4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Clear dark black color with a average, creamy - frothy, good lacing, mostly lasting, light brown head. Aroma is heavy malty, roasted, burnt, chocolate, coffee, heavy hoppy, moderate alcohol. Flavor is heavy sweet and bitter with a long long duration, and a very nice dry finish. Body is full, texture is creamy - syrupy and very smooth, carbonation is flat, finish feel is heavy alcoholic.
Brilliant beer, better than Weasel imo.

Black engine oil, no head and no need for either. Really sweet licorice typed aroma is strong, berries, bit sherry, herbs. Full body, oily slick feel, sweet and bitter, lots and lots of sweet flavor with long finish, soft carbonation. Tasty and nuanced, lots of personality, dessert-type beer.

Bottle. Black with a cinnamon head. Boozy nose with chocolate and orange. Taste is sweet with citrus notes and loads of very dark malts. Very creamy but also bitter and sharp. Very intense beer.

Draft at Borefts 2013. Pours pitch black with a small to medium brown head. Aroma has quite some licorice, tar, iodine, alcohol and some roasted malts. Taste has more roasted malts that the aroma, coffee, chocolate, iodine and it has a bit of an alcohol burn. Better than I expected, especially the taste. Probably too much to have a whole bottle of though.

Thick black pour with a decent brown head. Aroma is crazy boozy. Almost drowns out the other notes of chocolate, espresso and smoke. The flavor is more of that. Crazy peaty alcoholic finish. All a little too much for me.

Pitch black body, still a good, brown head. Thick, dark, chocolate, pecan, cookies, earthy. Very rich and aromatic. Sweet base, quite bitter too. Thick palate, sticky and luscious. Really big and tasty. I like it. (On tap at Expres de Lyon)

Borefts 2013 - Alcohol is quite strong in the aroma along with some tar-like bitterness. Texture is thick and oily. Initial flavour is quite fruity like wine or port. Then comes the warmth of the alcohol giving the impression of brandy. Finally rounded off with bitter burnt/roasted malts.
