Ontbeertaster (2345) - Ontario, CANADA - OCT 16, 2012
Bottle, pours a foamy thin black. Aroma is roasty and yeasty. The flavour is lot of funk, its like a sour stout almost, it is really quite yum

shoulderbroken (2202) - Tokyo, JAPAN - OCT 7, 2012
Bottle from Tanakaya. Unbelievable gusher, but there was a tag to warn me. Even so, wasn’t well enough prepared. Dark chocolate brown with massive golden bubbly head that diminishes fairly quickly apart from when pouring! Aroma is chocolate, boozy sharpness, creamy sweetness, classic alvinne aroma. Not that different from Morpheus dark as far as I can remember but maybe a bit drier and with some bitterness. Taste is nice. Chocolate, bit of mars bar. Initial boozy hit of sweetness. Finish is dry and a touch bitter, dark chocolate. Very full on. Ap 34 ar 9 t 9 p 34 o 16

rand (1299) - SWITZERLAND - SEP 21, 2012
Bottle 33 cl from Willems - Grobbendonk (B). Black beer with red-brown refections. Dangerous cause gushing like a geyser. It remains ... 1 dl in the bottle. Acid and sour nose, roasted malt, chocolate, dates. The taste is similar, well acidic, hints of dry fruits, small fruits, choc, vanilla, coffee and wood, Alvinne yeast. Brown of Flanders malted and sweetened. Only well because out of standard.

Enjoyit (3479) - Vadum, DENMARK - SEP 12, 2012
Reddish brown of color with a beige head. An aroma of sweet liqurice, prunes, alcohol and weak notes of chocolate. A flavor of sweets and liqurice.

illidurit (2172) - Petaluma, California, USA - SEP 3, 2012
Bottle poured into snifter. Deep woody brown with a fizzy tan head. Aroma is terribly metallic -- copper to be exact -- with hardly any beer character. Flavor is a big improvement: brown sugar and fermented red fruits, charred bread and burnt caramel. Dry finish. Not really that good.

Aniela (2462) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - AUG 26, 2012
33 cl bottle. Black beer with a small biege head. Vanilla, licorice, sweet, chocolate, plumsand raisins aroma. Simliar flavour but a bit to much alcohol flavour...

jonno (2345) - JAPAN - JUL 19, 2012
Super gusher...never seen beer so eager to escape it’s confines. At least the head is full and foamy. Soft spicy chocolate malt on the nose. A bit of a sour tang too. Good, thick body. Metallic tang, chocolate, cocoa and a little cherry tart . Slightly phenolic. Not much to recommend here, except the body.

Freakout (16) - Alaska, USA - JUN 19, 2012
Full on gusher....salvaged just a taste and it was metallic. Nose was wet galvanized nails. Very bummed as I was really looking forward to it. Lame sauce.
