4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at Copenhagen Beer Celebration 2012. A black one, topped by a small, tan head. The aroma has lots of coffee, a touch of licorice, some dark chocolate and cocoa, and quite a lot of roasted malts. It’s lightly warming on the palate, sort of boozy so I guess the barrel has some influence, full-bodied, dryish and still sweet. Loads of dark chocolate and cocoa in the flavor, with coffee blending in between. Lasting finish where the coffee are more pronounced than in the aroma and initial flavor, but with the same lovely dark chocolate and coffee. Wow, this is one hell of a beer.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Piwo to potężny (13,5%) mariaż nut drewna i burbonu, kakao, czerwonych owoców, kawy i paloności. Już zapach miażdży zmysły, a w połączeniu ze smakiem i posmakiem kokosu i wanilii rozwala system.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
375ml bottle - thanks martjoobolut! At 13.5%
Ugh - rubber and beans aroma, some booze too. Black, no head worth mentioning. Lightish mouthfeel, crispish carbonation. Taste much better, rich sweet vanillaey roast, and a dumper truck of bourbon with associated booze. However, it’s kinda pleasant. Some coconut in the finish with the sweet vanillaey roast. Ooof, that was a struggle, gullet is throbbing. Sweet boozy booze.
