Silvan7 (668) - Samarate, ITALY - AUG 6, 2013
Bottle @ home. Profumo intensamente affumicato e torbato. Note di caffè tostato e alcoliche. il luppolo erboso è un sottofondo, non punge. Nera con riflessi rosso rubino, schiuma color cappuccino ampia e meno cremosa di quello che si aspetterebbe. Gusto caldo, deciso, torbato avvolgente. é delicata, con un finale lungo una carbonatazione medio bassa, non troppo corposa e calda/alcolica. Buona ma non eccelsa.

Got it in a bottle. Pitch black color with not much of a head. Aroma is full of whiskey, peat, and smoke. Same for the taste. Beer is nice and balanced.

2011, ik wist van te voren al dat ik deze wss niet zo heel lekker ging vinden, maar hij viel mee, wel een leuk flesje, donkerbruin/zwart bier, met een kleine beige schuimkraag, ruikt en smaakt rokerig, beetje vanille, turf, koffie

Bouteille 11,2oz (batch 015). De couleur noire-brune et opaque. Nez de malt fumé (tourbe, léger de fumée de bois et de cigarette) et rôti, légèrement boisé (fût de whisky), léger de fruits (fruits confits foncés), avec des notes d’alcool, de chocolat noir et de café. Moyennement ronde en bouche avec un pétillement doux ainsi qu’une texture légèrement huileuse et aux petites notes crémeuses. Goût de malt fumé (tourbe, léger de cigarette, traces de fumée de bois), légèrement boisé (fût de whisky) avec un léger goût fruité (fruits foncés confits) ainsi qu’avec de faibles traces de réglisse noire lors de l’entrée en bouche auquel se rajoute un goût de malt rôti avec des petites notes de chocolat noir. Parallèlement, l’on retrouve un léger goût d’alcool aux notes réchauffantes avec des notes de café et des traces de houblon herbeux. Post-goût long, léger-moyen amer de rôti avec un goût fumé toujours bien présent ainsi que des notes de chocolat noir et d’alcool boisé (fût de whisky).

Bottle to snifter. Best by 9/8/10. Consumed 5/12/13. Pours an opaque dark brown with a fluffy, bubbly beige head. Aroma is smoke, peat, chocolate, dark fruit, spicy, soy. Taste is camp fire, char, soy, barbecue, wood, molasses. Lots of smoke. Beautiful, dense lacing. Medium low carbonation. Rich, thick mouth feel. I really dig this. Not as aggressive as I had expected; some nice subtle elements here. highly flavorful and fragrant. Really nice.

11.2 Fl Oz. Bottle. Pours black, medium tan head, decent lacing. Aroma is quite smokey some malts, and I think some dark fruit. Taste is also very smokey, perhaps sweet with some malts and some whiskey notes.It’s good but it is also a sipper.
