minutemat (1765) - Ford, Shropshire, ENGLAND - OCT 24, 2014
330ml bottle, thanks to Benzai. Pours black with minimal tan head and almost no carbonation. Raisin aroma. Taste is silky liquorice and dark fruits. Nice but didn’t exactly blow me away.

tastybeer (1739) - Bloomington, Indiana, USA - OCT 23, 2014
Bottle. Near black pour, tan head. Excellent retention/lace. Aroma of caramel, prune, brown sugar, dark fruit, cola. Taste is very sweet, molasses, cola, prune. Palate is soft, sweet finish.

PapaSkeetSkeet (817) - Corvallis, Oregon, USA - OCT 19, 2014
Darker-than-cola brown with caramel-colored, 2-inch, moderate-fine head that sticks around. Some dark dregs at the very end of the bottle, which is attractive itself. Aroma is monstrous raisin, like a big 2-pound canister, just cracked open, Some pine, pineapple, and candy. Smells chewy (tastes chewy too...) Body is thick, syrupy, with a cool carbonation that is medium-coarse and soft on the palate. Flavor is raisin syrup, bit of herbs, and some burnt toast. Not as complex as the aroma, but the carbonation kicks in at the right time. Very nice

DroolYeast (248) - Aalborg, DENMARK - OCT 16, 2014
Draft @ Basement Beer Bar in Aalborg. Aroma of dried dark fruit - prunes, plum (It reminds me of some dessert my grandmother used to serve). Very dark brown colour with small off-white head, virtually none lasting. High sweetness, light bitterness. Full body, thick slick texture, light+ carbonation, finish is long lasting with dried fruits. Very satisfying beer.

JanEric (1016) - Meppel, NETHERLANDS - OCT 13, 2014
Bottle from ’t Drankenhuys Amersfoor, 28/5/14. Black, no head. Choco malt and caramalts in aroma. Alcoholic taste, choco, some caramel again. Flat, sweetish. heavy. Not that special, too sweet and too much caramel.

ABS (491) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - OCT 9, 2014
Bottle from Systembolaget. Dark brown. Lots of brown head. Licorice, coffee, chocolate flavour. Bitter with some sweetness. Slick, just below medium body. Low, but fizzy, carbonation. A bit too much licorice in my opinion, but none the less a good beer.

adamnowek (140) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - OCT 9, 2014
Smells a bit like sherry or cognac. Pitch black, almost no head. The alcohol is really well hidden, considering the strength.

Renobob (665) - Besançon, FRANCE - OCT 7, 2014
Bue en bouteille de 75cl. Bière très foncée, sans mousse. Très peu de CO2. Beaucoup de grillé, de malts torréfiés, de café. Bière lourde au palais, grosse corpulence et grande longueur en bouche.

kbudd19 (646) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 4, 2014
Bottle. Thick dark brown pour, beautiful creamy white head with light bubbles. Aroma, very sherry port and like, raisins, dried fruits, caramel, a bit of oxidation (2 and half years old). Taste, sweet up front (like a dbock) very sherry like, a bit oxidized, but tasty.
