Cirrhosis (1261) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 26, 2013
Dark brown with slight red highlights, very long lasting creamy cap considering the style. Aroma is creamy and sweet, pretty hoppy, mild chocolaty malts, smells really good. Very malty, with a nice hoppy finish. Chocolate, peach, sooooooooo smoooooooooth. Dark fruits, coffee, mild oak. This awesome beer is good.

spacecube (1328) - Leeds, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - NOV 20, 2013
330ml bottle, pours deep dark brown, aroma chocolate, coffee, rich dark fruit, rich chocolate, finish balanced and moderate bitter, carbonation is low, very rich, nice strong beer. Not as individual as the front room, but perhaps more like the kind of stuff I generally like to drink

Ktwse (2808) - SWEDEN - NOV 14, 2013
Pours very dark brown to black with fairly low tan head. Aroma of barrels, not necessarily port, dates, figs, dark chocolate, burnt muscovado. Taste is rich, full, boozy sweet with port, dates, sugar... Light bitterness in the finish. Very warming. Rich and creamy body with soft carbonation. Front Room is better, this is still very good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

SlackerMads (2100) - DENMARK - NOV 4, 2013
Bottle. Dark brown with a medium sized beige slowly diminishing head. Caramel, wooden oxidized, sherry, dark dried fruits, light cocoa. Medium/full body, medium/heavy sweet and medium bitter. Good balance, no alcohol showing. Soft carbonation and soft on the palate. I had the Front Room recently, but I can’t pin point the differences without tasting them agains each other, but I really like this.

lusikka (7104) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 27, 2013
330 ml bottle.
Pours a dark brown colour with a small off-white head. Aroma of rich dark chocolate, port, oak and raisins. Rich flavour of toasted malts, dark chocolate, salty licorice, distinct heavy port notes, English toffee and grassy bitterness. Full bodied, oily mouthfeel and a long warming, sweet, rich finish. Pairs extremely well with kärtner rahmlaib cheese. A dessert at it’s finest.
