hopscotch (11030) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAY 17, 2012
Bottle Pours black with a huge, frothy, cappuccino head that never fully dissipates. The aroma is straight-up caf con leche accompanied by a big hunk of fudge. Very, very nice. Full-bodied with a silky mouthfeel and dancing carbonation. The flavor is of unsweetened dark chocolate, espresso and a touch of carbonic charcoal. Finishes crisp, burnt, moderately bitter, and then presents a lingering, spicy dryness. Borderline world class beer. Terrific for a Schwarzbier. Bottle generously provided by ElliesBrown. Zacks good people!

olio (10066) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUN 25, 2014
65 cl bottle. Bottled on 22.10.2013.
Pours dark red, almost black color with a small head. Very malty on the nose, roasty, some wooden notes, dark chocolate and some faint smoky notes. Malty and roasty flavor also, dark chocolate, dried fruits, some faint hops. Very pleasant and balanced, yet another success from Westbrook. The half year age doesnt really feel on this one. Nice.

phaleslu (10018) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 19, 2012
Draft at Charleston Beer Works. Pours an opaque coffee brown with a big frothy tan head. Aroma is massive chocolate and nuts and not much else. Maybe some earth and toast. Flavor hits the same notes. Medium body, moderate carbonation that fluffs in the mouth a little. Toasty. Rich. Tasty.

Skinnyviking (9514) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUL 1, 2012
Bottle. Very high and long lasting creamy light brown head. Pitch black body. Spicy coffee barley malt aroma. Strangely the first impression is of citrus. Second impression is choccolat, roasted malt and hops. Apart from that the beer is having a lot of carbonation and a long and very pleasant hops finish.
