gEUS (1583) - Linden, BELGIUM - OCT 7, 2013
330 ml bottle at home - 2013 batch. Also had it on draft during the BBF2013. Pours pitch black. Small beige lingering head. A full intensive nose of dark chocolate, brownies, vanilla, cinnamon, oak and plums. Medium body, high on the alcohol esters, taste is liquorice and soy sauce. Finish is chocolate bitter and some blueberry fruitiness...

Bottle shared with EricTeusink. Bought this through craftshack.com to get a top 50 beer and it did not disappoint. Nose was big boozy of beautiful bourbon awesome. The booze was not so prevelant in the taste, but bourbon, vanilla, bold malts dominated with some known oak. Great stuff.

VsXsV (3126) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - OCT 6, 2013
Draught at Stockholm Beer and Whiskey Festival 2013. Opaque black liquid with small tan head. Aroma of chocolate, licorice, dark fruit, dried fruit, wood, bourbon and light vanilla. Taste is light to medium sweet and light bitter with notes of chocolate, licorice, wood and raw sugar. Full bodied with low carbonation. Really nice but I prefer the Misto BA and really the non BA version.

UPDATED: JUN 8, 2014 Äpple i doft (?) Känns som att något är fel. Ifrågasätter detta och bartendern smakar. Ska tydligen vara så här. Jag är fortfarande tveksam. Viss krämighet i kroppen men på det stora hela inte speciellt bra. Högre förväntningar på en så högt rankad bira. -- Kul att få höja den här. Förstod att något var fel första gången. Tap på Monks café Struise. Fruktig med tydlig bourbon. Fatet har bidragit tydligt. Möjligen är den i tunnaste laget. Viss strävhet.

Hel & Verdoemeniksen kalkkunalla höystetty versio on mustan puhuva ja sen vaahto on kaunista beigeä. Tuoksu on viskinen, paahtunut, kahvinen ja lakritsinen. Maku on lakritsinen, tuhkainen, viskinen, paahtunut, katkera ja kahvinen. Suutuntumaltaan olut on veikeän liukas ja öljyinen.

Idiosynkrasie (5335) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - OCT 1, 2013
330ml bottle [11.0% abv]. Pitch black colour with late awakening, thick, firm, creamy, long lasting, well lacing, brown head. Slightly restrained, all the more complex dark malty aroma has notes of milk chocolate, dark chocolate, oak, leather, liquorice, vanilla, treacle. Taste is complex dark malty, some sweetness, treacle, vanilla, dry notes of oak and leather, very cautious hints of warming alcohol. Long lasting finish, very oily texture, silky smooth palate, soft though minimally prickling carbonation. Menno is still improving - but perfection must be close by.

Uhm, yah. They just kill it every time. Pretty sure I rated the base beer over a 4, and this is a no brainer. Big and bold and everything I ever want from a beer like this. FUCK MY MOUTH WITH FLAVOR PLEASE, thanks.

PhillyCraft (4541) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 14, 2013
12 oz Bottle. Pours black with large khaki head and nice lacing. Aroma was my favorite part of this brew with cookie dough, milk chocolate, roasted malt, fudge, vanilla bean, and bourbon shining. Flavor is more roasty and complex with wood and light char but mostly bitter and dark cocoa. Other notes of oak, molasses and fudge. Medium to fuller body with light to average carbonation and velvet soft mouth. These guys craft stouts exceptionally well, this is just another example. Proost Meno.
