Short review due to rugby-related excitement/disappointment. Black, small white foamy head. Smell - smoke, chocolate. Body and cabonation are medium. Taste - more smoke and chocolate, semi-sweet, astringent finish. Good beer, enjoyed. Palme (4857) - Bergen, NORWAY - NOV 4, 2013
Sampled from a unknown-sized bottle @ Haandfest 2013. This is a near black one, no, let’s call it black and it has a nice lacing brown top that’s leaving some islands floating on top of the beer. Lots if dark notes in the aroma. It’s coffee bitter and loaded with chocolate paper! There is even a little bit of licorice here as well. It has a light oily mouthfeel and a average prickling carbonation level. Nice roasted profile all over this. Dark coffee, burned to the max, I get more chocolate paper, a roasted acidity and dark burned cake. It’s leaving the mouth with a dry feeling. Lots of flavor, enjoyable. 25.05.2013 Geiserich (4660) - Linz, AUSTRIA - NOV 2, 2013
Bottle. Black color, brownish creamy head. Aroma is full of burnt malt, roastiness, coffee, earthy, burnt oak barrels. Flavor is malty, sweet, with dark berries, dark chocolate, coffeee, earth and burnt wood. Roastbitter finish. Very good foreign stout. Steasy66 (1158) - Minnesota, USA - OCT 20, 2013
From bitter virtue. Not quite black with half finger tan head. Super roasty aroma, bit scared at this point. Very roasty flavor, slightly acidic, really smooth finish. I’m a bit love hate on this, hate it on the front of my tongue, love it on the back. Decent beer.

Bottle at home, 12th October 13. Lovely smooth stout, good carbonation, lots of cocoa, a little leather, and coffee. Tasty and lingering flavours Nocturne (2238) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - OCT 4, 2013
330ml bottle. Darkest brown shade with a light brown head. Powerful roasty aroma neutralised with something like a vanilla lightness. Taste opens with sweet milk chocolate notes before harsher roasted malt takes over. Finishes a bit dry. Very tasty and evidently well worked. jaghana (6364) - Strasbourg (Alsace), FRANCE - OCT 1, 2013
Bottle 33cl from Jan thanks ! A dark beer with medium off white head. Nose is on dark chocolate and dark coffee. Aroma is on the same with creamy body, light metallic touch, rich roasted body, slightly acrid at the finish with hay hops, alcohol is well hidden, a nice one. bergstaden (3332) - Røros, NORWAY - OCT 1, 2013
Roasted malt aroma with chocolate - Roasted malt body with some chocolate flavours along with some bitterness - finish is lingering roasted malt - this was good Lonick (2537) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - SEP 24, 2013
Bottle @home, pours as black as can be with a thick oil slick head. Sweet like a cake mixture in the bowl with dried fruits carrying the day, bitter on the finish, a very nice beer.
