jbeatty (1022) - New York, USA - AUG 6, 2013
Bottle, thanks to Jeffo! 08/06/2013. Pours black, thin light tan head fades to hazy layer of foam on the surface, tight ring of lacing around the glass. Aroma begins with whiskey- vanilla, coconut and melted caramel- light toffee chocolate roast, fudge and booze-soaked raisin, light cherry. Taste is spicy caramel and whiskey, subtle vinous notes, cocoa dusting, darker bitter roast amid lighter fruit elements,vanilla hiding in the background. Thick body, definitely some heat but drinks well. Very cool, hope to have more soon.

Scopey (6833) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 4, 2013
Bottle thanks to Bruce - cheers! It pours near black with a small light tan head. The nose is earth, roasty, toast, milk chocolate, vanilla, toasted coconut, rocky road, fudge and treacle. The taste is rich-roasted malt, coffee, toast, earth, light spice, bourbon, brown sugar, molasses, warming, cola, burnt caramel and dark fruit with a dry, roasty finish. Full body and moderate carbonation. Good depth of flavour. Nice balance and rather drinkable.

Bottled. Pours opaque black with a small, beige head, leaving a fair lacing. Aroma of whiskey, roasted malt, plums, vanilla and dark chocolate. Sweet flavor that ends up with a little malt bitterness and alcohol. Full bodied, oily texture and soft carb. A great impy.

maneliquor (3110) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - AUG 1, 2013
Bottle cheers to Ranga Jackson. Pours thick as the night black with a small, densely coating khaki head. Heavy spotted lacing and good retention. Nose is quite smokey upon first sniff. As it warms it begins to open up with notes of light black cherry, aniseed, roasted coffee, touch of sweet peat - almost hickory smoke. Taste consumes you. Very well balanced for such a complex beer. Wow. The smokiness sits behind everything giving that little bit extra depth. Loads of powdered, heavily dark chocolate - almost salty and fills out the palate quite substantially leaving a dryness on the finish. Molasses/liquorice comes through with light raisin sweetness. Fantastic beer. No heat whatsoever. Drinks superbly. Would love to have it again
