oh6gdx (26386) - Vasa, FINLAND - JUN 10, 2016
Bottled. More or less black colour with a small beigeish brown head, which leaves some lace. Aroma is cherries, some liquorice, mild toasted and wooden notes as well as some slight ripe fruitiiness to it. Flavour is ripe fruits, cherries, quite tart wood, some liquorice and mild roasted/toasted notes. A bit on the sweeter side of things. Whats not to like in a beer like this...

Ungstrup (36411) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - APR 18, 2016
A black beer with a brown head. The aroma has notes of wood, brettanomyces, and roasted malt. The flavor is sweet with notes of chocolate, roasted malt, smoke, and wood, leading to a dry roasted finish.

Leighton (20529) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 8, 2016
Draft at Copenhagen Beer Celebration 2014 - Session 4. Pours brown with a foamy, tan head. Nice stuff, with pleasant cocoa character, burnt marshmallows. Moderately sweet, with notes of dark bread. Medium bodied with fine carbonation. Nicely balanced finish, with further chocolate, dark malts, impressions of dark fruits. Lovely beer.

Bawelt (815) - Lyon, FRANCE - FEB 18, 2016
Trs bonne. Nez normment port sur le bourbon et la stout. La cerise est absolument absent. La bouche est bien plus complte et convaincante. Lattaque est franchement torrfie et enchaine de trs belle manire sur un bourbon trs franc et trs agrable. On sent des notes caramel qui adoucissent et quilibrent le tout. La cerise peut se sentir lorsquon bout un peu de mousse mais nest franchement pas prsente sinon. Trs bonne, un rien trop douce. On reste sur quelque chose dassez convaincant.

Palme (4484) - Bergen, NORWAY - DEC 22, 2014
0.33l bottle. This is a deep and dark brown looking one with a really nice dense lacing and almost everlasting brownish top. Smells absolutely lovely. Rich deep dark cocoa with sweet milky chocolate, lots of woody vanilla and fudge like brownies. Absolutely lovely. It has a almost cloudy feeling in the mouth this. Its not sweet or cloying at all, if anything slightly dryish but balanced as heck. Theres mineralish chocolate here, dry cocoa powder, some wood and a nice general toastiness all the way. A lovely lightdrinkable fruity stout creation Id gladly drink again. 09.08.2014

33 cl bottle @ VastActiv
Aroma has sweet cherry tones, some licorice and tart sherry tones. Flavour has candid sugar, some ripe fruits and berry juice. Too juicy but not bad still.
