Scopey (8455) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 12, 2012
From bottle. It pours jet black, with a thin dark tan head. The nose is sweet vanilla, coconut, chocolate, roasted malt, bourbon and wood. The taste is roasted malt, toasted coconut, chocolate, rich-roast coffee, bourbon, vanilla, oak, dark fruit, warming alcohol and toffee. Full body, fine carbonation and luxurious mouth-feel. Well balanced, smooth and tasty.

Bottle to oversized snifter (thanks hubsluvsbeer). Looks good; pitch black with thin lacing. Smells great; malty and boozy. Tastes great too; much like it smells. Nice on the palate too. Excellent stuff!

Marsiblursi (3045) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - MAY 26, 2012
(Bottle) Pitch black with a small dark brown head. The aroma holds boatloads of bourbon (butter vanilla, woodshop and coconut) and roast (dusty cocoa, dark creamy chocolate, oily espresso and new asphalt) up front. Undertones of brown sugar, maple syrup, chilly, cinnamon, vanilla and dried fruits (prunes, figs and sweaty raisins). Resinous, earthy and some citric hops. Brutal and fat nose. The flavour is medium sweet, medium to heavily bitter and light to medium acidic with notes of fiery bourbon, aggressive black roast and brutal hops. Undertones of spices, dark fruits and brown sugar. The mouthfeel is oily, round and sticky with a light tart sting from the hops. Light carbonation. Lingering aftertaste of bitter cocoa, resinous hops and mild spices. Full bodied.

BeerCast_Rich (1903) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAY 7, 2012
[bottle courtesy of cgarvieuk] Deep viscous black beer with very little head. Swirls about like the best single malt (albeit a black single malt). Aromas of coconut, and sweet malty bourbon. On the flavour – all kinds of things – sweet cocoa, chocolate, nuts, chipotle, oak. Smooth and thick. One to savour [22042012]

Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - APR 22, 2012
In bottle, thanks Craig! Pours a black colour with a lacy tan head. Aroma of coconut, roasty malt, dark chocolate and alcohol. Similar flavours with mild carbonation and an oily mouth-feel. Bourbon and alcohol linger nicely.

Bottle at cgarvieuk’s - thanks! Deep black/brown viscous pour, thin brown head. Big vanilla oak nose, bourbon spiciness, fudge, some deep fruits too. Big rich chocolate front, warm alcohol, big bourbon spiciness, just a subtle hint of chilli coming through, nice roasty backbone as well with a long warm finish. Nice.
