Being a scotch drinker I really appreciated this. It didn’t just taste like beer extract, but like a complex scotch with smokey and hop flavors mixed in. Great job.

Bottle from my cellar consumed at Damico’s. Pours black with no head. Nose is big boozy tones, black strap molasses, chocolate cake, grain alcohol. First sip is huge bitter sweet chocolate, burnt grain, smoke and coffe grinds. Finish is the best with a warming mulled wine flavors. Giant waste of money.

Damico (2524) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 1, 2014
Wow, even huger than expected. More like a whiskey/eisbock but stout yeast. Pours dark unclear rich amber brown with no head and very little carbonation. Aroma brings sweet hot booze whiskey with sweet malts, caramel, and toffee. Flavor is like sweet whiskey with big alcohol notes on a balanced body for 32 ABV, syrupy but not took much.

Sampled from a bottle, I couldn’t drink a full bottle and this should be sold in a nip size. Very heavy roast and some smoke, which I like, but it is very thick and the roast so burnt that it is hard to drink. Really a few sips are enough.

Bottle at first "Er klopt iemand op de deur" tasting aka EBT3. Thx to everyone for sharing today’s beers! APPEARANCE: clear very dark beer, no foam. NOSE: very sweet, too much alcohol. TASTE: sticky, too much alcohol, alcohol burn.

Sample from bottle. @ gråsälstasting #4. Big thanks Jookos! Batch #906. Black color, no head. Hint of vinegar, chocolate, greek spirits. Long dark fruity, sweet aroma. Surprisingly drinkable.

Shared a bottle with friends. Deep brown almost black pour with a nonexistent head. Powerful aroma, alcohol and vanilla. Tastes is coffee, dark chocolate, vanilla. Alcohol content is present throughout the whole experience. Definitely a sipper not a gulper.

This is a heavy thick beer, you can taste the whiskey flavors, more similar to a fine port, if i had the money I would drink it in a port glass or brandy balloon after every meal. Tasty, strong and warming.

From bottle #908. Wow, this is a huge beer, well it’s kind of a beer. Huge very complex aroma that hints at how intense the flavours will be, but it lies, this thing grab you by the throat. Pours and looks like a port, thick with no head. The alcohol is very warming, ultra rich flavours keep changing as you sip. Its not an everyday beer but I liked it a lot.
