SHIG (3840) - Wasilla, Alaska, USA - OCT 27, 2008
Bottle @ LCRBM 08: Poured a thick black color with a beige to brown color head. The aroma is roasted malts, fermented fruit, spice, and chocolate. Taste was simply devine with a chocolate and roasted malt, there is a nice mix of alcohol and fruits. These off set the sweet and make it very well balanced and tasty for sure.

bierkoning (10843) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - OCT 27, 2008
UPDATED: NOV 3, 2009 I couldn’t imagine any other beer for rating # 5000. So here it is. Bottle, kindly provided by Menno. Dark chocolate, raisin, oak and plums in the aroma. Sweet raisinny flavor with porto, oak, plums, dark chocolate and fairly well hidden alcohol. Vanilla and hops in the aftertaste. The young girl (somehow I find Tsarina Esra a very feminime beer!) has developed into a beautiful, strong, well developed woman with a lot of power and complexity. I will probably never forget this beer for the rest of my life... Bottled: 2009 version. Bordeaux barrel and you can notice that! Vinous aromas next to the coffee, dark chocolate, figs, raisinny and coffee notes you will find in the ’standard’ Tsarina Esra. Low on carbon. Powerful yet deceptively drinkable. Some alcohol in the finish. Once again a magic liquid.

Ober (2812) - Bommelerwaard, NETHERLANDS - OCT 27, 2008
Bottle@LCRBM08. A black colored beer, with a thick foamy beige head. The aroma is gentle with roasted malts. There is chococlate with some coffee. Also hints of dark fruits. The taste of pure chocolate with a little bitter coffee. Dark fruits like overripe prunes with raisins. As aftertaste chocolate with prunes. Great beer.

yespr (33803) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - OCT 27, 2008
LCRBM08: 75 cL bottle, courtesy of Menno. Pours pitch black and with a dense chocolate brown head. Aroma is smooth and roasted, chocolate, wineous and spiced, very inviting aroma. Smooth and wineous flavoured to a dense roasted malt base with notes of chocolate on the back of the tongue. Nicely decending into the finish with a mild warmth and smoothness. btw: makes a fantastic blend with 3 Fonteinen Hommage :)

NoiZe (2323) - Amersfoort, NETHERLANDS - OCT 26, 2008
UPDATED: DEC 7, 2009 Tastingsession LCRBM08.
Black colored brew. Sweet aroma, bourbon, sherry, nice. Flavor is very smooth. Bourbon, sweet syrup, butter, vanilla. Ends with the tones of dark chocolate, some liquorice. Good balanced. I really love this beer. I wonder what aging can do for this beer. Going to drink it again on a lucky, lucky day. Tasted again at the first, great, Borefts Beer Festival 2009 @ De Molen. Just perfect.

JorisPPattyn (8232) - Ursel, BELGIUM - OCT 26, 2008
Small yellow-brown head over near-black beer. Fully estery, alcohol, brandy and lots of vanilla. Vanilla returning strong in the mouth, with sweet brandy, some liquorice, dark- and milkchocolate. Despite all these major flavours out in force, it keeps a really excellent balance. Full bodied, of course, with a viscous and creamy MF to boot. Beautiful beer - just beautiful.

fonefan (37673) - VestJylland, DENMARK - OCT 16, 2008
Cask (gravity) @ Great British Beer Festival, GBBF 2008, Earls Court, London, England SW5.
This to celebrate my rating #4900 on ratebeer. Clear dark black color with a average, frothy, good lacing, mostly dimimshing, beige head. Aroma is heavy malty, roasted, caramel, chocolate, cream chocolate, licorice, vanilla, alcohol. Flavor is heavy sweet and bitter with a long long duration. Body is full, texture is oily - creamy - syrupy and so smooth, carbonation is flat. This is a beer that Mrs. fonefan loves and me also. It is so powerfull and complex - balanced - impressive.. Very very nice .. It is not for lager boys.... ;o)) It was my first and last beer the first 2 days on GBBF, Mrs fonefan did not drink much else the second day ... ;o)) Lovely work Menno, you are one of the best !

SilkTork (5359) - Southampton, United Kingdom, Kent, ENGLAND - OCT 10, 2008
GBBF, Trade Day, 2008 Gravity cask (oak). Musty and musky - touches of warm plastic. Wonderful aroma. Warm, soft mouthfeel - very rich and coating. Warm treacle. A gorgeous beer.

Doppelganger (1388) - Dry County, Arkansas, USA - SEP 18, 2008
Giant oak cask, BSF at the GBBF. Shiny black, a bit of tan head. Very clean bright bourbon nose, french toast with a generous dose of maple syrup, mahogany. Buttery soft roast flavor, rummy vanilla fudge, chocolate cake. Thick and sweet, but not sticky. A proper Imp. (Thanks Tom, for the rest of your neglected glassful. )
