As with the Wild Turkey version, this one poured black, headless and thick. Similarly nice base of dark chocolate, coffee and roasty, fruity malt. The sweet cognac note is just wonderful and complements the stout very nicely. Taste seems sweeter than the WT version but it’s got a similar tannic touch in the finish. Lots of fruity dark malt, molasses and more cognac on the palate. Fairly thick. Low carbonation. Interesting and tasty stout.

Nip bottle with Black wax, picked up at Bierkonig. Pours a motor oil black with a decent beige head. Deep breathing aromas. Nose of nutty chocolates, roasted malts, and freshly brewed coffee,. Yummy taste. Big malts, sweet cocoa. black licorice, and slightly bitter hops. Rich and chewy. Oily mouthfeel with soft carbonation. What a nice brew. A nice bit of heat on the finish.. Bravo De Molen!

Didn’t think I’d actually get to try this one. Many thanks to Douglas88 for sharing this one. Pours a viscous coffee color with a trim beige head. Incredibly aromatic. Loaded with notes of cognac, cocoa, vanilla, and plum. Earthy malt on the palate balanced by the notes of sweetness from the aroma. Finishes a bit hot, but not overpowering at all. A great beer.

UPDATED: AUG 12, 2011 Tiny 180 ml bottle wax dipped thanks to Spencer. Pours a pure black color with light hints of brown and a medium brown head. A powerful nose explodes out; alcohol heat, cognac, cocoa, earthy chocolate. The flavor is certainly aggressive with heat, cognac, coffee, oak, but there is a large cocoa and earthy rich maltiness that provides a drinkablity. Very nice. Some bitterness in the finish. Damn good. Bottle number 400. The wax on this beer was very odd, it was sticky and malleable. like it had been heated.
