Bottle thanks to Glouglouburp. Ive been wanting one of these for awhile and was not even searching for it when it was offered. Thanks Dany! Pours black as used motor oil with a light-brown head. Nose is wonderful bold espresso and oak. Taste is "blow you away" good. Taste of espresso, dark chocolate and some oak. Mouthfeel is medium with slight alcohol. Fantastic brew. Would like to get my hands on another.

OleR (4767) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 9, 2011
Black waxed 18 cL bottle, purchased from de Bierkoning, Amsterdam. Body is the darkest brown, topped by a finger of tanned cream head. Smells nice and rounded. Milk-chocolate and soft biscuity dark malts. Subtle oak, faint vanilla, and suggestions of dark dried fruits. Medium to full malt body. Gently sweet, or maybe bitter-sweet, with a rounded roastedness. Alcohol well hidden, som warmth only. Soft and creamy mouthfeel. Sweet chocolatey, light oaky finish. Tasty and powerfull, yet fully balanced and harmonious. A treat!

Bottle from Mane Liquor. Pours as black as the night with a thin tan head which quickly bubbles away. Chocolate and wood are huge on the nose. Booze comes through in the background. Very fudge-like. Roasted chocolate and whiskey tones coming and going throughout. Fantastically smooth and no boozieness afterwards. Awesome beer

Thanks to Brad for sharing this little bottle. Bottle #599. Served in a Bruery tulip. Holy hell, the nose on this thing is fantastic. Poured black with a very thin mocha head that quickly went away. Nose is fantastic and so incredibly smooth. There is a very large chocolate presence and quite a bit of barrel character. There is a bit of booze in the background as well as some roasted malt. The taste is big on the chocolate and barrel aspects with a slightly-oaked finish. Good fudge throughout. No booze or heat in the finish. Medium body. Really, wow. Big, big fan of this.

Bottle at Max and Jesss housewarming, thanks to the sharer. Dark pour with tan head. Hoppy aroma tones, with chocolate, licorice, oak, and roasted tones. Flavors are rich with a touch of oak and whiskey, but mostly rich in roasted malt. Touch of warming, in a good way.

Nose is dark and roasty, sweet with dark chocolate, boozy cognac notes, Rather hot alcohol on the nose, but nice aromas - balanced alcohol, stout, oak. Pours black with dark brown edges, not much head at all, no lace. Nice legs though. Nice strong roasty dark chocolate notes, nice boozy cognac notes, oak. Smooth but sharp alcohol. Medium carbonation with a strong viscouous body. Fuck yeah the number of the beast bitch.

180ml, thanks Tom! Black with a small tan head. Bitter chocolate, licorice, touch of coffee, plenty of boozy cognac lingering about. The body is on the lighter side for a impy yet the carbonation is tight and plentiful. Apple, prune, raisins up font, cognac shows through a bit, moves into chocolate, licorice, touch of tobacco, musty oak under tones. Quite smooth and drinks easy.

Nip. Thanks patrik. Pours ebony brownish black with rubied edges. No head or lace. Big roasty earthy nose, plenty of coffee showing. Sticky medium body. Roasty earthy coffee body with just a little of that vinous liqeur near the finish. Sweet berried roast coffee finish. Delectable.

Bottle 180ml #203 @ Haandverkerstuene, Oslo
Pours pitch black with a small tan head. Aroma has notes of coffee, chocolate and licorice. Taste is medium to heavy sweet and light bitter. Body is full, texture is oily, carbonation is flat to soft.

18cl bottle poured into my Darkness glass, picked up in Gent...Dark brown pour with no carbonation, no lacing...Very strong aroma, lots of alcohol, heat of the cognac, char, and lightly bitter chocolate. Its ok, but Im not hopeful...The taste almost saves this beer, tones down the alcohol, albeit sill present. Wood on the finish and the feel if that makes sense. The more I drink the more the cognac comes out, makes this a really smooth feel and finish, but still alcoholy. Light coffee comes through to balance. I am not very familiar with cognac so its a little hard to judge this beer, as it is breaming with it in the aroma and taste. The more I drink though the more I like it, especially the cognac, makes me want to search out similar beers, however, to find more made with 40 year old cognac is going to be hard.
