espenra (994) - Kurland, NORWAY - MAR 17, 2012
33cl bottle at Håndverkerstuene. Batch 057. According to the bottle it was bottled on 2021-07-20, but I’m going out on a limb and presume this is is the best before date. Pitch black colour with no head. Aroma is laden with vanilla, roasted coffee, malts and alcohol. Some cocoa. Flavour is sweet at first, but the alcohol, cocoa and coffee soon takes control and stays and lingers a long time.

Habanero (4026) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK - MAR 17, 2012
UPDATED: APR 8, 2012 Bottled: Pours black with a 1 fingers high brown, short lasting head. Nose of dark malts, vanilla and alcohol notes. Markedly sweet flavor with brown sugar, vanilla, roasted malt is present as well, dark fruits, coffee, chocolate and alcohol. Full bodied, creamy to oily texture and flat to soft carbonation. Ends up more dry with an alcohol bite.

I tasted this great beer last night. At such high price, my expectations where high. The beer lived up to the reputation of being a good beer. Lots of smell , great dark taste with hints of licorice. This is a beer for the special times.

magdalar (516) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - MAR 5, 2012
33cl bottle from Hopduvel. Pours black, with a lively brown head that dissipates quickly. Smells of dark red berries, caramel, roasted, soy sauce, brown sugar and malt. Tastes of an excessive sweetness, somewhere between a very oversweetened coffee, and bordering to the point of tasting like soy sauce. Full bodied. Oily texture. Soft carbonation. Finishes cloyingly. I want to like it, but really, it’s _way_ too sweet right now. Maybe it’d get better with age, but I’m not entirely certain it’d turn into something I’d love.

mcberko (14401) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 19, 2012
12 oz. bottle, brought back from the UK by the amazing Matts_Property, pours pitch black with a few light brown bubbles and essentially no head. Extremely deep, rich aroma of brandy / port, rich caramel, sweetened chocolate / fudge, espresso, rich roasted malt, dark fruits like raisins, light soy sauce, lots of sugar, and booze. Flavour is no less rich and complex, with the aforementioned liqueurs, fudge, plums, raisins, quite sweet malt, and booze. The ABV is insanely well-hidden underneath this complex dessert stout. Quite sweet, though never cloying, with mountains of depth. Extremely delicious and enjoyable.

abemorsten (3565) - Mosterøy, NORWAY - FEB 16, 2012
Shared 330 ml bottle at Cardinal. Black body with clear brown edges. Light brown rim. Viscuous liquid sticking to the glass. Booze, dried dark fruits, brown sugar, roasted nuts and dark chocolate on the nose. Most inviting. Thick, oily texture and smooth to drink. Full bodied andd alco warm. Rich flavors of sweet liquorice, roasted nuts and coffee, port, ash and cocoa. Fantastic!

pantanap (3366) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 15, 2012
12oz bottle. Thanks to timo... Pours a soy saucy at first with lesser intense reddish brown edges and topped with a skimpy light beige head... Deep rich chocolate and roast, booze. A touch of saltiness comes through late with a subtle whiskey spirit... Flavors are extremely sweet with a long lingering late. Chocolate booze and roast in the flavor. Rich and sweet without too large of a body. Boozy and warm without being too thick and cloying. A semi-resilient level of bitterness on the backend to boot.
