Rating #1462 - 11.02.2015 - On tap @sugarbowl Black as an abandoned murder scene that has been torched with kerosene. Aroma is heavy roast malt, espresso, molasses, oak. Taste is heavy on roast malt and coffee flavours, lots of burnt sugar, toffee, bourbon vanilla, blackstrap molasses. A beauteous beer that hits on all of my favourite things. #5whore

The bourbon, the smoke, the chocolate, all of it blends well in this dark beer. Hints of Worcestershire.

alex_leit (1745) - Minsk, BELARUS - FEB 15, 2015
UPDATED: MAR 6, 2015 33 cl bottle. 10.8% abv version (2014). Black oil with dark brown foam. Heavy and dense aroma of oak casks, bourbon, smoked bacon, coffee, port wine with bitter chocolate, rye bread, leather and balm. Very impressive and powerful taste, warming, old bourbon, porto, sweet coffee and chocolate, light oxidation, oak, leather, hop bitterness, it’s amazing stout!

Sampled draft @ Borefts 2013. Black with no head. Nose is huge sweet bourbon, vanilla, oak, hint soy sauce & roast. Taste is sweet bourbon, touch soy & berries, brown sugar, caramel, roasted malts, faint smoke & coffee. Creamy & flat. Nice but I liked the 2 other versions more.

Bottle at a camping in Hungary. Black pour, thick tan head. Aroma of licorice, chocolate, molasses, roasted malts, vanilla, leather and slightly spicy peppers. Flavor is thick syrupy bitter malts with a chocolate sweetness. Very nice balance, huge body and very smooth. Great brew.

Prokroustis (689) - Thessaloniki, GREECE - SEP 29, 2014
(10.8% abv bottle). Black body, minimal light brown head, with some uniquely thick lacing. Strongly enticing aroma with chocolate, mocha, caramel, as well as wood, honey and whiskey, sour cherries and vanilla. Full, heavy palate with minimal carbonation. Exceptional bittersweet flavour with dark chocolate, some coffee and peat, vanilla and licorice, all perfectly balanced, with a quite dry finish. Amazing.
