Tap at Arendsnest, Amsterdam, chilling by the canal 20th June 13. Elegant on the pour, fair head on it, needs to rest. Hops on the nose, thiner palate and lighter than the barrel aged versions . Very drinkable, but prefer the BA

UPDATED: JUL 3, 2013 33cl bottle at home. Shared with Mathieu87. APPEARANCE: pitch black beer, huge mocha stable head. NOSE: somewhat hoppy, little coffee, but the hop is mostly overruling, very weird for a IRS. TASTE: coffee, lots of chocolate, the hops are a lot less prominent in the taste.

Bontus (695) - Flanders, BELGIUM - JUN 1, 2013
Bottle 33cl, thanks to trader mijas65. Pours oil black, itís slick and sticky. Dense cream coloured head. Delicious vanilla coffee nose, roasted beans/grains. Sorachi earthly spice nose. Taste is sweet on the lips but with a deep roasted bitter finish. Palate is very good, creamy, mostly soft carbonation. Long finish, very well balanced.

Leighton (14043) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 22, 2013
Bottle at Borefts 2012 - Bodegraven. Pours black-brown with a creamy brown cap. Dark malt nose, some burnt wood, whiskey. Big sweet flavor with dark fruits, decent alcohol punch, dry burnt out wood, burnt grassy bitterness, nice bitter dark chocolate. Full bodied with fine carbonation. And its chewy. Warm finish with dynamic dark malt character, dark sugars, plums, moderate roast and cocoa. Pretty good balance overall.

Xstream (205) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 20, 2013
Dark brown with mocca colored head. Has a deep burnt hoppy bitter flavor rounded off with some fruity sweetness. Has a dry burnt grapefruit finish. Overal itís a bit too bitter and burnt flavored to my taste, but has a nice body and flavor profile making it still tasty nonetheless.

Bottle from Bierkoning, many thanks. Black color with medium espresso beige head. Maltz aroma with floral hops. Roasted malt, milk chocolate, citrus hops. Very interesting coffee bitter finish with citric hop bitter after taste. Alcohol is dangerously hidden. Extremely tasty beer.

caesar (5799) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - APR 27, 2013
Bottled, almost a year old. Dark color, short brown head. Aroma is of a good RIS: chocolat, roasted malts, molasses. The sorachi ace brings some minty freshness to it, actually a wonderful combination. Balancing is very delicate here I guess, so might be at the perfect age at the moment. Did I see they tried a coconut version of this one as well? I can imagine the mix, as the hops give it a coconutty feel as well. In taste thereís a wonderful mix of sweet biscuity malt and robust chocolat, with a velvet blanket of mint on top. Stunningly good. Just the right amount of sweetness for me. I remember I tried this beer fresher as well and then the minty notes of the sorachi ace were a bit too present in the aroma and bitterness. But with a small year of developing, itís absolutely amazing.
