thirstyrabbit (1800) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JAN 9, 2014
Small bottle with a finger destroyer cap (is this a beach beer for some people?). Dark brown body, steady tan head. Aroma has sourish milk coffee and some light licorice. Oily mouthfeel, but the sourness is overpowering the roast. Hoppy but somewhat astringent finish. Too astringent and oily to be just 7%. Some more alcohol heat could provide balance and make it more interesting.

Bottle @ home. Aroma is deep roast, some chocolate and light vanilla, some nutty and malty notes in the finish. Flavour is creamy very roasty black malt, tons of liquorice, faint smoky note, light chocolate and vanilla. More roast, ash. Very burny and roasty this one. After a while its get a lot better. Very nice.

Botella de 33 cl. En casa 21-12-13 Sabores a tostados y bastante quemados algo especiados con algo de caf y cacao tambin. Cuerpo medio con espuma algo oscura persistente. Aromas tostados y maltosos muy especiados. No est mal, tal vez demasiado especiada. Segunda vez suene la tomo y no se s habr una tercera.

Bottle. Pours jet black with a smallish desert tan head. Carbonation is almost nonexistent. Aroma: Pretty straightforward, this one. Lots of biscuity malts, touches of coffee and dark fruits (chokeberry springs to mind), and a wee bit of booze. Taste: a really smooth entrance - more oven-cooked biscuits, some caramelized sugars and fudge. Finish is more rough, showcasing impressive, powerful hops. Aftertaste is prominently long and bitter Good beer! Hops are the strongest part of it, in my opinion. Love the cap, and really hope to try the BA version.

Oh this is good. A comment on the label/bottle itself first - I do like it when brewers can show some humour/individuality through the label. And the only bottlecap like it that Ive seen. Why arent there more like this? Pours an inky black with thin film of creamy head. Aroma of charred toast, espresso, and - Im never sure what fruit exactly it would be in a beer like this, but its...fruity. Taste is big bold, balanced. Mouthfeel is among the best there is. Finish is a touch alcoholic. Yum

Flaska. Mrkmrk brun med litet skum. Svagt av kaffe och mrk choklad men framfr allt rdvin i doften. Vldigt vins smak. Knappt att den mrka chokladen och kaffet nr fram. Dligt exemplar?

Anbefaldet p den sorte enke da jeg sagde jeg kunne gode limfjordsportner. Syrlig i lugt, men smagen er det ikke. En stille og rolig stout der smager godt af kaffe, fylde og alt det der skal til en stout, men Limfjorden, nej det nr den ikke....
