hopscotch (9242) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUN 17, 2008
Bottle... Thinkin’ ‘Bout Thirteen Hours O’ Drinkin’ (tew man wrecking crew)... This beer rocks!... Pours pitch black with a mid-sized, creamy, light brown head. Terrific retention. Chocolaty, coffee nose with clever vinous and dark fruit notes. Full-bodied and creamy with lively carbonation. Much better balance than expected. Slightly oxidized, but lots of roastiness and dark fruit. Perfect degree of lactose sweetness. Medium bitter, coffee and chocolate finish with only a restrained touch of cardboard-like oxidation. Big-time thanks go out to glouglouburp for providing this underappreciated gem!

Courtesy hopscotch. Pours black, with a foamy, pretty well retained light brown head. Alot of milk chocolate in the aroma, really nice though, not overwhelming at all. Got some good doses of dark fruit as well. The flavor was surprising because the expected sweetness was balanced out by a nice roasty character that wasnt picked up in the nose. Good dark fruit presence, along with some bananas lingered in the aftertaste. This was surprisingly very tasty.

KingpinIPA (841) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 26, 2008
Bottle via Glouglouburp. Dark color. smell of chocolate, hops, minor pine and coffee and sugar. Taste of chocolate, minor coffee beans, cream, hops and malt. A little too watery too. Smelled a tad bit better than the taste. Could taste copper and metallic at the end.

500. Thanks, Glouglouburp! This one had the "5" in "5%" crossed out with a black marker and replaced with a "9." Not sure when that happened, but, judging by the bite on the mid-palate, it’s probably not a lie. Pours jet black with a thick, surging, creamy, towering, bubbly, moussy dark tan head that really hangs around and around. Gorgeous. Harmonious nose of chocolate, very slight hint of plum, and a bit of black bread. Rich, creamy, medium body with well-placed soft carb. Chocolate, a bit of sugar, and a generically fruity note comprise the mid-palate. Mild finish. Not much complexity of flavor, but still very pleasing and drinkable. Good stuff.

probstblueribbon (2944) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 5, 2008
500 ml bottle from Trappe a Fromage, served at cellar temperature in a tulip glass.

App.: Deep brown-black with basically no light transmission, nice deep mocha head that fades fairly quickly and cleanly. Aroma: Lots of big, rich, deep, dark aromas of chocolate, some coffee, lots of molasses and black licorice, grape-like fruitiness, smells very sweet. Palate: Medium-ish body, fairly soft effervescence, a touch chalky. Flav.: Much like the nose, but a bit more subdued, plenty of milk chocolate with hints of coffee, lots of molasses, a bit of licorice and restrained fruits, hints of herbal minty greens; a touch of sweetness, but nothing like the nose would lead you to believe, a little bitterness and a bit of ashen dark malt that lingers with a bit of alcohol (approaching too much).

Where can I get one of these magical, crazy, beer-producing cows??

BeerPrince (1701) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 5, 2008
Dark brown with nice tan head. Aroma is dark malts and roasted bitter coffee. Flavour is coffee with a nice bitter and dry finish. Not overly thick but the flavour is roasty and enticing.

MJGG (951) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 13, 2008
Bouteille brune de 500 ml. Brassin de 2006, donc vieille de près de deux ans. Arômes doux de torréfaction. Robe noire très opaque, légère mousse mocha. Cette bière est très douce en bouche, avec une touche sucrée. La torréfaction est également très présente. En arrière-goût le houblon se manifeste, ainsi qu’une légère touche d’alcool. Une bière qui se boit très bien, l’alcool est très discret pour une bière à 9%.
