Bottle, #1102, four years before bbd. Pours pitch black, with a finger thick, mocha head. Aroma is dark malts, with herbal notes, liquorice and heather, as well as wooden notes. Creamy body, with soft carbonation. Flavour is dark malts, camphor, herbal notes, and caramels, as well as liquorice, wooden barrels and caraway. Too hot and fresh, and will probably benefit quite a bit with some age.

JabeerWocky. Miedziane, prawie bez piany. Troszkę rodzynek, karmelu i wiśni w zapachu. Podobnie w smaku, półwytrawne, delikatnie winne, taniczne w posmakach. Średnio wysycone, nieco mdłe i alkoholowe, dość rzadkie w odbiorze.

Bottled from Systembolaget. Hazy amber pour, looks a bit oily, mid-size lasting white head. Sweet resinous aroma, sugary, boozy, earthy and leafy. Sweet and creamy mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Sticky sweet taste with pine bitterness, sugar, bread, resin, caramel and orange marmalade. Long bitterness in the finish. Overall too sweet, the big bitter bite in the finish saves it a bit.

HaandBryggeriet Raspberry Export Stout
W aromacie dobrze wyczuwalne maliny, palone słody, kakao. W smaku dość wytrawne z lekką słodyczą w tle i delikatną kwaśnością. Dominują raczej słody palone. Trochę za mocne wysycenie. Beczki nie czuć wcale. Dość treściwe i całkiem pijalne, ale nie porywa.

500ml bottle bought at Gulating Ølutsalg, Tromsø. Firm off-white head to a clear golden-brown body. Fair lacing down the glass. Modest aroma of citrus shells and apricot. Blended taste profile of ripe mandarin and apricot, lightly spiced. Satisfying dry, bittersweet tail. Fine bodied for the abv. Quite pleasing. (Shared with Snegurochka, TheCellarer and Finn, session in Tårnrommet, Tromsø 14.11.2017).

PREZENTACJA: ciemno brązowe z białymi drobinkami przy dnie, piana śladowa, ale długo się utrzymuje, nie oblepia szkła;
AROMAT: ulotny - suszone i przejrzałe brzoskwinie, wiśnie, winogrona, słodki karmel, po zabełtaniu na krótko wychodzi mocny choć nie nieprzyjemny alkohol;
ODCZUCIE: ciało wysokie, gładkie, nisko nasycone, zalepiające jamę ustną;
SMAK: lekko cierpki - czekolada, kwaśnawa nuta wiśni, drewno, wyraźna kakaowa goryczka, posmak czekolady deserowej i wiśni;
OGÓLNIE: niezłe piwo; wino nie wzbogaciło go jakoś szczególnie.

330ml bottle (?, ?) (4:3:4:2:8=2.1)
Rich orange, tight head, settles to a ring. Sweet salty aroma. Slickish palate. Sweet sour salty taste, maybe a bit lemony in the sourness. Terrible gimmick brew, no redeeming features here at all.

Mørk mørk brun med høyt mokkafarget tykt skum. Lukter nellik, vanilje, mørke modne frukter og trevirke. Fyldig. Maltig sødme, kandis, brent karamell, nelliken fortsatt tydelig, får noe julegløggfølelse etterhvert. Smaken fra fatlagringen er der, trevirke og vanilje. Lett alkohol utover. Middels lang.

Bottle. I suspect this divides opinion. Pours copper/russet with dense white head. Big caramel and deep orange citrus aroma. The taste is boozy, thick with dense tropical juice, caramel, pine. It's pretty bold on all fronts - suspect some will find it too boozy and brash. It's on the sweet side for an IIPA - but it's a full on ramped up juice laden twist on a British IPA. I like it.

Pour black as night and thick as motor oil. Nearly non-existent head that is very dense. Aroma is deep chocolate and molasses. Taste is chocolate to start with hoppiness building to counteract the sweetness. A very solid imperial stout.

Fruity aroma with passion fruit and gooseberries. Sweet caramekky taste with a rounding bitterness far back that grows in the finish. Too caramelly for my taste. Expected more from this.

Kwas zdecydowanie dla fanów ekstremów. Barwy czerwonej z niezłą pianą. W aromacie bardzo dużo malin, ale też lambicowe akcenty skórzane - dosyć subtelnie. Następnie w smaku znowu pełno malin, octowość, bardzo wysoka kwaśność, ale też spora soczystość. Brak tu trochę balansu, co prawda, ale cóż - ekstrema tak mają. Świetne!

Coal black liquid with thick nice beige head. Ok lacing. Looks nice. Decent intensity in the aroma. Medium to full body. Soft carbonation level. Pleasant and easy to drink. A bit oily texture. Chocolate, coffee, toffee and a fine fruity backbone. Nice tasty stuff.

Bottle shared at Van Moll Brewpub. Opaque black color, average sized brown colored head. Smell and taste malts, dark malts, some roast and some hop in the distance but the hops aren't pronounced enough imo. Pretty subdued hops imo. I like a black IPA to be balanced between black and IPA and this is too much black imo.

Bottled, from Systembolaget. Hazy amber, mid sized head. Fruity, resiny nose with some vodka. Sweet with full body and clean, sticky mouthfeel. Syrup, white bread and some grapefruit. White pepper and vodka sets in early. Resin tags along. Unpleasant throughout. Really has no positive sides. Just booze, resin and syrup.

330ml Bottle - Dark amber with a small head. Pine, caramel and grapefruit in the aroma. Fruity and moderately sweet taste with malt, caramel, pine and grapefruit detected. More like a barley wine than a DIPA.
