Idiosynkrasie (3249) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - NOV 19, 2013
375ml bottle [BBE 03/2012]. Black colour with late awakening, small to average, firm, creamy, long lasting, fairly lacing, beige head. Sweetish dark malty aroma, notes of treacle, vanilla, oak, leather. Taste is minimally sourish, dry dark malty, lots of oak and vanilla, warming alcohol in the finish. Rich, full bodied, oily texture, sticky palate. No damage in the aroma, sadly a sourish sting in taste.

Thanks to bu11zeye for sharing this bottle. Pours a dark brown color with a tan head. The aroma has a lot of vanilla and chocolate notes with some roasted malt. The flavor is full of chocolate and vanilla as well. I also get some roasted malt and a hint of oak. Fairly dry. Medium to thick mouthfeel and low to medium carbonation. All three of the Caulfield beers were good, but I think this one was slightly better than the other two.

Ibrew2or3 (6530) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - MAY 18, 2013
Woodshed 2.0. Bottle pours with a deep darkness that supports a mocha colored head of foam. The modest aroma offers up dark roasted malts, black strap molasses, slivers of earthy malts and then a chocolate brownie sensation. The taste delivers sweetness heading into dark roasted malts and a bit of tartness. It later picks up additional sourness and chocolate brownie. Interesting and likely a bit beyond its prime.

daknole (8550) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - APR 28, 2013
Very dark pour, tan head. Flavor is ashy, dry, licorice, ashphalt, charred wood. Its good, but I was hoping for more.

BOLTZ7555 (2710) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - APR 21, 2013
Bottle shared by Ibrew2or3 @ Woodshed 2.0! This one has a label more interesting than the beer itself. Lots of peat, smoke, vanilla, cocoa, dark fruit, and coffee. Slick mouthfeel that coats the palate.

KnutAlbert (5776) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAR 12, 2013
Bottle. Very dark. Strong liquorice aroma. Oily. The vanilla fills in the blanks, making a more interesting a nd in a way a more balanced beer than the ordinary version.

fiulijn (13533) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 27, 2012
Bottle from Bierkoning, Amsterdam
Pitch black color with medium sized brownish head, creamy. The aroma is intriguing, with chocolate, whiskey, talc and perfume, tobacco, some oak. Smooth mouthfeel, but the body is slimmer than expected; some flavor of roasted malt, missing chocolate, low residual sweetness, and a mild tobacco character; there is a light sourness that is not fitting; ordinary bitterness, with some pleasant alcohol warmth.
The tobacco vein is nice, more body would be better.

Bottle. Black in colour with frothy tan head. Dark chocolate, some vanilla, burn wood in aroma. Flavour bit similar with some sweet chocolate and vanilla mostly.

Bottle. Pours a black color with a small tan head. Has a roasted malty chocolate and vanilla flavor. Roasted malty slightly sour chocolate and vanilla flavor. Has a roasted malty sour vanilla finish.
