teorn88 (5581) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 9, 2015
33cl bottle at the 42nd level tasting, London. Many thanks to Ken. It pours a dark brown color with a medium beige head. Aroma is sweet with caramel and molasses. Taste is sweet upfront and then bitter, with notes of charcoal and coffee, quite dry and astringent. Medium bodied with good carbonation. Overall, ok

jksipa (688) - Newmarket, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 11, 2015
Bottle from the brewery. Black with burgundy highlights under a huge pillowy khaki head that lingers and leaves great lace all the way down. Nose has tons of espresso, chocolate, molasses, pine and resin with floral notes and hints of vanilla. Light sweet support for a prominent coffee and chocolate bitterness and herbal notes in the finish. Medium+ creamy body with average carbonation and a lingering dry bitter finish. Great example of my favourite style.

Idiosynkrasie (5855) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - SEP 6, 2015
341ml bottle. Darkest brown colour with huge, creamy, fully lasting, moderately lacing, beige to tan head. Roasty dark malty, chocolately aroma, notes of coffee, piney, resinous, citrusy and leafy hoppy overtones. Taste is dry, bitter hoppy, minimally papery, chalky and medicinal bitterness, a touch of pine and resin, roasty dark malty basis, slightly watery passages. Sadly a loss of fruitiness in taste.
