edgallow (2585) - nashville, Tennessee, USA - JUN 17, 2012
12.7 oz bottle pours black with a tan head. Aroma of roasted malts, coffee and alcohol. Taste is the malts, coffee, chocolate and not as much alcohol as I expected. It is a great beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

sebletitje (7277) - Enghien, BELGIUM - MAR 28, 2015
Bouteille 37.5cl, BB 16/02/2022. Brune foncée, col épais crémeux moka, doré au verre. Arôme au bouquet profond de malté, note barrique, le tout est surfait au niveau alcool qui est bcp trop présent, pointe de vanille avec un rétro boisé et grains Au palais, le tout est incroyablement fort en alcool. Les 19% dénaturent complètement la bière, apportant un profil bcp trop réchauffant et par moment rappelant un coté épicé qui en fait ne l’est pas. Retrouve une certaine douceur vanillée et un boisé caractéristique du Makers mais dont toute l’appréciation est gâchée par ce niveau alcoolisé. Au final, bcp trop de booze, et cela tue l’intérêt de cette bière. Pour le prix, franchement déçu.

angel77 (1265) - oviedo, SPAIN - SEP 13, 2014
Botella de 37.5 cl de zombier en llamas en el momento el 13-09-2014 Fecha de consumo pref para antes de 16-02-2022. color negro intenso con espuma bastante oscura que desaparece hasta quedar solamente fina capa. Aromas intensos de bourbon con maltas tostadas y vainillas junto con maderas empapadas de licor. Cuerpo intenso bastante ligero y licoroso gracias a sus 19.3 vol que dan gran sensación alcohólica. Sabores intensos de maderas empapadas en bourbon con toques de maltas tostadas, algo de cacao u especias, vainillas, y maderas licorosas. Muy buena con una tremenda sensación de licor gracias a su dosis alcohólica y su paso ligero por boca.

kappldav123 (5340) - GERMANY - AUG 19, 2014
Huge thanks to yespr for that one. Bottle looks really good. Beer in the glass deep black, small brownish head. Heavy-malty and alcoholic aroma. Starts very, very intense malty, notes of strong coffee, some bitter cacao chocolate, woody-scratchy notes. Hints of liquorice. Finish still intense malty, alcoholic, goes down burning. Too much for me!

Niall73 (2153) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 28, 2014
Bottle. Pours a dark, dark brown. Aroma is lovely - sweet with lots of dark fruit figgy rumminess and meaty soy sauce. Stunned I can’t detect booze in the aroma. Full body, medium carbonation. A boozy delight. There’s some heat from the booze, but this is lovely - dark choc, bitter coffee, burnt treacle, rum, sticky dark fruit, ash, smoke, wood... The booze is so well integrated, it doesn’t jar at all. Tasty.

SlackerMads (1964) - DENMARK - MAY 19, 2014
Bottle. Black with a medium sized slowly diminishing light brown ok lacing head. Heavy bourbon notes of coconut, vanilla and licorice all sorts. Cocoa, chocolate, light grain, burnt malt, hefty alcohol warmth, white sugar. Medium body, oily texture, soft carbonation. Medium sweet, light bitterness. Tickling alcohol on the gums and a burn on the tongue. Ok, but too rough. Light dry and astringent finish.
