Tap at the brewery. Poured a deep mahogany colour with a big frothy tan head. The aroma is big malt, fruit and alcohol. The flavour is medium to strong bitter with a huge roasted malt, liqourice, fruit and alcohol palate. It’s a super rich and very heart warming beer. A king amongst beers for sure!

CapFlu (4714) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 9, 2013
(33cl bottle) Courtesy of Blomster. Pours a thin beige head and a deep brown body. Smell the Wild Turkey in this, good malt base. Flavour of gritty coffee, very boozy and vanilla. Cocoa beans. Good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Sarlacc83 (1165) - Portland, Oregon, USA - SEP 5, 2013
11.2 oz bottle. A: Pitch black with a very faint mocha head. Has great legs, though. N: Rich mocha/dark chocolate covered espresso bean. Heavy amounts of vanilla/caramel/bourbon/oak. Some dark fruit. T: Lots of bourbon. Quite sweet with oak acting as balance. Some moderate bitterness. M: Oily, and medium-heavy body. Alcohol is very well-hidden. O: This is far better than the regular version. It really is just about everything you’d want in a barrel aged stout. Plenty of flavor showing through, everything in coordination...I wish this didn’t cost so much or I’d buy a case.

Embrouille (2831) - SWITZERLAND - SEP 3, 2013
UPDATED: SEP 4, 2013 Bottled 33cl. A huge amount of vanilla throughout. Full bodied. Hints of aniseed. Remarkably smooth. Pronounced warming sensation on the swallow which leads to a dry peppery briny finish, reminiscent of vanilla, nasturtium and cocoa powder. Wonderful.

A dark brown to black colored beer. The downside of this beer is the foam, because there is none. But the smell makes up for that, it is amazing. In the smell there is coffee, alcohol, bourbon, wood chips, some hop and yeast. It is full bodied beer, with a low carbonating. It is a soft and silky beer, where the alcohol is very present. In the taste there is first coffee bitter, but it evolves to Milk chocolate. Further in the taste there is Bourbon and wood chips. The aftertaste is very pleasent, soft stays long enough. It is dark chocolat and light bitter. A very special beer!! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Better than many one of my new top ten. Most would overlook this unassuming black and white bottle and that is unfortunate. More like this please. Malt, chocolate, coffee, winter spice, dries fruit, black licorice, smoke, whiskey, phenol, nice mouthfeel. This one has everything.
