Berghoeve Zwarte Snorre
330 ml. bottle @ Beerlovers Bar. Dark brown to black, big dark mocha head. Nose is so black liquorice, umami, syrup, herbal, plastic. Taste is so heavy herbal, black liquorice, bitter herbal, plastic. Body is black liquorice syrup. Not a bad beer but such a Dutch beer really given their inexplicable obsession with the weirdness that is black liquorice.

Berghoeve Onruststoker Barrel Aged Ledaig Whisky
330ml bottle while watching I, Daniel Blake. From trade with MonsterMagnet. Many thanks chap! Pours a hazed amber, good white head. Nice smoked ham in the aroma. Taste has a nice smoked character with a well-integrated soft, earthy nuttiness from the rye, some fruity marmalade hints. Can’t detect much Whisky influence at all, but still a nice smoked beer.

Berghoeve Zwarte Snorre Barrel Aged Caol Ila Whisky
33cl Bottle shared. Appearance: Pours a pitch black with virtually no head. Aroma: Huge amount of peat, with a bit of wood. Taste: Follows the aromma a lot of peat, a bit of iodine and wood and only a faint of the original liquorice beer. Solid balance in case of sweetness and bitterness, but it’s a bit to much peat. Just below a medium body, soft carbonation. For peat lovers, serious recommended, for the rest it’s a bit too much.

Berghoeve Zwarte Snorre Barrel Aged Bruichladdich Whisky
Bottle 0.33l at home, Nivala. Received from Ratebeer swap (I think it was from MonsterMagnet). BBE 3/2017 ("old" but I don’t see that as a problem). Colour is deep and clear dark brown with very small brown head. Aromas and flavours: Dark chocolate, coffee, deep dryness, some alcohol, whiskey, wood, peat and roasted malts. Mouthfeel is pretty heavy, little bit of attacking. Condition is IMO very good. Whiskey barrel aged beers are not my favorites but this one has some good dry deep elements.

Bottle with tderoeck and JefVerstraete! Deep and dark chocolate brown. Smells like a really nice and aromatic milk chocolate. Taste starts with lots of milk chocolate and a hint of espresso with a smooth whisky finish. Quite boozy in the end, though.

I may be a sour beer fanboy but this is the best low abv beer I have had a chance to drink. Lightly tart and fruity, red fruit dominating

Berghoeve Zwarte Snorre Barrel Aged Bunnahabhain Whisky
33 cl bottle @ home. Pitch black color, pours like motoroil. Light brown head with just a 1 bubble layer retention. Aroma’s: roasted, droppig, light soy sauce, maybe a hint of peat, whisky. Retronasal it’s sweetish, chocolate, light drop/licorice, alcohol, subtle whisky. Flavor is moderate sweet, chocolatey, light roasty bitter. Warming alcohol. Above medium bodied. Low but prickly carbonation. Finishes chocolatey and with hints of wood. Barrel might be a bit too subtle, I don’t get much of it, although the wood sense seems to be getting stronger in time.

Bottle 33 cl. Pours a very dark opaque to brown with a small beige head and an aroma of funk, roasty malts, sweet chocolate, fresh roasted coffee, oak, licorice, vinegar, herbs and nutmeg. The taste is slightly sweet with a dry and sour finish, surprises me!

Berghoeve Brewlab Series 1501 Coffee Stout
Bottle 33 cl. Pors a very dark reddish brown with a very small white head and an aroma of black coffee, roasted malts, cocoa, dark chocolate, and rye bread. The taste is light to medium sweet with a dry finish. And I thought the claim they used local coffee was quite funny, I’m pretty sure there’s not such a thing as local coffee in the Netherlands.

Berghoeve Zwarte Snorre Barrel Aged Bowmore Whisky
Bottle [probably from trade with bierkoning, thanks!] @ home shared with Inoven. Opaque black color, average sized brown colored head that lasts for a decent while. Aroma is malts, dark pure chocolate and peat. Taste malts, peat, brown malts, nicely (malt) bitter. Perhaps - and actually I strongly suspect that- it’s my hayfever preventing me from smelling the level of peat in there, but I really like it now. Well done Jurgen & Geralda, cheers!

Berghoeve Zwarte Snorre Barrel Aged Bunnahabhain Whisky
Bottle [from trade with bierkoning, thanks!] @ home. Opaque pitch black color, medium sized light brown head that lasts for a short while. Aroma is a bit faint, I only get soft malt notes and some alcohol from the whisky barrel aging. Might be my hayfever though preventing me from accurately interpreting the aroma. Flavor is malts, dark malts, whisky, initially a sweetish hint, but soon malt bitter and after that liquorice and whisky influences take over. Aftertaste: long duration of the bitterness, medium duration of the whisky however it does leave my mouth kinda dry for a reasonably long time. Body is medium, texture quite oily, carbonation flat to soft. Could have used a bit more carbonation imo. Nice though, slow sipper.
