3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A deep dark stout with a super thick moka head. In aroma, bready chocolate, fruity esters, spices and that 18% alcohol. In mouth, a whallop of alcohopl attacks you, followed by sweet chocolate, dark fruits, caramel, hops, wow, its so intense and overwhelming, its unsettling. Not 100% sure if I like it...On tap at ChurchKey DC, Feb. 26 2010.

4.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
This is a beautiful beer. The aroma is milk chocoilate, berries, fruit. Very nice. The appearance is a deep black, tan head. The flavor is amazinfg, creamy milk chocolate, berries, booze. The finish is light hops, and a beautiful boozy warming in the throat. Medium body, slightly less thick than expected. A really great achievement.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, bought @ Ølbutikken, Cph.
Pours utterly, completely black with a fine, medium, creamy, staying head. Aroma does not have as much viniousness as I’d expected. Milky chocolate, light woody, some liqourice and sweet malts. There is an ounce of fruity hops in there as well. Medium carbonation, oily and a tad harsh mouthfeel. Flavour is sweet, sugary, some roasted malts, milky chocolate, some harshish alcohol. There is a bit of woody bitterness at the end, some light hops. It is probably too sweet and there is too much alcohol, but it still is fairly drinkable. Compared to for example Mikkeller X series or WWS, this is far better.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle thanks to the angryone. Jet black and jealous. Light tan head. The smell is apple skins, higher fusel alcohols, fruits, wine like, and wood. The taste is very appley, apples skins, wood, very hot alcohol.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
330 ml bottle. Dark brown with some big bubbled froth. Nose is chocolate, caramel and tart berries; musty and boozy. First sip and, yeah, this is a hot brew but surprisingly soft and silky with a tickling tingle. Tastes like a chocolate covered brandy cherry. Lingering citrus peel and pine. Akin to WWS but not as elegant.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Had this at Christmas after finding a bottle at an Off License in Norwich.
Pours Dark Brown with a small off white head. Didn’t expect a huge head from such a strong beer!
Smell is rich, malty chocolate with some vinuous winey notes, strong red fruit presence.
Taste is burnt malt, sweet with some bitter dark chocolate coming in, a little subtle hoppiness. Cannot tell the alcohol content.
An excellent beer, glad I saved it for such an occasion.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle@PreZBF. On the edge of drinkable. Not because it’s so bad but it’s just too much alcohol for me. Flavors, aroma’s and balance are nice but dominated by the alcohol too much. Nice try though. Make it 16% and I think I’ll like it.
