MotherBrother (688) - Aalborg, - FEB 9, 2013
Pour opaque, nicely looking pitch black, with a large frothy light brown head. Aroma of chocolate, coffee, sticky brownie, some green apple here and there, wood, slight leather, slight booze, licorice, roasted malts, oatmeal. Really a lot of stuff going, and itís pretty darn delicious. The taste i a little sweet upfront, with a Nice dose of long, bitter and slightly dry finish. Full and sticky bodied, with the perfect amount of slightly flat carbonation. This sure does it for me;)

Klimaet (82) - Aarhus N, DENMARK - JUN 21, 2014
Bottle shared with a friend. Pours black with a shortlisting but very creamy, almost mocca-like brown head. Aroma is extremely boozy, parfumey, chocolate, coffee, licorice and calvados bourbon-like sweetness. This is my first Calvados-aged beer! Taste is extremely sweet, thick and rich of coffee, chocolate and a nice roastedness to it. Bittersweet and roasted dry finish. Good alcohol to the taste but not as extreme as the smell, which is good. Low carbonation and a thick creamy body.

JulienHuxley (2940) - Hilversum, NETHERLANDS - MAY 21, 2014
Bottle. Opaque black pour with thin but creamy and tenacious lacy brown foam. Aroma is very powerful, boozy, rich chocolate notes, very intense, licorice, apple brandy. Taste is sweet, so thick and rich, sweet but not cloying, nice warming alcohol, roasty, almost smoky, really roasty bitterness. Palate is thick and chewy, nice alcohol warmth, low carbonation, really coats the palate. Nice IS

tom10101 (2644) - Quebec, CANADA - MAY 21, 2014
Bottle (250 ml). Shared by JulienHuxley, thanks! Pitch black with a medium thick brown head and little lacing. Aroma is boozy at first, but it then open up and itís rich with calvados, roasted malt, chocolate/brownies, vanilla, oak and fruity notes. Taste is also rich and sweet (not cloying in small quantity), chocolate, vanilla, fruity notes, calvados, light acidity and roasty finish. Full bodied. Moderate carbonation. Thick mouthfeel. Chewy mouthfeel. Sticky roastiness. Tasty, but so thick and rich and itís hard to drink even a small glass. Complex. Enjoyable in small quantity.

rxeight (1222) - Illinois, USA - MAY 8, 2014
Bottle, thanks Erik. Dark black pour. Sweet boozy smell. Taste initially was a dark smokey malt. As it warned up more of the fruit and booze came out. Has a slightly tart Granny Smith apple taste. No back end heat, just some lingering sweet booze. Palate is thick and almost overly oily.
