Fles gedeeld met lachneger. Pikzwart geen schuim. Aroma is zoet. Smaak is chocolade, koffie. De alcohol proef je minimaal door de zoetheid. Het is een mooi bier maar de zoetheid is te.

Poured from 330mL bottle [batch 060 bb 2015/03/23]. Black with tan head. Aroma of sweet malt and molasses, a bit of roast malt, mild chocolate, subtle whiskey. Taste has chocolate and roast malt with leather, a little licorice, and a mild kick of whiskey.

Lele (249) - Padova, ITALY - JAN 6, 2015
ASPETTO: nero impenetrabile, schiuma abbastanza fine, poco spessa e poco persistente, di color marrone. AROMA: gli aromi predominanti sono il whiskey, insieme al barricato e al cioccolato. GUSTO: il whisky si sente chiaramente, accompagnato da un ottimo barricato, cioccolato. Il tostato si sente un po’ nel retrogusto caldo e persistente. Si avvertono anche ciliegie sotto spirito. Carbonizzazione scarsa, corpo decisamente strutturato, denso, quasi masticabile. L’alcool scalda bene alla gola, ma non da minimamente alla testa. CONCLUSIONE: decisamente un capolavoro, una delle birre migliori in assoluto che abbia bevuto. Ogni sorso è una scoperta e un vero piacere. Calda, avvolgente, saporita, non stanca mai, dal corpo denso.

Percy0103 (262) - MEXICO - DEC 31, 2014
Reviewed on 14/09/14. Bottle, 330ml. An opaque beer with a small brown head that fades away almost completely after a minute. Aroma is of coffee, nuts, vainilla and sweet dark chocolate. Bittersweet taste that reminds me of chocolate and coffee. Rich and dense, with a milky and creamy aftertaste. Very drinkable, especially considering its high ABV. I couldn’t feel it. Great beer. Wow!

rikstar (1410) - NETHERLANDS - DEC 21, 2014
0,33l fles gekregen en gedeeld met Lion. Diep zwart bier met een kleine donker bruine kraag. Cacao en koffietonen met ook de zoetigheid van stroop en bruine suiker. Begint plakkend maar de afdronk is trekkend met houttonen maar ook verbrand rubber. Nice!

stuvetnz (9) - - DEC 14, 2014 does not count
Pours a smooth pitch black with no head. Initial thick malty aromas from slightly chilled developing through to subtle whisky peat as it warmed. Rich full mouth feel, lingering on the palate. Deep chocolate flavours. Great with desert

Lilja (2130) - Malmö, SWEDEN - DEC 11, 2014
Flaska från Stirchley Wines. Smak och doft av humle, malt, karamell, mörk choklad, torkad frukt som fikon och russin, vanilj, körsbär, marsipan, kanel, trä med toner av aska och tobak. Rund och len, viss syrlighet av ingefäran, fin bitterchokladbeska. Välbalanserad och fina smaker. Tipp topp!
