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.

Koelschtrinker (17681) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 29, 2011
Intensiver und aromatischer Malzantrunk mit starken Schokoladennoten. Hocharomatisch, dabei ziemlich süß, was das intensive aber nur wenig röstige Malz ausgleicht. Recht intensiv, zum Ende trocken-schokoladig, angenehm. Intensives Erlebnis! 9/13/8/13//13

Happy 50th Birthday Fonefan!!. On tap at White Horse, Parsons Green. I have a feeling other people liked this more than me. I thought if anything it was just too big. Hot alcohol aroma. Lots of good choc, I mean thick Belgian choc. Maybe just a tad too intense and a too hot for me.

On tap at KŘ-10. It pours a more or less black body with just some dark brown notes around the edges. A brown head sits on top. The aroma is roasted and boozy, with chocolate and mocha, all well pronounced and integrated. That goes for the flavor too, there’s loads and loads of delicious flavors, mocha, chocolate, roasted malts and sweetness, and a nice boozy touch that deals with the sweetness. Roasted-bitter finish. Full-bodied, warming, sweet and dryish at the same time. A wonderfully complex beer, certainly one of my favorites from the festival. 100508

MiP (15296) - Sřnderborg, DENMARK - JUL 14, 2010
Draught at KŘ10. Sweet vanilla aroma. Black colour. Small stable creamy brown head. The flavour is sweet and roasted with a distinct vanilla note. Sweet port notes, a little oxidised, but not bad at all.
