Fules (831) - Gyöngyös, HUNGARY - SEP 15, 2016
Semmi hab, vörösbe hajló fekete szín. Csodás illat, csokis, vörösbogyós, markáns whiskys-hordós beütéssel enyhe karamellel. Pörkölt malátás, csokis, kávés alap, markáns whiskeys fedéssel, édeskés, erős gyümölcsös-piros bogyós és aszalt gyümölcsös beütéssel. Testes, enyhén kesernyés és szénsavas. Kissé alkoholos, de még ez is jól áll neki. Isteni sör.

OminouSC2 (466) - Mora, SWEDEN - JUL 4, 2016
Sweet notes of caramel from the first hit to the nose. Then you find a lot of berries, almost fruity in its tartness. Taste is sweet with layers of slightly tart berries that really binds it together. The alcohol is a bit too present. Really nice.

weordie (874) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - APR 5, 2016
Pours pure black with no head. The aroma is like a dark, stewed cherry and licorice. The taste is sweet cherry, smokey peat and a little earthy. There’s zero carbonation in this, I’m not sure if it’s how it was meant to be or if it’s because the bottle is a few years old as I’ve heard these bottles can lose their carbonation.

mecafilo (210) - Perugia, ITALY - DEC 19, 2015
Bottle @ home. Pours with a very dark reddish brown colour, almost no head. Aroma is very fruity at first (woodberries), then it gets very chocolatey (notes of vanilla and licorice, too); after tasting, quite evident notes of scotch; inviting. Taste is medium to heavy sweet, slightly bitter, quite sour (strange!). Light to medium body, viscous oily texture, completely flat.
