curdy (7) - Lodge Park, Worcestershire, ENGLAND - NOV 12, 2014 does not count
Super strong toffee, demerara sugar aroma with some coffee. Jet Black appearance. Sweet malt taste and warm alcohol feeling. Full bodied and delicious. Maybe a bit aggressive for the newcomer, but if you love your strong stouts and imperial stouts, you will love this offering from BBF.

Pudding (183) - Birmingham, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 16, 2014
500ml. Poured almost black with tan head. Aroma of coffee and chocolate. Taste: intense coffee and chocolate. Palate: smooth, medium-bodied, lingering aftertaste. Overall: a superb flavour experience. Well-crafted.

jmgreenuk (4798) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - OCT 2, 2014
Bottle from Cotteridge Wines, Birmingham. Poured a clear dark brown with a thin bubbly off-white head. The aroma is least, light malt. Very Benelux! The flavour is moderate bitter with a light fruity, malt light liqourice, hop bitter palate. Medium bodied with average carbonation. I guess I was not hugely impressed as I live in the Netherlands and I think i’m tiring of Belgian yeast.

FatPhil (9509) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUL 19, 2014
500ml bottle (Birofilia2014, Zywiec) (6:4:6-:4:11=3.1-)
Simple roast aroma, sweetish. Flat, black. Beany grains. Covers 7.5% well, but is dead. Beany and a bit of veg, no thanks. The nice black colour is the best aspect.

BeerViking (2643) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 9, 2014
Bottle at 7.5%, near-black with a caffe crema, nose is chocolate with hints of caramel, tart red fruit and apple. Heavy bodied with a strong dry bitter edge, notes of cocoa, old leather, tobacco, coffee, burnt dark chocolate, and a little spice. Dry-bitter yet faintly syrupy finish with hints of espresso and black treacle.

tomekk1978 (544) - Ząbki, POLAND - JUL 9, 2014
Barwa: ciemno brązowa, nieprzejrzysta nawet pod światło. Piana beżowa, drobno pęcherzykowa, niewielka i prawie natychmiast opadająca. Pozostaje jedynie przy ściankach, po czym także zanika. Aromat: czekolada, nieco ciemnych owoców, prawdopodobnie za sprawą belgijskich drożdży, co upodabnia to piwo nieco do dubbel-a. Następnie melanoidyny, orzech oraz nieco alkoholu. Smak: słodowy, ewidentnie pełny. Początkowo słodki, jedynie minimalnie kwaskowy z wytrawną i nieco alkoholową końcówką. Znajdziemy w nim akcenty czekolady, kawy, spieczonego ciasta, orzechów i delikatnie owocowe. Powyższe piwo pokazuje nam co można zrobić ze stoutem i za co tak bardzo lubimy jego wzmocnione wersje. Za ich pełnię, konkretny i bezkompromisowy charakter. Piana mogłaby być, co prawda bardziej obfita i trwała, a smak nieco bardziej wyrazisty, ale moim zdaniem i tak warto, zwłaszcza, że cena przyzwoita.

thegoslow (2) - Newcastle Upon Tyne, Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - JUL 7, 2014 does not count
Aroma is chocolaty and spicy. Quite heavy bitter taste, recommend sharing as finishing 500ml was tough. Another great beer from BBF though!
