Martinus (2996) - Baarle-Nassau, - APR 11, 2012
Jet black beer, slight tan head. Aroma of oyster sauce, roasted malts, ketjap, mocca, raisins and alcohol. Quite a mix. Flavour mostly sweet, malty, ketjap and molasses. Sticky mouthfeel, long sticky finish, notes of oystersauce, mildly astringent. Quite unbalanced, and slightly disappointing in flavour, but still a nice experiment to combine these three big stouts.
(From 33cL bottle, shared @ De Bierkoning, Amsterdam. Nicely packed bottle btw.)

MrFecesious (1040) - British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 15, 2014
2011 bottle. Thanks GothGargoyle! Pours a dense brown. Aroma of licorice, raisin, sweet coffee. Taste is super sweet, with a chase of bitterness. Extremely creamy, and sustained dry finish that is nicely balanced. 2013 bottle. More brown sugar, raw toffee aroma. The newer carbonation leads to a more bitter taste and abrupt dry finish.

gegwilson (1369) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - NOV 14, 2014
Bottle from Bottledog, King’s Cross. Pours inky black with a rapidly disppearing chocolate head. Incredibly rich and intenses flavours of chocolate, coffee, liquorice, vanilla, spice and warming booze. Starts sweet and finishes bitter. Full oily mouthfeel. A delicious sipper.

zacgillbanks (2444) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - NOV 3, 2014
15.2% bottle from Rehills, Newcastle. This jet-black beer pours with a thin creamy tan head. It has an initial super-powerful chocolate and liquorice flavour with roasted coffee, currants and cherries followed by smoked beech, leather and a creamy, fruity, powerfully warming bitter chocolate finish. Superb!

33 cl bottle @ home (15.2% version). Pours black with a tan head that leaves a little lacing. Aroma and flavour are roasted malt, chocolate, dark sugar, liquorice, dark fruit, and a little tobacco - with a bitter finish. ABV is well hidden.

Najlepsze piwo jakie piłem, do momentu oceniania. Pierwsze które dostało pełną 20 ode mnie. Piwo które rzuca na kolana. Bogactwo aromatów i smaków jest niebywałe. Odczucie w ustach perfekcyjne - gęste, smoliste, a przy tym bardzo aksamitne i gładkie.

Tinco (572) - Linköping, SWEDEN - OCT 14, 2014
Bottle from cellar, first batch. Pours a thick pitch black liquid with a deep brown head that fizzes away pretty quick. Aroma is complex with lots of dark fruits, dark chocolate, booze, wood, little soy, smooth, sweet. Smells good! Taste: soooo rich, very complex profile. Sweet with a well hidden alcohol for its %. Hints of raisins, chocolate, soy, figs, vanilla. Really good stuff and has held up well since I had it some years ago.

douglas88 (6236) - Portland, Oregon, USA - OCT 13, 2014
12 ounce bottle thanks to Christian. Pours a pitch black color, very viscous, a wonderful large brown head that quickly dissipates. The aroma is predictable huge for the ABV with smoke, molasses, dark fruit and sugars. The flavor is intense: sugary malts, coconut, oily, a bit of mango, huge coffee and vanilla. The super over the top sweetness is mixed with smoke and more tropical sticky elements. Quite good. Cranberries and mango mixed in tobacco and leather. Hmm, sounds like a metal band or a gay bar name. Anyway, it’s good. The heat and intensity is rough, so maybe a bomber would be a bit much. Maybe.
