skortila (4484) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - AUG 25, 2014
Bottled @ Zeebra#2. 10cl sample. The aroma has vanilla and chocolate mainly, alightly boozy tones, but not suggesting 19.5%. Black coloured beer with a thin, off-white head. The taste is sweet, has vanilla, chocolate, bourbon, light roast. Medium-full bodied. Complex. Very nice!

Travlr (11339) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - AUG 20, 2014
Thanks to nimbleprop (I think) for sharing this bad boy. Pours oily black. Nose has old leather, burnt licorice, coffee pot left on the burner too long, and of course smooth dark chocolate syrup. Taste is very sweet dark cocoa, burnt espresso, vanilla. Definitely a big beer, tastier than I expected.

nimbleprop (4847) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - AUG 20, 2014
750ml bottle pours an oily black with a ring of beige head. Legs like a scotch. Nose is like rocket fuel, raw vanilla bean, and I mean nearly GREEN vanilla bean, cocoa nib, grain alcohol, toast, raisins, quite a lot of toasted wood. Flavor has maple and birch notes, smoke, cakey, chocolate, raisin, vanilla, caramel. Hot finish. What a shock there.

solidfunk (3902) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - AUG 20, 2014
Very thick and syrupy, like most super heavy Bruery beers. Pours syrupy dark brown with amber tinge. Not much head or lacing. Tons of caramel and booze. Finishes sweet. Thanks to someone for sharing this at Gene’s 10K celebration.

BeerandBlues2 (9601) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - AUG 19, 2014
Bottle shared at Travlr’s 10k tasting. Pours opaque black with a small, frothy brown head, short retention with spare lacing. Aroma is chocolate, sweet caramel and vanilla, dates, figs and light licorice notes, bourbon nose. Flavor is sweet dark malt dominant, sweet chocolate, molasses, dark fruits, light hops and bitterness with a sweet finish. Full body and light carbonation.

From a bottle at Bluejacket during Travlr’s 10,000th beer rating celebration. Pours a cloudy dark brown with a slight tan head. Aroma of chocolate and plums. Sweet flavors of dark fruits. Boozy finish with lots of hot alcohol burn.

This beer is the beer that people would die and kill for....this is simply the most beer ever made by mankind. You haven’t lived unless you’ve had Chocolate Rain.

markextrae (947) - NETHERLANDS - AUG 3, 2014
Bottle in a trade. Shared it right after the Black tuesday. Dark Brown pour, with a small non lasting caramel head. Leaves good lacing on the Side. Sweet cacao, bakers chocolate, sweet Bourbon, lot’s of vanilla, Bourbon soaked plums, the alcohol burn is Way lesser here compared with the Black tuesday because of the more cacao sweetness and vanilla, thick and smooth mouthfeel. But yes.. It’s a very heavy beer that you love or hate. There is nothing in between. But i loved it! And i’m lucky enough to have an extra bottle in the cellar for a long time!
