neongolden (1784) - Linköping, Sweden/Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 8, 2017
(On tap @ Mikkeller and Friends, Copenhagen, May 11/17) Pours black with a tan head. Notes of dark chocolate, pretty rich sweeter dark malts with moderate to high roast, whiskey, peppery rye character, light vanilla, soft dried fruit and coffee notes, woody, with a finish that is nicely bitter, slightly burnt, lots of rye whiskey character, roasted, lingering chocolate as well, with a long aftertaste. Fairly full-bodied and oily with soft carbonation, bare touch of alcohol. Really nice rye BA stout, conveys the barrel character, I thought the roundness of the two bourbon variants were slightly more appealing but this is quite good.

Palme (4816) - Bergen, NORWAY - MAY 11, 2017
On tap @ Mikkeller & Friends. Near cola black in the glass this. No head just a thin film clinging to the sides. It smells really good. Deep dark chocolate, quite sweet, lots of sweet licorice and cocoa powder. A little alco dunsty in a good way. Whisky woody. Nice smelling. Tastes superb. Roasted and really woody charred. Throat burning at first. Chocolate thick all the way. It’s full-bodied, nice and oily in the mouth and it’s just below average on the prickling carbonation. Whisky and wood wet rocks, lots of licorice. Delicious. 11.05.2017
