75 cl bottle. Thanks to my friend Mike. Great black colour with a dense light brown head. Great aroma of redwine, roastedness, sweet malt and little alcohol. Very nice flavour of sweet roastedness, chocolate, vanilla, little alcohol and hints of oak and wine. Very nice mouthfeel and a roboust body. This one is a master piece, thanks Mike.

Blind tasting - hand bottled. Pitch black in colour with a small but dense brown head. Very well balanced and complex - notes of coffee, chocolate, dried dark fruits and a somewhat woody dryness. Also a hint of vanilla.

MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 14, 2010
A Mes rate. Bottle opened at Lahore Kebab House, HUGE thanks to Jan and Charlotte.
Woooooo this is a good one. Pitch black pour with a very good tan head. Massive chocolate goodness, superb liquorce, slight soy and oxidisation plus a truck load of bourbon barrel madness that, for all it’s massiveness is not overpowering the awesomeness in the background. Utterly glorious hints of coconut and vanilla that sit so well along side the roasted coffee character. Sublime creamy chcolate throughout. The finish is just bloody amazing. A huge smack in the mouth that contains everything I have just mentioned and eventually settles on a lasting bitter coffee that just goes and goes. Bloody excellent beer all round.

Bottle at the RBESG 2012 Grand Tasting, London. Vintage 2006. Pours opaque black-brown with a medium tan head. Huge dark, ripe fruit nose with some chocolate notes. Very sweet flavor with tangy dark malts, mild roast, and chocolate syrup. Full bodied with fine to medium carbonation. Bit of warmth in the finish. Lingering roast with mild wood and oak notes, and plenty of mocha. Great stuff.
