Ughsmash (7124) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 7, 2013
750mL bottle. Poured near-black with a remarkably dark brown head.. looked quite imposing in the glass! The aroma picked up a hefty dose of raisins, molasses, and licorice with accents of coffee roast, herbal hops, and rye alcohol.. large and in charge. The flavor found mostly licorice and molasses at the core, along with a good hit of golden raisins.. oxidation and misplaced nutty roast laced throughout.. finished dry with powdered molasses, raisins, and roast. Heavy-bodied and very filling on the palate.. tangy and warm in the end, but the balance held.. very good overall.

Hansen (6572) - Assentoft, DENMARK - MAR 30, 2013
Black coloured. Light brown head, mostly diminishing. Dark aroma, roasted malts, dark fruits, soy-sauce, faint alcohol. FLavor starts sweet, moderate acid, finish moderate bitter, harmonic. Syrupy texture.

HopRedHead (344) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - MAR 30, 2013
Pours a thick black with a dark mocha head slowly dissipating. Coffee heavy nose with a conspicious bourbon aroma, also sporting relatively heavy dark raisin notes. Hint of soy. Noticed a coconut-esque sweetness in the thick, oily taste. Very smooth finish carried by a moderate sweet choc bitterness that balances the whole experience.

maneliquor (3065) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - MAR 30, 2013
UPDATED: AUG 18, 2013 Bottle from Mane Liquor. Wasn’t expecting a great deal from this but wow it delivered. A thick, sinisterly dark tan head sits stop the black body. Nose shows stewed dark raisins, almost rum like raisin notes. There’s coconut, powdered chocolate and a touch of soy sauce in there too. Raisins never overpower. Coconut and cocoa shine and are in superb balance. Smooth melted chocolate and a hint of coffee. Creamy mouth feel with light yet lengthy bitter sweet notes on the finish. Wow. Fantastic stuff. Wish I had another

Bottle from mane liquor. Jet black pour with an amazing tanned head! Aroma has powdered chocolate, coconut, hints of soy and dark raisins. Taste is incredibly balanced. Smooth chocolate and raisins combining exceptionally well. Loads of espresso coming through. Huge beer. Massive chocolate bitterness. Just struggling to put the glass down ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
