KapitiCritique (345) - Xincheng, Henan Province, CHINA - FEB 6, 2014
Huge body, small head, nearly black colour, nose of roasted sugars, grains and nuts, pours like molasses, tastes bitter, slightly of iron. (No where near Guinness Double Stout but it is there.) Remarkable but not something I’d have more than once.

2/3/2014. Pours black with a beige head. Aromas of dark roasted malt, chocolate, dark fruit, spices, licorice. Chocolate and licorice flavors, but with a little too much booze for my taste. Overall not bad at all.

MrBeerFanatic (841) - Buffalo, New York, USA - FEB 1, 2014
Pours moter oil black with a very creamy head that must be drank to dissipate. Big aromas of brownie, chocolate, light roast, wood, oak. Flavors of chocolate malt, like smoke, light French oak, light sherry, light subtle vanilla notes (coming through from wood perhaps), brownie. Silky texture with a medium roasted aftertaste. Medium sweet. Rated right after a buffalo bandits game.

tom10101 (2661) - Quebec, CANADA - JAN 28, 2014
Bottle (330 ml). Very dark brown (almost black) with a small quickly diminishing reddish brown head and no lacing. Aroma of liquorice, dark fruits, chocolate, roasted malt, vanilla, spices and caramel. Taste is moderately sweet with liquorice, fruits, chocolate, roasted malt, vanila, caramel, spices and a warming (alcohol) finish). Full bodied. Moderate carbonation. Spicy finish. A tad too much going on in this one, so the balance is so-so. Complex. Not so drinkable, even for the style.

Torrefacto (516) - Madrid, SPAIN - JAN 28, 2014
Color negro con reflejos caobas y espuma beige oscuro densa, pero poco persistente. Aromas de frutos rojos, madera, tostados y licor. En boca es densa y entra con un ligero dulzor que pasa a una ligera acidez tostada y de madera con toques afrutados. El final y el regusto es licoroso y seco.

This has lots of fresh brownie and espresso in the aroma - mmm. However, I wasn’t blown away by the taste - day-old coffee and cocoa powder dominate. It is more interesting on the palate, where it brings some warmth and astringency. A good big beer, but a little overrated imo.

5000 (6211) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - JAN 21, 2014
Bottle @ Brouwer’s Café:   Black, thin to moderate frothy beige head, some legs in the lacing.   Rich roasted malt nose, some dark chocolate, a little charred wood, but also a slight touch of cow pasture.   Rich sweet and roasty malts on the tongue, dark chocolate, charred wood, and thankfully not that cow pasture I got on the nose.   Warming but not alcoholic.   Moderate to full body and mouthfeel.   Very rich on the finish.   A little ashy on the backside.   Great beer!

Draft in a sampler at Ei8ht Ball. Pours a deep, virtually opaque brown with a small lighter brown head. The aroma is a bit smoky, with roasted malts, toasted sugar, dark chocolate, salted caramel, and a hint of dark fruit and anise. The flavor starts out the same, but instantly drops into more soy and rubbery notes, with just a little bit of chocolate and brown sugar to balance. Medium-bodied, with very little carbonation and a flat, bitter mouthfeel. Very strange. I’m glad I only had a little bit of this.
