3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle, courtesy of allesmetkaas, @ Rampkrot tasting. Pours a pitch black beer with a small layer of beige head on top. Aroma of wood, oak, molasses, dark burnt caramel, light boozy. Flavour is sweet, alcholic and slightly unbalanced. Thick, sugary mouthfeel and a medium long, sweet finish. Not too complex, yet quite good.

UPDATED: JUN 22, 2013 Thx to allesmetkaas @ Rampkrot Whale tasting – 65 cl. Bottle sampled. Black with little mocha head. Sweet with a reasonable amount of roast, coffee, light liquorish, chocolate, touch dark fruits and dash of booze. Slightly viscous, touch less carb. Certainly enjoyable.

Rich and roasty on the palate with some nice chocolate sweetness. There's also a medicinal character there as well but it's really mild. The nose is similar and the alcohol is present but it doesn't feel like nearly 12%.

coffee brew, expresso with cream and sugar and a finish that develops a bit of Lea and Perrins Worsct sauce ie apricot and plum. Hops shoot thru the palate and the head is formidable with a waft of bourbon and pepper.
