Bottled at Man in The Moon, Stockholm. Very black, dark brown head. Heavy and inky. Sweet with loads of raisins and licorice. Inky and resiny, harsh and very aggressive. Massively full bodied, and completely derailed.

brokensail (16055) - Dublin, California, USA - SEP 25, 2011
A: The beer pours a very dark brown color, almost black, with a thin tan head. S: Roasted malt and chocolate are the initial aromas. There is a nice bit of licorice and molasses to it as well. Just a bit of booze followed by coffee, mild vanilla, and some rum raisins. T: A mild smoke flavor which might just be from the intensely roasted malt character. A mild booze flavor, dark chocolate, and miscellaneous dark fruits. A nice burnt sugar sweetness as well as some earthy hops. M: Medium bodied with a smooth, medium carbonation. O: The fruit and sugar notes were nice and took away some of intensity from the roast.

Schytz (19) - Aalborg, DENMARK - SEP 25, 2011
Aroma: Sweet, sweet chocolate, slightest touch of alcohol, vague raisins. Appearance: Pitch black, roasted head, no retention. Taste: Fine but not complex, raisins, sweet chocolate, some coffee, roasted malts, slight alcohol, but less than in the aroma. Palate: Medium mouthfeel. Judging from the look a little watery. Overall: Too pricey, not complex compared to the price. My least favorite from the series. Nice label though! Love the Dirac and Bohr tribute.

HonkeyBra (4036) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - AUG 18, 2011
UPDATED: MAR 8, 2014 Sampled at DLD 2011. Black pour with a deep tan head. Aroma of Brownies, baking chocolate, mild cake. Flavor is strong chocolate and roast, mild coffee. Delicious, yet subdued. Thick mouthfeel, nice carbonation. Pretty great beer, I’m pretty impressed. Again, I’m shocked by the depth of the malt component Cigar City lends to its beers.
