Nickls (1955) - Kingstowne, Virginia, USA - JUN 2, 2015
Bottle. Khaki head, mahogany deep body nearing on black. Lots of fudgy cakey chocolate in the aroma, vanilla, slight wood, and slight soy in the aroma. Savory soy flavored, deep bitter dark chocolate, earthy wood, and slightly sour acrid toast finish. Medium body with tingly carbonation. I can’t tell if this is lightly infected given the flavor, but the aroma seems really spot on.

MarcoDL (2789) - NETHERLANDS - MAR 3, 2015
Bottle. Black oily pour, small brownish head. Aroma of boozy apple, cacao, brandy and vanilla. Very full and rich taste of apple, vanilla, roasted malt, red fruit, a little coffee and some bitter hops and brandy in the finish. Thick body, soft mouthfeel. This is very good, amazing ba impy, somehow it really has a mediteranian touch.

Cerveza muy alcoholica tal como su estilo indica, al tirarla aparece bastante espuma pero desaparece rápidamente. En aroma y en gusto predominan los tostados de las maltas con el toque a brandy de la barrica

teddybeer (2702) - Paris, FRANCE - MAR 22, 2014
From my backlog. Tasted in Cervezorama Beerfestival. Black colour with an off-white head with short to medium duration. Aroma has notes of roasted malts, liquorice, some caramel and coffee. Flavor is dominated by coffee beans, black chocolate and roasted malts; with burnt caramel hints and good proportion of alcohol hidden by coffee notes. Alcoholic final very good integrated.

UPDATED: DEC 14, 2014 Catamos la nueva edición de la Black Block 9 Months Brandy Aged en botella en el Fes’t-hi de Singlot-Vilanova i la Geltrú. Estratosférica....nivelón...aún por madurar y acercarse a la perfección....pero en estos momentos da y mucho. Notas marcadas de brandy maduro, tostados, café mezclado con licorosidad de Ron muy añejo, ligero toque achocolatado. En boca es una preciosidad y con una una largura, fuerza y persistencia en el postgusto poco habitual. Marca 12,5%Vol.Alc...en realidad son 13,5%Vol.Alc......el que consiga alguna botella que sepa que tiene una joya!.....molt Gran Aran!.SalUT!

Probada de barril en el Festival de Cervezorama. Aromas licorosos, torrefactos muy marcados. Espuma marrón bastante oscuro, no demasiado persistente, sabores licorosos, a café y frutos maduros en menor medida.
