ciocanelu (989) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - JUN 16, 2016
Dark brown color with tan head. Aroma has dark malts, some brown sugar spicy yeast notes, pepper and some dark fruits. Taste starts balanced with dark, roasted malts and brown sugar, spicy pepper and finishes hoppy and bitter with some lingering coffee and chocolate flavor. Medium body and carbonation. Overall it’s a really interesting, complex tasting beer.

Bozo_skeleton (931) - Grenoble, FRANCE - MAY 29, 2016
Noire, petit collet de fines bulles. Aromes cafe, chocolat et poivre Autant sa presence est faible en arome autant une fois en bouche le poivre se remarque bien (sans toutefois dominer outrageusement). Corps moyen, finale bien enveloppante à l’amertume soutenue. Hummmmm

Werckmeister (1837) - Vienna, AUSTRIA - FEB 11, 2016
0,33l bottle at home. BB 23.02.2016. bottle says 6% ABV. almost black color, small coffee-colored head. smells of berries, light raspberries, light licorice, hints of exotic fruits, light mango, light coconut, some wood. wow, interesting smell. medium to full body, soft carbonation, slick mouthfeel. tastes lightly roasted, berry notes again, rapsberries, a bit unclean, some coffee, light licorice again, light earthy, lightly peppery. finishes lightly dry and lightly roasted also a bit bitter with notes of raspberries and earthy notes. rather unique beer, there was a light uncleanliness on the taste at first, but after a while that disappeared. the raspberry notes are very nice, and rather interesting, I guess they could be related somehow that the beer is kinda old (close to bb date?). overall great beer.

chimayx (25) - FRANCE - FEB 11, 2016
Odeurs de chocolat assez doux, de caramel, de réglisse. Odeurs herbacées également qui font pencher cette bière plutôt vers la black IPA que vers la stout. Corps de densité moyenne, bonne buvabilité, l’épaisseur est modérée. Arômes de malts torréfiés, chocolat, houblons herbacés et amères, et une très forte présence du poivre noir. IL n’apparait pas tout de suite dès les premières notes, mais monte très fort au bout de quelques secondes, on ne peut pas le rater! Ce poivre est balancé par les arômes plus chauds et doux de chocolat, c’est un très bel équilibre. Finale poivrée, d’une poivre très aromatique, fleuri, fruité, et qui apporte également une chaleur épicée en finale, qui est également riche en amertume houblonnée.
