AshtonMcCobb (2544) - Edinburgh, - SEP 17, 2012
33cl bottle thanks to onkelgobber. Pours opaque black and sticky with a gorgeous big crema. The nose has fresh strawberries and biscuits - maybe jammy dodgers.There’s also dare I say it, a cough medicine note or something herby. Eventually, as you go down the bottle, it’s giving a smokey/charcoal note at the end. The taste has savoury, maybe even meaty, then leading into toffee and nuts, it’s praline! If I’m being picky, it’s a bit cloying but with the richness in the body and the texture it’s not going to be clean, but good length all the same. Overall, an excellent multi-dimensional beer.

MPA (798) - Amager (form. Nørrebro&Aalborg), DENMARK - SEP 18, 2014
Bottle. Aged for a couple of years in my cellar. Black with a nice brown head. Aroma of chocolate, prunes, cocoa, coffee and dark roasted malts. Think palate with a flavour of coffee, roasted malts, cocoa and dark fruit. Sweetness is wrapped with malty, bitter notes reminding of coffee beans. Very solid and powerful flavour. I really like this a lot.

Sample at Haand Festival 2014. Fully black body with a beautiful brown head. Roasted aroma with dark chocolate, ash, leather and earthy hops. Taste is light peat/smoked wood, dark chocolate, fresh roasted coffee, licorice and a light grass note. Good dry and warm mouthfeel, thick body, roasty finish with ash and leather. This is some good stuff!

Idiosynkrasie (3805) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - AUG 29, 2014
330ml bottle. Jet black colour with late awakening, small, thick, creamy, half-way lasting, minimally lacing, dark brown head. Intense, sweetish, dark malty aroma has a nuttily touch, notes of treacle, molasses, vanilla infused chocolate (ice) cream, liquorice, a touch of lovage. Taste is initially dry, roasty dark malty, finds its way over tarmac and shoe polish to woody and smoky, a moderately sweet liquorice basis is present throughout; some warming alcohol in the finish. Oily texture, sticky palate.

tom10101 (2760) - Quebec, CANADA - JUN 8, 2014
Bottle (330 ml). Black with a huge thick dark brown head and little lacing. Aroma is an interesting mix of vinous notes, roasted malt, liquorice and dark chocolate hints of smoke. Taste is also of roasted malt, dark chocolate, vinous/fruity notes, light smoked and light bitterness. Medium/full body. Moderate carbonation. Slightly vinous mouthfeel. Light alcohol warming in the finish. Interesting because it’s not a sweetness bomb and there’s a nice balance between the vinous and roasty presence. Quite tasty.
