MrHangover (2139) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - OCT 14, 2012
Bottle. Jet black pour, small tanned head. Aroma of booze, dime strange notes that must be the soriachi ace. Very boozy flavor and sweet notes. Interesting, but less than the ardbeg.

Bottle @ mr. Hangover tasting. Aroma is grassy spicy hops with some roast and liquorice. Flavour is fresh sweet hoppy herbal, it brings the ris down a bit imho.

jackl (3859) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - OCT 11, 2012
Bottle sample @ Borefts 2012. The pour’s deep brown with a modest off-white head. The nose is of soft chocolate and bucolic field, some caramel and grassy funk. The taste is buttery hot cocoa, soft toffee. Hints of grassy straw and hay. Smooth, but a bit too buttery for my tastes. Oily. Overall, a bit awkward.

mR_fr0g (1970) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 8, 2012
pitch black with a thick head. Good lacing. Nutty, roasty aroma. Great sorachi ace flavour that melds well with the huge malty blackbone. Great.

Fin (7012) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 3, 2012
Bottle at Cafe in de Wildemaan, Amsterdam, Netherlands, Wednesday 3rd October 2012 Shark eye black, oily, thick, heavy stout. The very friendly and helpful barnan suggested that the Sorachi Ace made this quite bitter, I tend to disagree, there was some bitterness but it was more than cancelled out by a full roastiness but very thick and heavy in mouth. There is a tangy coffee flavour, good, really good. A7 A4 T8 P4 Ov14 3.7
