Pours pure black with small brown head. Super chocolatey with hints of wood vanilla and caramel in the aroma. Tastes just as it smells very smooth and chocolatey with a mellow wood vanilla/caramel tone.

Gem from noize!!! Dark brown color with a small tan head. Amazing aroma. Bourbon, red wine, molasses, light espresso and chocolate. Flavor is a wonderful mix of wine and booze flavors with ash, tobacco, coffee, and some dark dried fruit. Amazing.

Miniature pony bottle (1655/2040) shared by daknole -- thanks, man!! Live rate. Pours murky brown with amber legs and no discernible head. Smells incredible -- red wine, oak, vanilla, and chocolate cake. Tastes of further notes of chocolate cake and barrel complimented by green chilies and raspberries. This is pretty special. Well done.

Köpt på Belgobaren i Stockholm. Bryggd 2009. Härlig doft av torkade frukter som sedan fortsätter i smaken. Knappt någon beska att prata om. Lite vinösa toner i smaken. Mycket gott!
