COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Boiled for 20 hours to create an umami flavour. Umami is the fifth basic taste next to sweet, sour, salty and bitter. By doing so we have now a beer that’s very thick and oily with loads of roasted malts.

2010-08-02. Black body with a creamy brown head. Super rich flavour, fruity alcoholic character, notes of bourbon or brand but ultra smooth. Holy $#!+! Notes of chocolate liqueur or Baileys like flavours, mocha, alcohol is seductive and dangerous. 9+ Aroma is similarly rich, tangy dark fruit, subtle dark malt base, some sort of barrel/alcohol presence, vanilla notes. RICH. 9+ Super smooth medium to full bodied palate. Sufficient alcohol to be a kick in the pants but kind of awesome. I was lamenting the generous pour from the bartender on the first one, and then went back for a second after tasting it. So good. FONEFAN Masters Division Celebration, The White Horse, Parsons Green, London

MesandSim (7119) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 26, 2010
A Sim rate (tap at Copenhagen Beer Festival): Sharp, whisky aroma but with a creamy edge. Sweet brown sugar & coffee. Appearance is pitch black with a brown head. Burnt toast & roast coffee beans in the amazing flavour. It’s creamy coffee... not with skimmed milk as I make it these days, but made with half-and-half, how I no longer dare. So thick that it sticks to your palate. So, so good!
