Not much aroma for me. A bit of brown sugar. Dark brown, dissipating tan head. Flavor is bitter chocolate, vanilla, some booze and cola. Sticky mouthfeel. Nice sipper.

bottle. Pours black with an average-sized brown head. Somewhat roasty aroma with some booziness. Somewhat sweet in flavor with roasty notes and a bit of alcohol warming. Smooth on the palate with a warm sweet finish. Very good.

4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
A very dark brown color and a small light brown head. A nice aroma of raisins and banana. The first that hit me was the thickness of the brew in the mouth, but at the same time it is well carbonated. The taste has some sweetness resembling that of liqourice, raisins and prunes, and a decent bitterness as well. Great heavy beer in my opinion!

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Roasty, malt aroma. Appearance is jet black with a tan head that dissipated quickly. Chocolate malt flavor with notes of toast and roast that lingers on the end. Bitterness level is moderate. Wood notes are evident, but more in the background. Mouthfeel is full with medium carbonation with a slight astringency on the end. Overall, it's a good beer that hides the alcohol well. It could use more malt complexity though.

Absolutely loved this! Deep, dark and rich, velvety smooth. Nutty, smoky , woody, some chocolate notes. Warmth without burn. I’d like to get my hands on more of this

3 year-old bottle, 13/8/13. Pours unclear rich brown, not much head. Smells of rich layers of malt, raisins, some red vinous notes, spice. Tastes very sweet, some toasty roastiness, prunes, smooth buttery vanilla oak, xmas spice. Little to no hop character, just the faintest whiff of bitterness. Heavy, thick, sticky, low carbonation. This was delicious and complex but pretty difficult to drink.

Beautiful color. Great aroma. Perfect amount of kick. Best served (for my taste) just below room temperature, in a sniffer.

Very fascinating beer with an aggressive woodiness, fruity character, sweet with hints of molasses. Complex and unique beer.
