ home, a bit past the best before date. Black color. Beige head with little retention. Aromas of sweet chocolate, light roast, some berries. More roasty retronasal, mocha, red fruit. Flavor is light sweet, coffee-ish, roasty. Light bodied (almost thin). Short finish, light roasty. Quite nice actually.

invinoveritas (128) - Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - MAY 15, 2016
Pours a burnt cola with a restrained head. The initial caramel aroma is so strong it almost morphs into cheese, underlain by charcoal - changing later into brown sugar and mocha. On tasting there is an upfront dark bitterness, which surprisingly carries through on the watery palate. Coffee with an aftertaste of bananas. Interesting but maybe hampered by the low ABV.

visionthing (4868) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - APR 12, 2016
On tap at Hitachino Brewing Lab, Tokyo. Close to black with a modest, but lasting beige head. Aroma of roasted malt with some milky notes, dark chocolate and dark fruits. Medium sweet with a medium flavour intensity and a slightly dry and lightly bitter finish. Mild and easy to drink, not to exciting, but certainly decent.

adamnowek (1948) - Brussels, BELGIUM - FEB 19, 2016
Dark brown with a thin, mocha head. Aroma is lactose. Feels like a cola. Taste is sour milk. Not sure these will ever be my thing.

Sigmund (6884) - Tau, NORWAY - FEB 18, 2016
330 ml bottle, from Matkroken Stokka. BB date 01.2014. Black colour, large to moderate tan head. Aroma of lactose and moderately roasted malts, hints of chocolate. Smooth mouthfeel. The flavour is nice and smooth, with mild roasty notes, some lactose (but not too sweet), hints of mild coffee and chocolate. Pleasant and easy to drink. Might well buy again.
