Cletus (6354) - Connecticut, USA - OCT 7, 2007
Bottle that’s been sitting in my cellar for about 3 years. Pours dark brown with a faint light brown head that doesn’t last. Smells of molasses, licorice, sweet chocolate, earthy. Tastes earthy and boozy with some caramel and syrup qualities. Some dates peak through eventually but not as exciting as some of the others tried alongside this.

BVery (6222) - Burnsville, Minnesota, USA - FEB 2, 2012
UPDATED: JAN 1, 2014 Bottle. Very deep mahogany pour with a monster foamy tan head. Aroma and taste of chocolate, dark fruits, licorice - pretty sweet tasting. Medium slightly oily palate.

Ernest (6218) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAR 24, 2006
Head is initially small, frothy, light brown, fully diminishing. Body is dark brown. Aroma is moderately malty (molasses, cereal, roasted grain), with light notes of prune and alcohol. Flavor is heavily sweet. Finish is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Medium to full body, syrupy texture, soft/lively carbonation, lightly alcoholic. Pleasant but simple aroma, just too darned sweet to drink.

larsga (6206) - Oslo, NORWAY - NOV 5, 2007
Small offwhite head. Dark brown barely translucent body. Sweet massive licorice and malt aroma with chocolatey notes. Sweet, mild, rounded licorice taste with vague fruity banana notes. Dry roasty aftertaste. Very nice! (0.5l bottle at RBNAG’07.)

arminjewell (6175) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - FEB 25, 2011
Pours black with thin off white head. $1.99 for a 500 ml, so overall this was a nice surprise. Aroma had notes of chocolate, some dark fruit, and a touch of coffee. Taste is some cocoa, dark fruit, some slight vinegar, and a slight sweet toffee notes. Good stuff!

after4ever (6127) - Brier, Washington, USA - DEC 8, 2009
500. Pours black. Dense, creamy, billowing tan head that falls quickly to sloppy loose foam and dense sheets of tan lace. Big roasty sweet milk chocolate nose, a little bit of coffee and malt sugar lurking around the edges there. Creamy medium body with soft carb. Chocolatey mid-palate, again with bits of coffee, malt sugar, and now bits of roast knocking around. Mild earthy finish. Nice, if a bit unspectacular....the amount of flavor here for 9.4 is really a waste of potential, harmonious though it be.

blipp (6111) - Newark, New Jersey, USA - OCT 2, 2012
Bottle. Pours near black with a beige head. Sweet and lightly roasted malts, just a hint of soy sauce, and a quick roasty finish. Not bad.

HogTownHarry (6101) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - JUN 20, 2006
UPDATED: JUN 21, 2006 Bottle (500ml). Shared with blankboy and tupalev, blankboy’s bottle. Deep brown, average head. Roasty sweet oily aroma, nutty and a bit cola-like, grainy on warming. Taste is similar, oily, a little too extract-y- just okay. Light body, oily and bitter, burnt sugar aftertaste, nutty - decent, not great.

KnutAlbert (6093) - Oslo, NORWAY - JAN 2, 2007
50 cl bottle. Red black ale with milk chocoalte head. Rather sweet, with manilla and molasses. Some roasted bitterness, too, but too sweet for my liking. Some warming alcohol in the finish.
