gEUS (1057) - Linden, BELGIUM - JAN 26, 2014
330 ml bottle shared by Mark Strooker at Sloshfest. Pours pitch black, small head. One of the most refined vanilla and oak aromas ever had. Pity if the lack of carbonation

Aroma is very strong and rich. Smokiness,caramel,molasses,fig,smokiness all here. Taste is a rich fruitiness with plum and raison with a roasty maltiness. A tad of alcohol bite but not much for a 10% beer.Appearance is black with a head thwt retains poorly.

From a 33 cl bottle shared at the March 2014 DC RB gathering. Pours black with a tan head. Aroma of licorice. Flavors of licorice, roasted malts and coffee notes. Medium heavy body, soft carbonation. Boozy finish.

Westchesterco (951) - mclean, Virginia, USA - MAR 9, 2014
From a bottle at the rb tasting it is a dark brown color with a slight head. The aroma is of licorice and the taste is of coffee that resonates of licorice. It is an amazing beer!

Bottle. Pours black with a fizzy brown head. Aroma is nice base H&V with some smokey whiskey notes, sweet chocolate, sweet ripe fruits, vanilla and woody notes behind. Pretty nice Aroma yo. The taste reminds me a lot about H&V too.. Lots of roasted notes, liquorice, and darks died fruits but also some vanilla and some more alcohol woody notes behind. Not a turn off at all. The beer carries the 13% very well. Lower carb would not hurt anyone though :). All in all - This is gawd stuffz!

Vestergaard (373) - Aarhus C, DENMARK - AUG 1, 2014
33 cl Bottle. Pours pitch, heavy black with a brown, short lasting head. Aroma has both bourbon and smoked whiskey notes, butter, vanilla, heavy roast, baked banana, syrup, salt, burned sugar. Taste is yummy! Lots of vanilla, espresso. Sweet in a fruity way. The alcohol is definitely there, but it adds complexity and body to the beer. Speaking of, the palate is overall pretty nice, but the carbonation is a little too high imo. One of the better variants!
