Old notes. Bottle from Uba ja Humal, BB 06.2021. Very dark body, yellowish-tan head. Love the aroma, it's a bit strange to be honest, I kinda get the Earl Grey, but most of all it's really sweet and roasty. Tastes a bit more one-sided, sweet bitter chocolate and roasty, herbal and earthy. Body lightish to medium, carbonation with a tiny zing. Finishes very dry and a bit shallow. I quite like this. Marduk (8517) - Reval, ESTONIA - OCT 12, 2017

September 2017 - Tasting at One Canada Square, thanks to Frogus Name Withheld. As 'Lervig / Boxing Cat Norwegian Mauler Stout', 7.9%. Dark brown to black, foamy brown head leaves dotted lacing. Aroma is a mix of scones and lavender up front, moving to rye bread and air freshener and finally pepsi. Body is smooth with tingly carbonation. Taste is quite floral, jasmine, dusty cocoa powder, twiggy, cola, lightly astringent finish. Decent. (6-4-6-4-14=3.4) Leighton (22555) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 26, 2017

Thnx ben. Pours black, decent white head. Smell is biscuity, dark sugar syrup, though not too sweet. Toffee, aged dark chocolate. Taste is full, toffee, aged dark chocolate, mild distant coffee features. Liquorice, 'drop' , decent body and low carbo. I like it, even though the tastes don't get my preference, its a very well made beer with loads of complexity.
