ctiry (99) - CZECH REPUBLIC - DEC 19, 2014
On tap in beergeek. Aroma full of roasted malt, fruity esters and caramel. Sweet to sour taste with some bitterness. Very hard to describe or catch any single note it is so complex... Too extreme for me to judge. It is not a beer it is somethig... Something...I dont know ;)

Bottle from 2010 shared with BBGTC. Pours a black body with a medium tanned head. Aroma is sweet, alcoholic and roasty. Taste is extremly sweet and somewhat cloying. Moderate roast and alcohol. Hints of tar, leather and bitter coffee. Body is slick and soft co2.

probstblueribbon (3058) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 9, 2014
375 ml bottle from LCBO, served cool in a tulip glass.

App.: Very, very deep black-brown with a full mocha head. Aroma: Deep, dark and black with roasted, nearly burnt malt, SO much alcohol, cooked green pepper and peppercorns, intense...too much. Palate: Full-bodied with minimal carbonation. Flav.: Much like the nose with some additional slight additional depth from molasses, still REALLY boozy; sweet with big bitterness and HUGE moth-numbing alcohol.

Completely over-the-top. I regret opening this alone.

Beese (2555) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 7, 2014
Draught at Craft Beer Co, Clerkenwell. Poured a thick black, with a dense tan head. Aroma of burnt sugar, roasted malt, liquorice and Oxo. Thick, full mouthfeel. Burnt malt flavours, with treacle, soy sauce, some grassy hop. Finish was earthy, with whisky, booze and rum.

Christopsy (113) - SCOTLAND - DEC 5, 2014
On tap at Mikkeller Bangkok. Pours pitch black with a coffee head. Smells coffee malty heaven. Tastes big, bold, black, and beautiful. There is no other way to describe it. This is my new favorite beer.

375ml bottle
17.0% ABV (as marked on bottle)
Queen’s Quay LCBO Outlet (Toronto, Ontario, Canada)
November 22, 2014
Part of the 2014 Mikkeller feature at the LCBO. The beer pours a solid black with a generous dark brown bubbly head. The aroma is roasted malt, dark chocolate, molasses, and soy sauce. The mouthfeel is full bodied with average carbonation. The flavour is roasted malt, smoked wood, coffee, and anise. Finish is very bitter, almost rubber flavoured. Alcohol was well hidden, but not what I was expecting, and quite a letdown.
