Bottle in Rome. Thanks Alberto! Some/few soapy bubbles on cola-coffee black. Deep rum fruits. Heavy body, syrupy and rich Calvados, pear then lots of roast bitter malts. A bit of a path from first sweet sip to bittering finish. A very interesting beer that is in great shape. coffee and cocoa finish.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle shared by Rask0lnikov, thanks! Bottled 09.2013; 10.8%. Chocolaty, rummy, woody nose and flavour. Really sweet and boozy. Wow, really feels like it’s 16%. Strong, rubbing alcohol. No balance, really harsh. Vinous, sticky on the palate. Would be OK but the drinkabilty is horrific. I guess its peak is only coming or already past. Nirvana’s "Gallons of Rubbing Alcohol Flow Through the Strip" would go well with this. My notes end with a big "FUCK". Was a memorable experience nonetheless : )
