sebletitje (7801) - Enghien, BELGIUM - JUL 19, 2015
33cl bottle as Dog B. Brune foncée, col crémeux blanc-cassé. Arôme au bouquet prononcé de malts, grillé, caramel, et plein de chocolat, l’épicé du piment perce bien. Palais est sec, fruité noire avec un petit résiduel de sucre candi, chaleur venant des piments sans être surfait. Chocolaté est en fin de bouche. Le côté champenois de la levure se ressent par son profil rappelant une quad belge, notamment dans l’effervescence ressentie.

It’s nice to actually box this off in an enforced Garvie Gauntlet - Cheers Craig. A fair few bottles and only one I’ll probably open before too long left - this is fading fast in terms of ABV and heat - the draught antics that was on at Cloisters is many dreamy moons ago...

Thick, dark ruby red - no head and thin but thickset lacing. Rich - oddly coconut sweetness in the nose now, no heat and a thick milkshake roast nose. Odd clean nappy plummines. Thick set but very smooth, rich spiciness and a vibrant. Vinious fruitiness, dark cherry and then a big peppery smash. Finishes slow, muddy berry and a mire of sweet floral and coffee. Linger was smooth, reassuring and little bit more gritty spice. Still good, still special but nothing as throttling.

Pours black with no head. Aroma is vanilla, chilli. Taste is very smooth; vanilla, coffee, chocolate, cocoa and slight salt. Leaves a cocoa lacing on the mouth. A hint of cheap cider in the background

Pours deep dark brown with very thin tan head that quickly disappears. Nose is chocolate and. Aromas are roasted malts, coffee, chocolate, dark fruits and chili. Low carbonation, full body.Long bitter and spicy finish. Very aromatic and complex beer, well-balanced, with a great mouthfeel.

Theydon_Bois (12744) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - OCT 13, 2014
Bottle split at CBC Islington, massive thanks to Fergus for bringing this one out on my 40th, 11/10/14. Black with moderate tan spotting and edgework. Nose is big roast maltings, dark chocolate, figs, molasses, earthy notes. Taste comprises rich roast, coffee tunes, dark malts, brown sugar, boozey notes, dark fruit rinds, light spice. Medium + bodied, fine carbonation, sweet roasty close with a peppering of spice. Decent impy, drinks well below its ABV - which may have dropped off a little, but has held up pretty well.

BeerViking (3175) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 11, 2014
Bottle, oily black with a gravy and old leather nose, smooth and syrupy, with a rich spicy cocoa and roast beef body. Strangely delicious.

Bottle 330ml. Pours opaque brown. Thin quickly dissipating tan head. Aroma is chocolate, dark fruits, caramel and more sweet dark chocolate. Taste is chocolate, burnt caramel, coffee and a strong roasted malty backbone. Slight chili burn but not as much as I thought, the alcohol warmth is stronger. Very creamy and smooth. Really great beer, although the alcohol is very present. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Lagrad 4år. Delade en flaska med Wihlan. Chilin träder fram i aromen, hel del sötma. Smaken är söt och chilin kommer tillbaka i slutet av smaken. Mycket mörk choklad och kaffe.

Fantastisk!!! Svart som natten och med en härlig arom av chokladkaka och kaffe med en hint av chilli. Smakar mörkchoköad och chille. Chillin har lagt sig så det är en mycket trevlig smak. Fantastisk!
