Bov (11965) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - SEP 16, 2011
from Erzbierschof.ch - black beer under a solid and long lasting dark creamy beige foam; nice lace; robust aroma of cocoa and black chocolate; very roasted and with some hop presence; notes of walnuts; full-bodied and very tasty; a subtle yet solid carbonation; a robust bitterness in top of some sweetness; velvety mouthfeel; very long and very bitter roasted coffeish and chocolatey aftertaste along with nutty, piney, woody and hoppy notes - a tremendous and highly complex beer !

maneliquor (3483) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - MAY 11, 2011
Bottle from Mane Liquor. I must say my expectations for this were quite high and I have been looking forward to this one for a long time now. Had at the Mane Liquor Meeting. Pours a deep, dark brown with a big, fluffy tan head - a good three fingers in width. Nose is pleasant and hoppy. Roasted coffee, chocolate and hops. LOads of chocolate and hops in the taste. Thick chocolate holds its presence with a solid dose of hops finishing the beer off. Amazing ! Delivers in every way although wasn’t expecting such a big hop presence, which isn’t bad at all mind you. Will gladly have again despite the price tag

Borresteijn (6359) - Zaandam, NETHERLANDS - JUN 14, 2010
Bottle at RBESG Rome Grand Tasting. Black, beige brown head. Aroma of hard roasted malts, chocolate, some coffee, light hoppy. Flavour is sweet, hard roasted malts, chocolate, coffee, moccha, very nice coffee and hoppy bitter finish. Loads of flavour in this beer, too much to pinpoint. Fullbodied. I kept going back to this beer at the tasting, I believe I finished the remaining half of the bottle, so thanks a lot to whoever brought this (Jan?)!

UPDATED: OCT 22, 2011 Bottle at CPK thanks to Tom. Pours black-brown with an enormous, beige head. Boozy cocoa nose, some roast, a bit of peat. Flavor is rich, sweet, with tangy roast, peat, dry cocoa, slight alcohol and burnt sugar. Full in body with average to lively carbonation.
