Idiosynkrasie (4911) - 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 (3954) - 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.

mR_fr0g (5356) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 14, 2013
Cask at gbbf 2013. Aroma is oak booze and whiskey. Choc and a touch of higher alcohol. Opaque black with a reluctant tan head viscous with big legs. Flavour is big on the oak and booze. Some vanilla. Finish is tangy berry. Warming alcohol. Too much barrel for me

jmgreenuk (5802) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - SEP 10, 2013
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!
