gunnar (5752) - Sandnes, NORWAY - JUL 30, 2012
Bottle from Brewdog online store. Pours black with a huge frothy dark tanned head. Aroma of charcoal, dark roasted, chocolate and a light whiff of whisky. Taste is heavy roast, dark sugars, warming marzipan and alcohol, smooth and thick mouthfeel, velvety,traces of roasted coffee, a lovely sipper, with enough complexity to charm me.

SimonRoller (391) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUL 29, 2012
Bottle, pours dark brown/black with small head. Aroma is smoke, some vanilla, very much whisky. You feel the 15%. Full body, soft carbon. High sweetness. Decent, very much of the whisky aging but I think the beer it self could be better. Wouldnt buy again since the high price,

larsga (6335) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUL 28, 2012
Medium brown head shrinks fairly quickly with a hissing sound. Opaque black body. Roasty chocolatey marzipan alcohol aroma with toffee and wood notes. Exquisitely harmonic and balanced. Dry-sweet alcohol roasty chocolate taste with toffee and vanilla fudge notes. Full body. Soft, smooth mouthfeel with considerable heat. Dryish chocolatey toffee and alcohol aftertaste with smooth vanilla fudge and roastiness notes. Beautifully smooth and drinkable, while full of assertive flavours. A real masterpiece. (0.33l bottle, wine monopoly, Vika, Oslo.)
