Fles gedeeld met bryanvdv en lachneger. Donker bruin van kleur. Koffie geur met een vleugje citrus. Lekker biertje met koffie en chocolade invloeden. Zoet met heel klein bittertje. Lekkere body. Aanrader. Very true.

Rune (9405) - Tromsø, NORWAY - DEC 4, 2013
Big thanks to Fin&Loz&Isobel for this beer gift. 330ml bottle. Creamy, tan-coloured head. Pitch black body. Dark vanilla and dark malts on the nose. Mixed flavours of dark fruits, slightly roasted coffee beans, and chocolate leading to a malt-fruity ending. Well bodied. Fine, slow sipper (shared with Finn as a part of our mass online tasting, Tromsø 03.12.2013).

GothGargoyle (1704) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 28, 2013
Black with a small but persistent beige head. Aroma is chocolate, vanilla, plums, raisins, molasses, hint of dill. Velvety mouthfeel, full bodied, thick and complex on the palate, subtle bitterness, with some roasty wood notes on the finish. Taste is chocolate, raisins, lemon peel, dates, prunes, molasses. Damn this is good.

mathieuc (2285) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 28, 2013
Bottle from quicklearner, thanks! Aroma is roasty and fresh, quite weird. Some fresh mint sensations with a big roasted malt character. Not ashy, though. Pours a really dark brown with a brown head that leaves some lacing and has a somewhat good retention. Taste is again fresh and not too sweet (good!), some roasted malt induced bitterness. Minty flavors along some coffee-like feelings. Alcohol is felt quite a bit. Carbonation is medium-high, a bit too much for me. Body is kinda full, still. A weird one, really.

Bouteille de 330ml meilleure avant 2014. Merci Patrick. Liquide brun foncé avec une mousse épaisse. Un nez de chocolat et de houblon herbeux. En bouche le liquide développe de drôles de saveurs acides, piquantes. Une bière un peu chaude. C’est un drôle de mélange qui à mon humble avis ne fonctionne pas.

teddybeer (2810) - Madrid, SPAIN - OCT 19, 2013
Bottle thanks to Douberd and the European Local Swap II. Black colour with a light beige head, good retention with nice lacework. Aroma is coffee and black chocolate, toasted malts with hints of bourbon. Flavor is smooth and creamy, roasted and toasted malts, coffee, licorice traces, ripe fruit and borbon dominating. The final is slightly alcoholic, with light bitterness and a long and strong bourbon aftertaste.

ElManana (1148) - Scheldewindeke, BELGIUM - OCT 19, 2013
UPDATED: JUN 4, 2015 Black body with thin head. Nose of malts, licorice and caramel. Taste is nice dark molasses, licorice, some hops in the house. Quite complex and layered. Tres bien!

Nice beer, bit thick and sticky with a ligthbrown head. Chocolate, bit of liquorice like the normal emelisse IRS. This one is more herbal tasting and more in your face then the normal IRS, not an everyday beer but very nice to try.

Armadill0 (318) - FINLAND - OCT 12, 2013
Bottle. Aroma has sweet liquorice, cocoa, some soy and chocolate. Taste has cocoa, roasted malt and some citrus. Quite sour in the middle. Alcohol punches through a bit, mixing oddly with the flavor. Not bad at all. Taste is general is a strange mix of dry hops and sweet malt. Packs a punch and definetly has character.

SlovakSniper (3986) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 9, 2013
Une bouteille de 33 cl. Meilleure avant 2014. Une belle robe brune foncée et une mousse impératrice. Une dentelle qui s’éparpille sur ma tulipe. Au nez, je sens des fruits ténébreux, de la vanille salée, des pointes chocolatées et d’agréables notes rôties. De façon honnête, je ne reconnais pas très bien le jeu du Sorachi. Sur les papilles, des saveurs de malts rôtis, de raisins et de sucres noircis qui sont bien imbibées par un alcool floral et poivré. En bouche, un corps bien crémeux qui s’étend avec une belle véhémence. Un mouvement des bulles qui rend l’appareil acceptable. Une finale chaude et brûlante comme une première gorgée de Bombay Sapphire.
