BBB63 (6509) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - JAN 31, 2013
Bottle and served in my Stone IRS snifter (and yes a bottle I did NOT get from Eric Starnes) : Pours basically opaque with a small creamy tan head, oily viscous legs and some lacework. The aroma has extremely heavy vapours of dark fruits (prune, plum , black cherry, fig) with luscious rum barrel character. What I like is I still get lots of the base beer character of milk chocolate, roast, char, tobacco, leather, tar and herbal hops. The taste is not quite the level of the nose with the heavy fruit, earthiness and barrel fighting off some oncoming sour’d twang. Sweet but never cloy, boozy but never over the top, woody but not tannic. Mikey Likey this a lot... Hopscotch why didn’t I get this from you ;-)

Countbeer (5907) - Best of E-Town mit 2 Brauhausen, NETHERLANDS - NOV 29, 2015
Bottle: 2011 bottle: Served in a Chouffe glass: Black beer a thin brown ring. Aroma is rum, meat, roast, sweat, alcohol, soy, dark chocolate, raisin, liquor, smooth and gets better and better! Flavour is deep roast with a serious but very balanced amount of rum. There’s also marzipan, raisin, bitter, dark chocolate, light soy, erc etc... Delicious! Aftertaste is bitter, roast, raisin, rum and dark chocolate. Low carbo, close to silky mouthfeel, full bodied. Taste lingers out besutifully, very nice beer!

markextrae (3199) - Maastricht, NETHERLANDS - JUL 31, 2015
Bomber bottle shared by a friend. Bottled in 2011. I hope this one hasn’t lost his pride yet. Poured a dark Black colour with a tanned ring on top. Nose of dark rum soaked raisins, earth tones, fainted cinamon, burned caramel, and some sweet bakers chocolate, some dark fruit notice, cherries, oak, and sweet rum, some sweet figs in the aftertaste combined with fudge and spices. I have no idea how this should have tasted fresh. But this one is still tasting Great! Cellared very well these last 4 years. The suprise of the evening

ThirstyBird (2516) - Berkhamsted, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 13, 2015
Thanks Roman! Pours a very dark black with a small rich brown head. The smell is licorice, super rich malt, dark fruit soy sauce. The taste is as it smells with some alcohol and a dry char ending. Full bodied with mild carbonation.

ej (1191) - Hauglandshella, NORWAY - NOV 26, 2014
Bottle from 2011 shared with BBGTC. Pours a menacing black producing a small, very dark tanned head. Aroma is marvellous.. Rich roasted malts, hints of coffee, allspice and chocolate. Faint liquorice notes as well. Taste is well balanced, roasty and semi sweet dark fruits /malts. Some bitter coffee / burnt grains. Some soy-sauce sourness, leather and slightly oxidized notes. Body is full, thick and oily texture and soft co2 levels. Awesome.

2011 bomber - super thick black pour with a thin head and not a lick of retention. Nose is heavy coffee, roast, and some chocolate. Taste follows the nose with some molasses and light sweetness. Booze has mellowed out some. Thick and oily on the palate. Good stuff.
