Bottle at Chriso going Dutch tasting, 03/07/14. Black with a moderate dirty tan swirl and edgeing. Nose is big roasty tones, light tangerine, Terry’s Chocolate Orange, dark chocolate. Taste comprises rich chocolate, more from Terry, roast malt, subtle BA, sweet orange liqeur notes. Full bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close. Decent BA impy but not top draw, little overly sweet and sticky at times.

Habanero (2449) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK - JUL 6, 2014
Bottled. Pours black with a small, lacing tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, dark fruit, coffee, chocolate, orange notes, vanilla and wood. Sweet flavor that ends up more dry with some alcohol. Full to medium bodied, oily texture and soft carb. A lovely Impy but quite similar to the regular though.

Bottle at home with friends. Pour is deep brown, almost black with a small tan head and good lacing. Big roasty, liquor barrels, oaky, somewhat citrusy, vanilla, bourbon, graham crackers, and oaky aroma. Taste is rich dark chocolate, ash, cocoa nibs, espresso, roasted malt, green peppers, rich coffee cake, and spice. Syrupy mouthfeel with soft carbonation. Rich decadent coffee chocolate spice cake. So good!!

Pour out of 375 mL thanks Stephen! Dark black pour with tan head, aroma brought notes of dark cocoa, roast, citrus, lemon, hints of raisin, slight oaky tones. Taste is a mix of dark cocoa, roast, citrus, lemon, oak, honey, slight yeast, finishing fairly sweet, slightly dry. Yum.

Tmoney99 (10413) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 20, 2014
Bottle shared by alexsdad06. Poured a black color with an average frothy brown head that lasted with fair lacing. Moderate to heavy roasted dark chocolate, orange, vanilla wood and alcohol aroma. Heavy toasted dark chocolate malt and citrus flavor with a heavy dark sweet and small alcohol bite finish of long duration. Copious body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. This is a standout beer.
