Yorker (993) - Herning, DENMARK - OCT 2, 2013
33 cl bottle @ home. Pours black with some sediment and a tan head that leaves a little lacing. Aroma and flavour is roasted malt, chocolate, liquorice, and a little whisky with a slightly bitter finish. ABV is very well hidden.

Bottled. I got this beer from MrHangover. Many thanks! One word: epic! This beer is liquid chocolate. The alcohol is present and warming. A delicacy!

kappldav123 (4582) - Nordhausen, GERMANY - JUL 3, 2013
On tap at CBC 2012. Beer in the glass deep black, small head. Chocolate-malty aroma. Starts earthy-malty, strong, soft chocolate notes. Finish warming-malty, a bit alcoholic, but well balanced. Great beer!

Wonderful aroma and flavor. Then the long aftertaste of coffee does not do this beer worse. Cruel beer should be enjoyed. Follow me @ Kung av l / King of Beer @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.

sir__v (464) - Lille, FRANCE - MAY 13, 2013
Color: strong dark black beer with no carbonization and medium brown foam. Smell: cognac, wine, malt complexity, brown sugar, sugar cane and small alcohol nose. Taste: strong malt taste with good bitterness and grapes taste. Aftertaste: a really small alcohol taste with nice malt and caramel taste.

caesar (4715) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - APR 30, 2013
Bottled, febr 2012. Black color, medium lasting brown head. Aroma of chocolat, coffee, bit grainy, hint of grapes, molasses. Apart from the barrel aging, it does have some similarities to a certain Double Oatmeal Stout. I noticed on the label there should be some barrel aging, although it was hard to find out what kind. Not bourbon or peated whisky, more mellow and now that I see ratebeer, its speyside whisky. Ok, fair enough. In taste its quite dry, some wood and quite boozy. A bit too boozy actually. I can recall I said that about the H&V misto as well, but this one has aged for over a year, so it cant be that its too fresh. Its just too boozy.

50belair (1850) - Florida, USA - APR 24, 2013
Bottle courtesy of Colin. Dark brown pour with a tan head. Whiskey aromas. Effervescent and maybe a little over carbonated. Dark roasted malts, whiskey, and coco notes. Good lacing and mouthfeel.
