Palme (4634) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUN 27, 2013
0.5l bottle. Lovely pour on this one, it has a really big dark brown chocolate head thats leaving some lively lacing and is quite long living and the beer itself is a tone lighter than black, but Im calling it black . Looks really good, and I cant say anything else for the aroma. Lots of sweet dark mocha aromas with dark fresh grounded coffee, a strong milk chocolate sweetness like a chocolate gnash mixed with ice cream. Lovely. Yeah, this is really good stuff. Lots of dark roasted espresso tones, but not as overwhelmingly strong as an espresso. It has a good oily mouthfeel with a comfortable prickling carbonation level. You want a new sip right after youve set the glass back on the table, and thats often a good thing. Actually cant cant imagine how that should be done thing.. Rich roasted, not burned and it also has a slightly coffee acidic hint in the chocolaty finish. A delightful beer on a lovely day. 30.05.2013

larsga (7497) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 27, 2013
Big dark brown head. Opaque black body. Roasty earthy chocolatey aroma with spicy mineraly coffee notes. Dry-sweet roasty resiny earthy taste with grainy coffee notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, fluffy mouthfeel. Dry dark chocolate aftertaste with earthy mineraly notes. Nice, but perhaps a little low on flavour, and a little gassy. (0.5l bottle, wine monopoly, Vika, Oslo.)

Svart, Cappo, rostade toner. Tyckte den var rtt platt, hade velat ha den lite mer fyllig. Tyckte inte det fanns ngot som backade upp Cappon.
