Alpha10 (830) - Ontario, CANADA - MAY 8, 2015
UPDATED: JUL 5, 2015 2015/05/08 - Pours a dark brown cola colour with a thin, khaki head that quickly dissipates. Aroma is sweet; molasses, brown sugar, chocolate, vanilla, coffee and hints of licorice. Taste is chocolate, vanilla, coffee and spices. Mouthfeel is chewy and thick with average carbonation and a dry, warming (slightly boozy) finish. Finish is a little medicinal. Pretty good brew. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone Nordcore (1642) - Lyngen alps, NORWAY - APR 29, 2015

330ml bottle from Systembolaget Kiruna, provided by djoeye. Finger-thick tan-coloured head reduced to a naked surface. Spotty lacework. Pitch black body. Roasted malts and grainy chocolate on the nose. Well blended taste of chocolate, liquorice, figs, and vanilla. Long-lived roasted ending with dark fruity hints. Hidden alcohol. Fits the season nicely (Tromsø 13.02.2015). Listigovers (1312) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 1, 2015
Too bad this poured without much head, pure black. Strong aroma of caramel and slight nuttiness. Flavor is similar to aroma, roasted flavor, bitter with good rich full bodied mouth feel. Slightly chocolaty, no alcohol bite, but warms you up nicely. Great! craftbeersweden (702) - SWEDEN - JAN 26, 2015
