mile (3201) - Helsinki, FINLAND - AUG 4, 2013
Bottle. Very dark brown, very small and fully diminishing light brown head. Full, malty and sweet aroma, lots of roasted malt and coffee, light salty licorice, some vanilla - oak. Body is full, malty and sweet flavor, lots of coffee with roasted malt and light licorice, some vanilla and light alcohol. Finish is average to long, malty and sweetish, coffee and lots of roasted - light burnt malt, faint licorice and light some vanilla, light alcohol. OK burnt - roasted IS, bit too much coffee - bit too sweet. “Create a hype - use oak".

Bov (9960) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - JUL 28, 2013
from PiBar - black beer with a little yet long lasting dark beige foam; solid aroma of bourbon, caramel and vanilla; decently smokey; velvety palate, very sweet and with a robust malt backbone; a solid bitterness makes feel its presence quite late but lasts for long in a bourbon-like, vanilla and honeyish aftertaste; some residual sugars and a warming alcohol touch - beautiful

fiulijn (15436) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 28, 2013
Bottle from Pibar, Lausanne, bottled 30 jan 2013
Inpenetrable black, with brownish small sized creamy head. Mild aroma, some roasted malt, cardboard; light bourbon; light animal character too. It has the correct carbonation level, with a round and smooth mouthfeel; the usual excellent use of malt provide a strong flavor of roasted malt and chocolate, with moderate sweetness; the liquorice touch is quite strong, it’s also quite salty; finally some nice notes of vanilla; strong bitterness; faint sourness from the dark malts in the final.
Very good beer, not very cohesive though.
