The first tastes are boozy, but also chocolate, bitter, licqour, little smokey, some ruby red, but the taste develops and after half a bottle (room temp, at home), it kicks in properly: wow. This is amazing. It seemed out of balance. But then it somehow seems to be together. ---Rated via Beer Buddy (iOs)

Drank a 2013 bottle with Kaspar 12-11-2015. Nice beer, very rich beginning, with lots of taste. Only the aftertaste is weak. But nice taste explosion in the middle. Too bad of the ’thin’ body.

Botella 33 cl tomada en el momento en el kraken el 14..10..2015. (r89). Embotellada 28..11..2013 para 10 años. Color negro intenso con espuma oscura poco persistente. Aromas y sabores maltosos tostados con toques de maderas y vainilla pronunciados y buena sensación alcohólica. Bastante buena con buen cuerpo de 11.3 vol y ligeramente densa. Para repetir.

bhensonb (12969) - Woodland, California, USA - OCT 13, 2015
Waxed bottle from Sterk in Amsterdam. Pours really dark brown with some really dark tan bubbles. For me the aroma is chocolate bourbon. Chocolate brownies. Full bodied. Flavor is chocolate bourbon vanilla, and suddenly there’s old wood. Kind of musty. But the chocolate bourbon is the main deal. And suddenly there’s prune. Chocolate/plum/bourbon! There’s an impression of heat, but in "flavor" not burn. This is very smooth and tasty stuff. There’s a bit of smoke coming forth now and then. Excellent.

Opaque dark brown with no head. Nice sweet aroma you’d expect from something barrel-aged, very pleasant. Sweet, then a bit oily, then a kick of sweet wine/sherry with a hint of candy sugar, with an undertone of bitter chocolate, ending with an alcoholic burn. It isn’t entirely harmonious.

uckelman (478) - Durham, ENGLAND - JUL 18, 2015
Pours opaque, very dark brown. No head. Lots of legs. Aroma is mostly alcohol and a bit of fruit jam. The smoked malts and the otherwise very vegetal finish aren’t very harmonious. Very sweet. Good try, but doesn’t work.

rikstar (1646) - NETHERLANDS - JUL 3, 2015
0,33l fles gedeeld met lion. Zwart met een bruine kraag. Smaak en geur met vingerverf en stroop cacao. Koffie in de afdronk. Niet echt geslaagd bier

olliejobbins (1525) - Dorking, Surrey, ENGLAND - MAY 19, 2015
330ml bottle. pours completely pitch black. Aroma is charcoal, smoke, incredibly bitter chocolate and something rather tart at the end almost akin to malt vinegar. taste is incredibly smoky. very alcoholic. almost sour it’s so smoky and dry/ash. not my thing.

Eructoblaster (3479) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - APR 12, 2015
Bottle - 330ml. Opaque black body with low carbonation and no head at all. Fantastic, complex malty/hoppy aroma with Bourbon, chocolate, oaky, and some subtle vanilla hints. Its well balanced taste carries oaky, plummy, and vineous notes. Ends with a long, robust, warming, bittersweet finish. Very enjoyable.
